Hi everyone! My kids got home yesterday, yay! I missed the little stinkers :)
Last week I did a week of easy dinners and it was so simple and delicious! I love dinners that take all off 15 minutes to throw together and are healthy too. My husband didn’t even mind because I always made sure to include a meat. Basically on Monday I cooked up a whole chicken in the slow cooker and that lasted us at least three meals. I didn’t turn on the oven the entire week and I even managed to lose all the holiday weight I’d gained…bonus!
So this week with my kids returning I wanted to start introducing a new food to my allergic son (11). He has some food aversions due to his extensive food allergies so getting him to try new foods can be pretty painful. I found some safe wheat free oats that I’d like him to try and I think this recipe for Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Baked Oatmeal might just do the trick. Wish me luck! Thanks to a MPM participant for the recipe lead :)
