Sometimes it’s the Little Things

I knew it was going to be a good day when I returned an item at Banana Republic, and found a fabulous sale with an extra 30% off sale items, including an item my son asked for for Christmas. (Shhhh… it’s a surprise.)

Then I was off to the health food store to stock up on some items I needed for holiday baking projects, including Earth Balance shortening and Living Harvest hemp milk (I never seem to have enough of these staples).

I was also in search of gluten free oatmeal. I love my oatmeal in the morning, and while I don’t think I need to go completely gluten-free, I have noticed that some days I have some gastro-intestinal problems after breakfast which I am assuming is due to cross-contamination with wheat (one of my allergies). I not only found Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oatmeal, but I also found Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oat flour. Yeah!

Then I did a quick tour of the frozen foods section and I nearly jumped up and down for joy when I found Living Harvest Tempt frozen dessert. Until now we’ve not been able to find this close to home. And yes, I know it’s almost winter, and it’s freezing outside, but this stuff (especially the chocolate fudge) is yummy, and my milk-allergic son is home from school, and I soooo wanted to make his day! Yippee!

Sounds like a great day overall. This time of year we are using up all our allergy free dry-goods faster than I can buy them it seems.

Me too! It's great we have allergen-free options to choose from.
