This sounds soooo good! Three out of 5 in this house could eat it (around here that's pretty good odds). When I told you my 6 yr old food allergies I forgot beef, and my 12 yr old is a vegetarian...but sometimes I need to cook for ME too. Right? While I'm here, I wanted to ask if I may add you to my blogroll.

Yes, Please do! Is it ok if I add you to mine?
I don't eat beef so this works for 3 out of 4 at our house and my food
allergy child isn't really big on beef but we're working on it. He's so
limited as it is, but he's picky too and that makes it even harder!!

I know what you are saying. My 12 yr old is the vegetarian, she's allergic to nuts, and hates tofu. I think she may be allergic to dairy but I'm scared to have her tested because I don't know where she will get her protein from! I am adding you to my blogroll and yes you may certainly add me to yours. :)
