Remember when I had to give up dairy when I was nursing G-man? And it was so awful, all I wanted to do was complain... and share the precious few recipes I had that my whole family loved... and then complain again? Well, we're at it again (so this is the 3rd time I've had to give up dairy... out of 3 babies, for those of you keeping score at home!) This punkin fooled us and kept her symptoms away until she was 7 weeks! Sigh....

Started reading this blog. MODG.
Omg... she is toooo hilarious. I've had to walk away from my desk at work because I was laughing so hard that I feared I might snort or choke on my (soy) starbucks or something. Today, she's talking about giving up dairy, too... Hello again food, you dirty dirty lady. I was first introduced to her by a friend who also has a newborn....and this post totally describes my maternity leave: 10 things about boob feeding that only I'm going to tell you.
You're welcome. ;)
The other thing I did.... I ordered this cookbook from Amazon: Go Dairy Free.
I hate that the only thing I've cooked from it so far was some yummy cinnamon bread. (I might have woken up on a Sunday morning.. after a Saturday evening out without kids!.... and needed something yummy and carby.) Anyway, my menu planning has been totally a low priority lately, so I keep going with my dairy-free standbys: chili, BBQ chicken, grilled chicken, fish.... But as soon as I try some, I'll be sure to pass them on!!
