Brain Dump, Vaguely Allergy Style

In the process of sitting down to write this post, I received seven! phone calls. I don't know why I can't get anything done.

ANYWAY, bullet time:

  • Go Dairy Free is having a Bob's Red Mill grains giveaway! Enter by Oct. 2.
  • You can learn more about the quinoa you might win here.
  • Stephanie O'Dea's newest Slow Cooker book is out. It's on my birthday list, hint hint.
  • Yes, my birthday is tomorrow. It can be late.
  • Isn't it weird to hit ages you remember your parents being? I still remember the '39 forever' cocktail napkins someone bought my dad as a joke. And here we are.
  • Julie Bowen narrates a free children's allergy e-book you can find here. Don't tell me what happened on Modern Family; we're watching it tonight.
  • Modern Family will help wash away the tears left from last night's NYPD Blue episode where Bobby died. Why did I watch it again? Whhhyyy?
  • We recently had the chance to try Enjoy Life Food's Decadent Bars. While I enjoy making homemade granola bars, it is so nice to have a prepackaged snack option I trust that is nationally available. These are perfect to take to events where the snack may not be safe, and they are an easy item to tell people about if they want to provide a safe snack. The flavors are Chocolate SunButter (our favorite), S'mores (the kids' favorite), Cinnamon Bun, and Cherry Cobbler. I will definitely be buying them.
  • We have a ton of apples in the house right now. Yay, fall! What are your favorite apple recipes? 
  • And, there's the phone again....



  2. Thanks for the inclusion and the update. Did you get the slow cooker book?

    Yes, 39 - so weird!

    1. I did! It came in the mail today from my awesome brother-in-law.
