Mama's Got 'Em Too

No, I'm not a freakin' vulcan. These is side one of my allergy tests. Turns out I'm allergic to everything except black pepper and garlic. I'm not kidding you. Everything else came out positive. Apparently, I have a big problem with yeast. I'm a big honkin' yeast ball. So between finding out this and the corn and milk allergies with Bookworm and Sassypants, I'm at a loss to what we can eat.

I went to the health food store today and bought $168.00 worth of nothing. I have always bought some organic things, but to buy everything natural and without chemicals is mucho expensive.

We had lots of crying today, wanting our old foods. If any of you have suggestions, please let me know. I'm at a loss.

The only thing this 'Dishy Decorator' will be dishing out is garlic water sprinkled with black pepper. Lovely deliciousness.


  1. oh gosh! that's quite overwhelming... i wish i had something to offer, but i don't!!! -so sorry!!! hopefully you will be able to find lots of recipes to accommodate your family. keep us posted on how it's going!

  2. Thanks. Everyday I'm feeling a little better about the situation. I've spoken with lots of other moms who have children with allergies. They've given me lots of great ideas and tips.
