You may ask yourself what is so special about tomatoes.  And, in fact, it’s not a particularly beautiful photograph, either.  But after a five-year hiatus, I am able to eat both raw and cooked tomatoes again.  And every time I eat them, I am so appreciative of how flavorful and delicious they are!

I’m lucky to work with such an amazing team at work.  Every once in awhile I get a thank you from someone on the team, and I feel so blessed that the appreciation is reciprocated.  This unexpected little gift and the accompanying note left me feel very lucky indeed.

Awhile back, I pre-ordered a new kitchen device called the Almond Cow, which is supposed to make milk from nuts.  I liked the idea because I’m allergic to so many of the additives in milk.  It arrived today, and I have to confess that it more amazing than I could have imagined.  I tried cashews today, and I took their advice on the remaining pulp – it make a great snack!  I have already purchased macadamia nuts, pecans, and almonds to try.  I’m thrilled, because being able to make my own nut milk is really a breakthrough in an otherwise pretty restricted diet.

Late wedding gifts from a friend at work.  Just a few years after the fact, but still a wonderful gesture – we love them!

Dinner out at The True Kitchen in Chicago. Great options and flexibility for a family with tons of allergies. Nice atmosphere, too.
