Collage Friday ~ A Full Week

My Favorite Resource this week is the book, Eat Like a Dinosaur.  This cookbook is based on the Paleo diet.  I am not claiming that the Paleo diet is the best way to eat; however, for someone responsible for preparing meals for a child who is allergic to all grains, this cookbook is especially useful.  It has wonderful pictures and the food tastes GOOD.  Only one child died over eating the Brussels sprouts. LOL They all happily ate the Ratatouille and the Fool's Gold Nuggets.  My son is allergic to most tree nuts so we have to adapt the flour when it calls for almond flour.  Otherwise, the cookbook needs no adaptation.  The two pictures of metal dishes is our new lunchbox system for camp and picnics.  On my journey to rid our family of corn, we have discovered that corn is in all BPA-free plastic and all paper products.  The only safe options are metal, china, stoneware and  glass for dishware.  I am pleased with this three piece lunch system.  I bought a smaller stainless steel container for dips that fits into the larger containers perfectly.

I took lots of picture of my girls in my wedding dress this past week.  It was a fun photo shoot.  I loved sharing my wedding dress with them.  More photos are in the blog entry below this one.
We attended a wonderful water-themed party this past week.  The kids had a great time getting each other wet.  They had a water balloon fight and a relay to fill a bucket of water (boys against girls). 

I am joining Homegrown learners and Learning all the time.

  1. LOVE the pictures of your sweet girl in your wedding dress. What a precious memory that will be. Great idea! My favorite is the one with her toes sticking out. :)

    I just heard about 'eating like a caveman' this week! It sounded interesting. Didn't know about the book though. I'll have to check that out! I love anything party having anything to do with WATER!

  2. What a NEAT book! I am so glad you all found it and can find some yummy new recipes for your ds. I know what it is like to search and search for good recipes for someone who has a limited diet. I pray blessings on this journey and I pray that he may overcome some of his allergies.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  3. I loved the photos of your girls in your wedding dress :)

    I don't know much about the paleo diet, but I have friends who swear by it. It must be super difficult to deal with so many food allergies. I hope the paleo way of eating helps your family.

    A water party sounds fun!

    Thanks for linking up :)

  4. I love the pictures of your girls in your wedding dress--especially the little bare feet! Wonderful keepsake photos!
