Panda Express

Standard

We drove past a Panda Express two days ago on our way to Target, and it reminded me that I wanted Chinese food. So after a quick search for their allergen menu (I found one at http://www.projectallergy.com/documents/AllergyInformation.pdf ), I decided to stop there and get cake and I some lunch. Since we avoid milk and nuts, he had plenty of choices. (Note: he hasn’t had any major issues with cross contamination at most restaurants). I got us chow mein and chicken with mushrooms to share and some orange chicken for myself (we avoid orange and citrus with Cake). I also bought 3 potstickers to share. Cake loved the pot stickers (he has never, ever liked pot stickers any other time I’ve gotten them for him), thought the chow mein was “okay”, and didn’t like the chicken and mushrooms.

Even though there’s a likelyhood of cross contamination, I’m glad I was able to find a Chinese food place for us to go to.

Chocolate chip cookies!

Standard

We are stuck home today and have no cookies in the house. I like cookies. No, I love cookies. Cake must have inherited this trait because he also loves cookies.

After about 15 failed recipes, I tried out the traditional toll house cookie recipe, with replacing butter with Earth Balance Butter and the chocolate chips with Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They came out awesome! Pretty close to the real thing and even Allergy Dad likes them. My guess is making them egg free would be pretty simple – just replace the 2 eggs with 1 1/2 cups applesauce. Cake helped bake them!

Time to eat!
