I have taken pretty much most of the summer off from blogging. I'm hoping if I get back in the swing of things, the weather will cool a tad. This summer the joy of cooking was lost. Don't get me wrong, I cooked nearly every, single day. Diet restrictions are killing me.
My son was here for 8 weeks. He was skeptical of a diet with no gluten. Partly I felt bad denying him of whole wheat bread, partly I wanted him to eat strictly gluten free just in case he too has Celiac. I did my part. His diet would have been gluten free, except for the beer-darn barley!
My mother-in-law, who also lives here, was put on a low potassium diet + other restrictions. We love potatoes and beans, seeing as how they make for easy and inexpensive side dishes. Both are loaded with potassium, as are the multitude of fruits abundant in the summer, which by-the-way also make lovely side dishes.
Here goes the menu, and I can't guarantee everything is low potassium, as the rest of the family needs potassium.
