As far as the dairy-free eating is going... well, it's going. Not really looking forward to a Christmas party tomorrow, although it hopefully means we can get rid of a bunch of cookies I foolishly baked with our children... and can't eat. Based on advice, I am also planning a trip to Trader Joe's tomorrow, since they seem to be the only place locally I will be able to get some CHOCOLATE without milk in it. Basically, for any party for the next month or more, I will be bringing something to share and something else for me to eat. Bah.
I did make some rice krispy treats (with PB and honey) that helped a lot yesterday & today - just having something to eat that feels like a treat lessens the impact of all the cookies and chocolate taunting me.
I also need to broaden my dairy-less recipe repertoire. I'm sick of PBJ as my only fall back for lunch time, and I'd like to get back to doing some one-pot meals for dinner.
