Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

September 17 Shopping

My husband went with me shopping yesterday.  I had a really good time.  I don't think he will go again.  We went to the farmers market.  There were more vendors there than the 1st time that I went.  I think because it's cooler now.  I checked out the Kroger.  OMG  It's the biggest Kroger I have ever been in.  It's almost as big as a costco, but it is really a Kroger.  They have all kinds of specialty items for all ethnics.  I went to check it out because I found on the internet they carry Kosher food.  They really do and I saw a lot of Jewish people in the store.  So I am expecting them to have the KFP items in Feb or Mar.   Yeah!!!!  If I can just make it through the winter!  So there was a hydropontic gardener at the farmers market!  Neat!  I got spinach, swiss chard, green onions, and they gave me the fresh rosemary!  From another vendor I got fresh unwashed green beans with no pesticides!  Also, butternut squash, and yellow summer squash.  I am trying some NY steaks from the grass feed beef guy.  I am excited to get food.  It's a long trip so I don't go but every couple of weeks after my husband gets paid.  I got Redmond salt, and it doesn't bother me!  All the other salts I have tried haven't worked.  I will be sending a lot of food home with my mom.  She likes that idea. 
I took my empty glass Circo Vodka bottle to Earthfare.  I had them weigh it before I got some of their bulk unfiltered apple cider vinegar to try.   I noticed the bulk tea I have been using without a problem comes from Frontier.  I used some jelly jars for the tea instead of their bags.  I got Earthfare eggs.  They didn't seem to bother me when I got them before.  I am trying another fair trade bulk coffee.  I used another jelly jar for that. 
I canned 15 pints of pinto beans yesterday before we left.  They have to cook for 75 minutes!  I know it's going to be worth it.  I will be able to open a can of ready to eat food!!!!  yeah!
Thanks for everyone's support!
