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.

Breakfast and Lunch

Tomorrow breakfast and lunch. I'll heat the frozen buckwheat pancakes and blueberries. Top with cottage cheese and 2 hard boiled eggs on the side.  Lunch will be reheated frozen meatloaf and toasted homemade bread.  I pre-toast my bread and put in a sandwich bag the night before. I don't seal in fully until the next morning so the steam escapes. 

I pre-cook big batches of buckwheat pancakes.  Pre-package my lunch the night before.  Breakfast is usually pancakes and cottage cheese or egg sandwiches, sometimes with some dubliner. Lunch is something I made the night before, or something I had extra and froze.  I've been having sliced cucumbers with my lunch this week but I'm out for tomorrow and I'm tired. It's Thursday.  I have zucchini in the fridge but just can't do it.  :-). Cheers!

I'm showing the pancakes frozen invthe background. The cottage cheese and blueberries from my bushes. I also freeze the berries on cookies sheets. Place them in a ziplock and use the same.

Green Bean Harvest

My husband was dissatisfied with the pole beans we grew last year, so he's planted 3 - 25 foot rows this year. 

There's weeds!  You do what u can do, when u work too. Plus we have had excessive rain the year. 

Here's last weekends harvest, and there will more this coming weekend. 
Blanched and froze 5 pints snap beans and 4 pints french cut beans
Here's how I french cut beans. You can find this rotary cutter or a hand cutter on Amazon. 
Canned 16 pints
My tall pressure canner holds 16 pints.
