    I'll take any recipes I can get that are child/husband friendly even some that aren't. I am so tired of peas and green beans.

    Yeah I have talked to my husband about it a few times. Then I finally screamed at him on night when the pizza showed up. For a while I'd fix his plate and just set it in front of him and he'd eat it. But then I began feeling like I was his servant and stopped doing that.

    I know. There are options in Olympia, too. I screw up when I've let myself get so hungry that I just eat whatever is available (like Costco pizza today).



    Yeah, that's what I do. I don't even cook that much, but when I do, that's what there is and you either eat it or grab a yogurt and some fruit for your dinner.



    A big problem I have is the planning and organization that is required to stick to a gluten-free diet. I don't know if it's my ADD or if everyone struggles with that, but it's nearly impossible for me to plan meals, so I end up eating really unhealthy things for dinner (like ice cream), because I haven't planned anything ahead of time.

    As I understand it, the blueberries need to have about 1/3 of the old growth removed each year to add vigor for new growth. Without the pruning they get old and produce poorly or stop producing. There is/was an abandoned blueberry "orchard" (?) a couple of miles from us. Every year they produced less and less. Eventually a developer bought the land and built houses so we had to plant our own bushes! DH does the pruning and they do great.

    Oh I SO understand that, when I'm by myself I have an incredibly hard time planning meals, and I don't have ADD to blame, it's just me. When I had to cook for my DD I did a much better job. It was the sense of being responsible for another person I'm sure. Now she's the one trying to teach me better ways. Love it.

    Keep trying!
