Basically, the poor kid had rotavirus and now cannot have any sort of dairy for several weeks.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to tell dairy-centric child that he cannot have any cheese, milk, or butter??
It's certainly making me think a little more creatively when it comes to meal planning. Please note that any dish you see below that seems to call for milk or butter, I will be using a dairy-free option.
- Snack Night. This usually involves an assortment of snackable goodies like crackers or bread, cheese (PB or or some assorted nuts for Kieran), fresh fruit, veggies & hummus, etc. I like doing this sometimes in place of pizza for movie night.
- Pizza, cheese-less for Kieran. Thankfully, my preferred pizza crust is dairy free.
- Popcorn. I'll scoop some aside to put some kind of topping other than butter on it.
- Ham and Lentil Soup
- Experiment! Beer Bread
- Sandwiches. I have a thing starting around dinner time so I think I'll give Rob and break and make dinner really simple for him. Especially since he's working all weekend.
- Chips or fresh veggies
- Experiment! Pork Tenderloins with Orange Blossom Honey Mustard
- Rice. I might play with adding toasted pecans and raisins to it.
- Steamed veggies
- Drunken Chicken
- Mashed potatoes
- Tossed salad
