Your menu is great! Welcome to the GFCF life. We are also at our house, our entire house. We have been dairy free for 14+ years and GF for 7 1/2 years. And very low soy. I have a daughter on the spectrum, and we have celiac and I have a severe dairy allergy. We try to focus on the abundance of what we can have and not on what we can't...

It does get easier and the diet was a blessing to my family and daughter. Just thought you would like to know. I have some recipes on my blog if that would help. I am transfering to a new blog site, so am in the process of getting everything transfered over, Uhg! If there is a recipe for something specific you might need, let me know and I'll see what is in my stash! We mommas gotta stick together!

There is a Gluten Free Menu Swap also (I hosted this week) and not everything is dairy free, but everything is gluten free. We just connect our menus after connecting to the Organized Junkie. But alot are also vegan, so it's a great resource!

Okay, longgggg comment! Sorry!

Gluten Free Mommy is the usual organizer of the Menu Swap, but she has been really queasy with this pregnancy, so Gluten Free Goodness is the temp headquarters. This is the link: http://www.gfgoodness.com/swaphqtrs/

It looks like she is the host next week (Monday) and the theme is pomegranets, You DO NOT have to do the theme ingredient. That is just for extra fun if you feel like it. Most of the people in the swap do the menu plan monday, that is how we first saw each other. Hope to see you next week!
