A Day in Our Life

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
What a wonderful Sabbath we're having. Last night I made spinach dip.
Elijah, otherwise known as dimple face, consumed his first ever appetizer and he approved.
Then we had lasagna!
And hot apple cider.
After dinner, we enjoyed a fire in our fireplace (I love how this setting on my camera made Eli transparent).
Even though he'd already had some, Elijah tried to steal his dad's cider.
This morning, I decided it was probably time to pack away my fall candles (even though I love them so!)...
...because we woke up to this...
Elijah really enjoyed watching the snow fall.
Andy made these amazing cinnamon roll biscuits for breakfast.  The three of us gobbled them all up. Yum!
Did any of this seem strange to you? Did you remember that Elijah has pretty severe food allergies to egg, dairy and nuts? All of the food in this post was Elijah-safe. Yes, we made spinach dip, lasagna and cinnamon rolls without dairy or eggs!  What a joy to give our boy yummy foods that we can all eat together. I can't tell you how excited I was to feed Elijah lasagna (one of my favorite foods).
Then we went outside and played in the snow (more pictures to come).
There you have it - a day in our allergy-safe Sabbath life.
The end. :)

awesome! Did you like the lasagna? Did you use the Daiya cheese? :)

I wish I could share through the computer screen!

Missy- We LOVED the lasagna. Thanks so much for the recipe! And yes, I used the Daiya cheese. I'm totally sold on it. I'm already thinking of all of the yummy things I'll make with it - pizza and mac and cheese are on my list next. :) Seriously, I'm really impressed. No other fake cheese even compares - and you're right -it's hard to find ones that don't have casein. Bonus that Daiya also doesn't contain gluten or soy. I've been raving about it all weekend, I think my hubby is sick of hearing about it. ;) But, I'm just so excited! So, thanks for both the recipe and for pointing me in the direction of Daiya.
