Blessed Little Buggy

I am from South Carolina. In the south, we call grocery carts “buggies.”  Thanks Jamie and Sis for coming up with this blog post title!

I’ve been thinking about doing this for months now- sharing what we buy for groceries.

I think it’s a good thing to share grocery store finds and brands. It took me a long while to get a handle on this food allergy business. Please remember to always read labels in case ingredients change. These finds are safe for us.

Here’s what we avoid due to our food allergies: all dairy, eggs, beef, pork gelatin, canned foods, cinnamon, and kiwi.

Anyway, I buy a lot of the same products every week, so you will most likely see repeats. But every now and then (like today!) we find a new safe food and add it to our list of safe foods/brands.

Today I called Mott’s about their “Fruity Rolls Strawberry Splash.”  We added that to our buggy and SG has already had one and loves it!

So, here’s what we purchased for this week’s menu.

Here’s my confession: I don’t say buggy anymore. I say cart. I’ve lived in the midwest for too long. However, I refuse to say pop for soda. Hahaha! Have a good Monday, y’all!!!

P.S.  These are mostly phone pics so they will not be the greatest quality.  Oh well!  🙂

Delicious Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies: Dairy Free and Egg Free

These cookies are AMAZING! I used Silk Almond Vanilla Milk, sweetened. For the margarine I used Fleischmann’s Unsalted Margarine or Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks and Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Warning- these are highly addictive.

Click here for the link to the recipe from Silk. Thanks Silk for the yummy recipe!!!

SG is going to be so happy to wake up from her nap and find fresh baked cookies waiting for her!!!

Update:  I now add in Enjoy Life chocolate chunks along with the chocolate chips.  Mmmm!  Even better!
