Chad's mom was here with us last week from Houston. The day she got here she was starting a dairy free and grain free diet for 30 days. I had so much fun tweaking our normal meals to adapt them to be GF and not use any dairy! We joined her on her eating plan, so I thought I'd post some of our meals and menus this week here on the blog. Here's a favorite!
