The weather this weekend really matches my mood; rainfall warnings and grey skies go well with newly diagnosed food allergies. It seems ironic that I would turn out to be allergic to eggs and cow’s milk, which ingredients show up more in gourmand cooking?
Weekend breakfasts are feeling pretty sad. I can stick with oatmeal all week, but who can do that 7 days in a row? And now I can’t even have a splash of cream on top to jazz it up. It’s startling (and a bit defeating) how much dairy and eggs show up in products and everyday foods! I realized I couldn’t even put mayo on my bacon and tomato sandwich. What a cruel start to the weekend.
So, my mission today is to find some alternatives. I’m on a hunt for vegenaise, milk substitutes and some goat cheese. A strange turn of events for La Gourmandesse! I’m really not sure what I will bake now, other than wacky cake. I can’t think of any baked goods that don’t call for eggs! Perhaps I will become an involuntary health nut in this process. Just what I’ve always wanted to be.
