Ken digging potatoes in past years

 

 

From the Kitchen.  I have had some company with allergies.  I see this as a challenge – we grow such a variety that I can come up with something for anyone to eat!  As more and more people become aware of allergies, the list has grown since my childhood: tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, gluten, nightshades (tomato – potato), soy, etc.  I now make a list of ingredients on an index card when I bring things to a pot luck.

For this guest Kkale and sage 011en made a Caesar salad, and I did a carrot kale dish with our meat and rice.  Sometimes I make cornbread with buckwheat and corn – no gluten.  Asian is often a good alternative for non-dairy eaters.
