Meatloaf Monday

Let me start by telling you I love Meatloaf. Unfortunately, the way certain places make it I can't eat it. When I go out to eat there's a certain list I follow by. NO DAIRY. NO OILY FOOD. NO GREASY FOOD. NO SPICY FOOD. It's not because I'm on a diet or anything. I'm Lactose Intolerant, hence the NO DAIRY. Everything else just makes me sick and I feel completely gross afterwards. There are times where I'll eat some of these foods, but I'll eat them in moderation.

These past couple of years I started to cook and bake more. It's so hard tho, because there's a lot of foods I can't eat. Yes, I know there are a bunch of dairy free recipes out there. A lot of those recipes call for certain ingredients that I don't have locally. Also, some dairy free products or soy products still make me sick/bloated. So when I find a recipe where I don't have to go far to buy supplies, you bet your ass I'm going to make it.

There are quite a few dairy free/allergy free meatloaf recipes out there. I could just get a meatloaf recipe and take out all the spices and the dairy in it, but who knows how that'll taste. Switching out ingredients in a recipe to be dairy free products doesn't really work that well. I tried it. There tends to be certain a consistency and flavors missing, when you do that. I stumbled across Mama's Allergy Free Meatloaf from Epi-Family over on Pinterest.
It came out a lot better than I thought it would. Not, because it wasn't a good recipe. It was, because it was the first time made a meatloaf. Alex loved the meatloaf, he ate most of it. For me, I felt like it was missing something. I think it was just that the topping was a little too sweet. Other, than that it was super simple to make and it did taste good.

Not being able to eat certain foods, won't stop me from enjoying food. Especially, since I'm with someone who loves food and can eat anything. It does suck, when I have dinner at someone's home. Not, everyone is willing to make alterations or even ask if I want something else. There have been times where I just there and watch everyone else eat because there's nothing else to eat. It sucks, but oh well. That's why I always ask if people have certain allergies before I make anything and I hope you guys do the same. Lauren from Epi-Family has an Allergy-Friendly Chicken & Dumplings recipe I can't wait to try. I'll let you guys know when I make. xoxo Alyssa

New Facebook Cover Photo

I'm so loving my new Facebook cover photo. I've been wanting to make a new cover, but I never sat down to make one. At last I stopped putting it off and made this cover photo. It was super simple and you can make one yourself. Also you can make one for FREE! I don't know about you, but I love free things. Simply go to PicMonkey and make one. Just go to collage and they have four designs you can pick from for FB. Whichever collage you choose, you can add more squares to it if you think you need more pictures. It's that simple! Comment down below and let me know if you make one. I would love to see what you guys come up with. xoxo Alyssa. 

P.S. If you haven't stopped by the The Fox, the Bear, and the Crafter FB page you should check it and say hi or just like the page.
