Holidays suck in one way....all the goodies that are made and passed around. They are difficult to pass up however I see one allergy in my life as a blessing in disguise. I'm intolerant to wheat. That takes out at least 75% of the foods and almost all the desserts at a potluck that I might be able to eat. The only problem with that is....if I choose to eat from the "buffet" and the maker of the dish can't remember if they put any flour in it, I get to either chance it or pass it. If I chance it, I may end up sick the next day so most times I choose to pass.
There is one exception. If my co-worker makes something that is okay for me to eat, I'll gladly eat it. Today my lovely co worker brought in stuff for pulled chicken tacos. Her pulled chicken taco meat is absolutely yummy and totally wheat/gluten free! I can make a bowl of pulled chicken with all the toppings I want like cheese, sour cream, onions, salsa, guacamole, cilantro, etc and actually eat it. That's kinda nice. :) Gotta stay away from the dessert table though....waaaaaay too much wheat there.
In other news, I'm so freakin tired from all the running around and baking for Christmas! I'm ready for it to be over but my 6 year old obviously doesn't want the same. LOL. Tomorrow morning I'll get up, watch my son open his presents, bake some red velvet cupcakes for a friend (maybe) and then get ready to go to work. Yes...I have to work on Christmas Day. After that though, I have THREE lovely luxurious days off to sleep! Good thing too, I need it.
Oh....and my coworkers LOVED the cookies I made them. They said they looked so pretty they didn't want to eat them. LOL.....they are all gone anyway.
