Sunday Night glutino Gluten-free Pizza and Football

My family’s favorite pizza dough is glutino Pizza Crust Mix. It’s Gluten-free, wheat-free, kosher and we make it dairy-free also. My daughter is allergic to wheat and dairy and I’m also allergic to dairy so glutino pizza is perfect for us.  I’ve made the dough several times now and it takes some getting used to….

How did I get here I ask myself Just like everything else did A sequence of events Stringed together like pearls One after another Snuggly fit in a line The end remains open For the next pearl to fit Uncertain and open-ended A depiction of time Photo By Flickr.com user “tanakawho” [CC BY 2.0], via…

the Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

My Review: In The Soul of an Octopus, Sy Montgomery eloquently describes her intimate relationships with octopuses during her time at the New England Aquarium.  This book is truly like no other book I have ever read.

I’ve accepted that embarrassment is just a part of parenting.
