Weekly Menu (9/23/12-9/29/12) and Some News

So, I have some good news and some bad news (for our family, at least).  My younger son can now tolerate soy.  We still limit soy in our diets.  Really the only soy we have is soy sauce, and even then I prefer using coconut nothing will change here on our blog for those of you that have soy allergies.  It's just nice having one less thing to worry about when we go out to eat.  The bad news is now I seem to have a sensitivity to corn.  The past couple of months I've been getting sick and I finally tracked it down to corn.  I don't appear to have issues with corn starch...but I'm working on eliminating it anyway, along with the rest of the corn sources.  For right now, my family will continue eating corn, just not me.

Total change of subject, but I need to tell you...I had the most fantastic ratatouille last week.  I used Julia Child's recipe, and it was as fantastic as I hoped it would be...go try it!

Now on to the weekly menu:
