Dinner Menu V (with special diet weekend!)

  The Original Mr H, that is to say Mr H's Dad, came from Washington to visit us for the Memorial Day weekend!

What a joy this has been for both Mr H and I, and most especially for Mr H as he spends time with his dad.  He has been looking forward to this with great anticipation, and has not been disappointed in the least! 

It's been hot, so all weekend long we've been enjoying iced tea! 
The Original Mr H has left dairy products, eggs, and cane sugar completely out of his diet in the interest of health, as recommended by his naturopath after some blood tests revealed sensitivities to casein, et cetera.  The Original has experienced a wonderful rejuvenation of energy and a significant absence of joint pain after adopting this new diet; so the meals we planned and prepared this weekend naturally reflected those dietary changes!  The Original arrived on Friday morning, so meals after that point (until his departure on the following Tuesday) will be dairy, egg, and sugar free.

The Original took us out for dinner at a local restaurant - such a treat!!
The Original had fish 'n chips.  Mr H had a burger.  I had an appetizer (potato latkes) and a milkshake! 

A true Italian pizza is so simple to make, and so very good for your body!
A traditional pizza would most likely have none, or very little, cheese on it...
Although as you can see, I added some Parmesan and cheddar here!

It's easy to make dumplings/wontons/money bags!
Looking forward to another week!
Mrs H
