|little heart shaped ham|
-made another w star shapes too :)
I reasoned with myself;
It is late, he needs to sleep.
It's late but he probably won't sleep soon because of the late nap he took.
It is Saturday...
Is he hungry? I don't want him going to bed hungry.
I don't want him to go to sleep "dreaming" about pizza that he thinks he's never had.
So you see, I gave in, I made him my own version of pizza last night. I took all that I had and crossed my fingers hoping it would turn out good. I had King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour that you heard about in a previous post and can enter to win by the way, which worked so well!! I mixed it with all that I could think of that might work well and egg replacer, xanthum gum, and a pinch of salt. With my experience with wheat free gluten free flours it is near impossible, plain difficult to knead, but I was surprisingly able to with this new mix. I made it on the pan, so as I said it is my own fast version of "pizza." Again I stress a version of pizza, as it has no wheat, no cheese, not your everyday "pizza."
Main goal was to make something that tasted good and looked like pizza to hold him up for the night, and really to make my son happy. He was ecstatic, he hugged me after every bite as he sat there holding it in excitement. He knows it is different and doesn't have stretchy white stuff (cheese) or that it wasn't ordered from a pizzeria, all that he is familiar with, but he was happy. I was in tears from the excitement he showed me towards something so simple as that. And so that's why I do what I do, and always will, he is my world! :) My little boy, I will try my very best to make sure he is never left out. Even I will never understand how it is to grow up not being able to eat food everyone eats, and having to consider so much that everyone eats and enjoys as basically poisonous. Here are some pics I managed to take in my late night "cooking adventure," as my little boy calls it. Oh and he also said that I made him pizza that is "not allergy to him" with "mommy love magic"... ~❤~❤~❤~ He is so right!! ~❤~❤~❤~
