With Dad #3

Of note: Baby Grady's cheeks are red, because this was before I discovered (with Granny J's help) that Grady doesn't like when I eat tomatoes. Well, it doesn't actually seem to bother him, but it does give him hives. And he's so much cuter without hives! But it turns out that, left to our own devices, we eat a fair amount of tomatoes. (Italian and Mexican cuisines dominate our quick-and/or-make-ahead repertoire.) So, any suggestions for quick and easy meals without tomatoes? Bonus points for things that can be made in quantities to provide multiple meals. Put them right down there in the comments, please!


  1. Do you have a slow cooker? I LOVE More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes Stephanie O'Dea (yes I did get that from Amazon!)
    Her recipes are gluten free as well........

  2. Both our boys broke out when they ate tomatoes...rashes on their cheeks, chins, arms, wherever it touched. They're both over it now. Hope you don't have to avoid them long, that sounds hard!

  3. Kate, I don't have a slow-cooker, but I often wonder whether I want one... thanks for the recommendation.

    And Carey, it must be a weird Carrier gene -- apparently Gregg used to break out if "Granny J" ate tomatoes. That's where I got the idea to eliminate them. No idea how long it'll last... I plan to test with a small amount before too long.
