I suck! I took Aubree to the Dr yesterday because her flare-up wasn't getting better it seemed to be getting worse. Her flare-up was from her getting a hold of pizza about 2 weeks ago. So we were thinking she is probably developing a Soy allergy too. We put her on Rice milk and vitamins. So this morning while getting everyone breakfast, Justin happened to glance at the cereal before giving it to Aubree and noticed it contained milk! UGH! I swear we have checked that label several times, so now we are confused if we bought the wrong brand or what. I had been giving her the Cinnimon Toasters almost every day! It was her favorite, she would ask for it (at 13 months thats a big deal). This is what happens when I try to rush through the grocery store with 3 grumpy kids and dont check every label, just trusting that they kept the formulation the same. I did the same thing with the Grandma Sycamore's bread. Guess from now on I need to go grocery shopping with another person or find a sitter so I can have the time to check every label in the store! :-/
On the brighter side, at least I don't have to take soy out of her/our diet. If I hod to do that, there would be almost nothing I could buy for quick dinners. I would have to make everything from complete scratch! And with a 5 year old, 26 month old, 13 month old and a husband who can rarely be home for dinner and works 6 days a week, just the thought makes me crazy!
Here's hoping she now gets better soon!

Start by boiling 3-4 chicken breasts for 20 min. While that's going add about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of your soup pot. Chop and add about 2 cups each onion, celery, and carrots. Add 1 clove minced garlic to your oil and add the veggies. Cook till tender. Then add 4 cups of water and 4 cans Kroger brand chicken broth (most other brands contain dairy so check yours). Bring to a boil and cook your noodles in the soup. I prefer egg noodles but any will work. Shred your chicken when it's done and add it to the soup. Then salt and pepper to taste and a dash of Ginger not only for flavor but it's really good to help anyone not feeling well to get better! Next, enjoy!!
