my patronus is a basilisk

I have acquired the materials to make all the gluten-free things, most important sandwich bread, because this house will not function without grilled cheese sandwiches unless ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. (I really really hope the potential food issue we're chasing down doesn't involve dairy, or at least not in a way that affects medium cheeses.) My pinterest is now basically nothing but gluten free recipes and acrylic pouring technique videos.

I was planning to do both gluten-free and Anti-Inflammatory/Mediterranean diet but I'm not convinced I can pull that off; I expect to be devoting a couple hours a day to cooking/baking as it is. Bleah.

It's only for a month, though. I mean, unless at the end of the month it becomes clear gluten is the problem, in which case it becomes forever for the house and I will be eating proper real bread sandwiches at restaurants where the children are not present at every opportunity.

The next four days has the much smaller (and yet difficult) goal of no fast food and reduced sugar before we transition into gluten-free land. I have bought a footlocker and padlock where pretty much all desserts and sugar are going to live for the foreseeable future, because I have now caught the children not just sneaking treats but full eating eating straight sugar.
