My Easy Eggrolls

At our house, it's near impossible to find something The Mister, Boo, and I can all sit down and eat together.  To accommodate for all our particular lifestyle choices and allergies, we need a meal free of: sesame, soy, lentil, peanut, most tree nuts, dairy, rice, meat, and seafood.  Add to that my goal to not serve my family foods containing high-fructose corn syrup or trans fats, and there aren't a lot of conventional foods left for us.

I was having a great day yesterday.  It was warm and sunny.  The kids were being unusually pleasant.  And as Boo sat and munched on his lunch of homemade zucchini muffins, I suddenly made the decision to feed Punky some prunes.

One-handed Tortilla Soup

I admit I'm on a bit of a soup kick.  I made this recipe up, which might be obvious if you are at all familiar with authentic tortilla soup.  I had tortilla soup once, in Mexico, about 10 years ago.  And I think it had chicken in it, which I no longer eat.  So maybe it's not the real deal.  But is it not a hot liquid you eat with a spoon?  Does it not contain tortilla chips?  OK, then.
