Weekender on Emily's Allergies

Memorial Day weekend oh how I love you and so does Emily. We had a very nice weekend Friday we spent time in Queens with old friends Saturday we headed over to BoBoos (my mothers) house Sunday went to a family barbeque. They even prepared Allergy friendly dishes for Emily :) after the BBQ we headed to see Jen from Tasty Memories and Jen Eats Life to film and make Pizza's on the Grill it was a first time for me preparing them that way. There was no cheese Just veggies tomato, sweet red peppers, onions and cauliflower nothing that would trigger her food allergies (dairy, eggs or nuts).The sauce Jen made was superb. Made a simple dough of flour, water and yeast. Emily loved rolling the dough and beating it. She was such a good little helper. The pizza came out spectacular and Emily LOVED!! it. Can't wait to show the vlog and future collaborations. Monday we went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. That movie was awesome saw it in IMAX and Princess was blown away. She wants a baby panda now :) so DaDa has to get one.

Jen Eats Life and Emily's Allergies

Emily's Allergies Thusday Dinner.

So first off I have to apologize for no post last week on Emily's Allergies. Had some technical difficulties with an SD card and the pics where lost :-( So I'll still fill you in on how we went to see the Gazillion Bubble Show (Princess loved it). It's fun for the whole family. Make sure you pick up some of there bubbles after the show also or your little ones will keep you up all night crying for them. So this week for our Thursday dinner I took Emily to Curly's Vegetarian Lunch. This place is amazing! you can draw on napkins as you wait for your order thanks to the complementary cup of crayons and if your art is good enough it gets posted on the walls for all to see. Emily loved that part you can see how concentrated she was. I asked her what she wanted to eat she couldn't decide. So Dada picked out Soy chicken tenders and curly fries. I ordered the Pop 400 million wrap. This thing is awesome filled with beans, organic brown rice, pico de gallo, cheese and sour cream wrapped in a wheat tortilla. Emily loved her tenders and fries the barbecue sauce that came with it was a little pica (Spicy) for princess so she stuck to "Katsup". Curly's also gets their desserts from Vegan Treats. So we got a slice of Strawberry Shortcake. OK sorry I didn't get a good pic of the cake but rite when it hit the table Emily yells "Tank yew" to the waitress and digs in. I could not stop her. It was a massacre on a mass scale. Poor cake :( It sure was good though.

Food Allergy Awareness Week

From May 8th through May 14th is Food Allergy Awareness Week. So spread the word about food allergies any way you can. I'm thinking of a way that me and princess can spread the word.

Emily wants Broccoli in hers please!!

Last week Wednesday I asked the Twitterverse where should I take Princess tomorrow for dinner? I was answered by Tamara Wudinich who runs the blog Serendipindots if Emily Likes Mac n' Cheese. She heard of S'Mac in NY and that it was a good Food Allergy friendly place. I have heard of S'mac before and even tasted some of their Mac n' Cheese at a street fair a long time ago. So the decision was made. My co worker and good friend Kim who runs the site Virago Inc. (This one is for the grown ups;) One of the many people who kidnap my princess whenever I bring her into the office treated me and Emily to S'mac once I told her about the place. We stopped to get some Vegan Chocolate cake before getting to S'mac.  I asked princess what she wanted in her Mac n' Cheese and gave her the choices of hamburger meat, broccoli or chicken to go in her vegan noch size pan of mac n' cheese. She chose the Broccoli. I love that she loves it as much as I do. Kim got vegan mac n' cheese with Spinach and Garlic and I got American and cheddar cheese with broccoli and mushrooms. You have to be careful the pans they bring out your orders in are very HOT! So let them cool a bit before digging in. Emily Loved her order but then saw the "Ketsup" sitting on the table and wanted some on hers. I put a tiny bit at first to see how she would like it. Of course she loved it and made me put it on the whole thing. After eating this Delish! Mac n Cheese Dinner it was time for Cake! I must say this cake was a little sweeter than the other one we had before. Emily went through it like no tomorrow afterwards Jetting out of S'mac! She was on a sugar rush running and climbing every set of steps spinning and jumping. It was toddler Parkour.

Emily's Allergies Chocolate Bliss

OK so every weekend I have with princess is always a great one. We had a great time at my my mothers (booboos) house for her Birthday. Ate until we all dropped, But the highlight of the weekend for Emily was Death by Chocolate Cake! I have had my fair share of chocolate cakes but nothing like this. We went to Atlas Cafe. A vegan and non vegan hole in the wall Mecca. They get there desserts from Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA. A co worker of mine put me on to them and Atlas Cafe. So I had to share this with Princess. I ordered a Vegan Philly Cheese Steak and a piece of Death by Chocolate Cake. Emily went straight for the cake :) I have to admit I was skeptical at first thinking how could something be soooooo god and vegan. So watching Emily indulge herself in this chocolate paradise looking at her face waiting for her to break out from an Allergic reaction. Nothing happened thankfully she ate some sandwich also but was more into the cake. They have a variety of treats from Strawberry Shortcake to Coconut Cake :) I recommend Atlas Cafe to anyone for a good meal (vegan or not) and make sure you save room for Desert! Princess always has room.
