HAPPY HALLOWEEN MY FRIENDS!!

Just got a text from the hostess that she's got a stomach bug and the party is cancelled. And I had just come up with a relatively not lame idea for a costume. Oh well.... scratch that, just got another text, party has been relocated.

In other news, I put my car in for new tires today, so glad about that. I have been stressing over it for a while! I also got an oil change at the same time. Nice.

I went to stop & shop last night and instead of buying real food I bought white sugar, brown sugar and baking soda. Apparently I have some plans to bake things. I need to go to Good Health and try to find some xanthan gum. I've got to make those oreo cookies soon!! I started making a list yesterday of the foods my mom usually makes on Thanksgiving, what I can eat, what I can't eat, and have printed out a bunch of substitute/alternate recipes. My mom is supportive but the one thing she won't do is not stuff the turkey. It's a little frustrating but what can I do? She doesn't understand the concept of cross contamination and although she's good about some things, if it really infringes on her ways, she won't budge. Fine, I'll buy some turkey breasts and cook them the night before so have turkey. The vegetables are all safe, I'm going to bake a corn bread and some sort of apple pie/crisp. I'm determined to make it work and not cheat. I've been trying really hard!! I get better every day.

I'm off to my next appt with The Doc in about 10 minutes.

Enjoy your Halloween everyone!!!
