December 23, 2011
So in a couple days everything will be done and dusted. By Sunday, all that will be left to do is cook it, eat it and open it! I love Christmas. I always have, and I hope that I always will.
Over the month of December I've tried to aid you in your search for all the festive Food Allergy
Free alternatives that are available 'out there'. I hope that it's been of SOME help anyway.
I'm signing off now until after the holidays so I wish you a very very Merry Christmas, or Happy Holiday, or however you like to phrase it :) ... In the mean time, see below for some christmas crafts, last minute gifts, festive recipes, ways to entertain children, some general holiday food allergy reading and of course, my favourite, a little bit of eye candy.
Have a great one, don't drink and drive, don't eat too much and by all means STAY AWAY from your food allergens/intolerances.. it's never worth it!
With love, Aurea x
