That being said, Shannon's been on a diet of sorts for the past couple months. High cholesterol runs in his family, and when he last got bloodwork done they wanted to put him on medication. He asked for a few months to try to get it under control with diet and exercise. So, diet it's been. Less cheese, less butter, less sweets, and I'm working on expanding my gluten-free repertoire, because I think we'll try a gluten-free diet for a month this fall and see if it helps some of his stomach problems. That being said, he's going to be gone for a whole week. Which means we'll be enjoying some things I haven't been making much of:
And maybe we'll eat a bit extra ice cream. I've also been trying to cut back on the junk food so that Shannon's not "suffering" alone (but believe me, he's not suffering. We did have enchiladas for dinner yesterday), and I've been missing some foods! Is it bad that I'm looking forward to him being gone so I can eat more?
