What's for dinner?

This is the most elusive question that happens every night in homes across the world. I know it's something that I think about constantly. Anyone with food allergies knows that this is taken to a whole 'nother level. I have to plan a main meal, then I have to figure out if A can eat anything that we are having. A's allergies consist of milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts, so every time I make something I'm running the ingredients through my head. I've become a pro at reading the ingredients lists on prepackaged foods at the grocery store. I've learned to substitute soy milk and soy butter into our normal meals. Nobody knows that I make pancakes with soy milk. Nobody knows that my delicious homemade banana bread is made with soy butter. I am the master of disguise. I've begun pinning dairy-free recipes so I can offer some better alternatives for our meals and her snacks.

So now after all this talk about food allergies, I'm still trying to figure out ... what's for dinner?!
