Sunday Treats

Max was being surprisingly good in church today. I started thinking about when I was a kid. After church every Sunday my mother took us to Dunkin Doughnuts. She would buy a dozen doughnuts and each of us would get to pick out our favorite. More than anything at that moment I wanted to be able to take him to a doughnut shop.

Instead I made a plan in my head. When we got home I pulled out my Bakin' Without Eggs cookbook and Max and I made Cinnamon Beignets. They were really good!

I told David later what I had thought about in church, Dunkin Doughnuts, wanting to take Max. He said he had similar thoughts. He wanted us to be able to go out as a family, to a restuarant or out for some kind of treat.

There is that maybe someday again.

Oh, I know. It is soooooo hard. Especially when you know they (and you) would enjoy it so much. Just think of how sweet it'll be when they find a cure for food allergies. Our kids will appreciate it so much more for having been deprived! That's what I like to imagine anyway.
