This week we're kicking cream cheese out of our house. Mr.C can't tolerate cow's dairy (I would love to see more goats dairy products!) and I don't do particularly well on it either, so this is really a no-brainer. Soy's not welcome around here either (sorry tofutti). Mysteriously this week we had 2 entries on the list that were cream cheese! One was from some Christmas baking I did, and the other has been in the fridge for probably a few months. I didn't look inside.

In other news, we've officially kicked off the "One-Week-Til'-We-Leave-Better-Eat-Everything-In-The-House-Extravaganza". The fridge is pretty bare already... We nearly had "taco's" for dinner last night that would have consisted only of:

corn tortillas
canned refried beans
sliced black olives

Fortunately for everyone involved we did a grocery store trip first. And yes, they were quite good thankyouverymuch! Just you wait til' What I Ate Wednesday... it's sure to be interesting!
