Pink Thoughts

Every Thursday on my blog I will be sharing pink thoughts in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This was not my original idea but belongs to the blog thoughts of Everyday Possiblities. Check out my blog list in the margin.
I purchased this spatula because I love buying pink things that support this cause. Today it hit me that this was my pink thing. For a few years now I have struggled with food allergies that developed during menopause. One of them is gluten intolerance. I used to love to cook and bake my own bread and cookies get the picture. Discouragement has plagued me as I've struggled to bake with alternative flours, etc. More than once, I've found myself in tears in the kitchen. Then there's the guilt that I don't cook for my husband the way I used to. Today I decided to give it another try. I baked a loaf of GF bread and have pumpkin muffins in the oven. Not sure how they are going to taste, but I've given it a good try. Not ready to give up yet.
Kudos to my pink spatula!

Grace, I'm so pleased that you are taking part in the Pink Thoughts that I discovered through Soul Aperture...the more of us that band together and think about breast cancer awareness there is the possibility that one day this disease will no longer have such a hold on our lives (both men and women).

Love your pink spatula and here's hoping that it will do the trick in making your baked goods really taste good with their gluten free goodness.

Menopause certainly does a number on us doesn't it? My skin itches at times to distraction, my body digests food differently than it ever did before...these are the trials that are sent to test us...but we keep our spirits up and as you've just said, you are "not ready to give up yet." Amen to that!! ♥
