Menu Plan Monday – September 21, 2009
My laptop is in the shop (sob!) so I had to plan my menu on PAPER this weekend! gasp! Thank goodness we can use my parent’s computer, but, oh do I miss my laptop! It will be home in a week (waaaaay too long).
Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday. She has a link to cinnamon-apple pork chops that sound like something I need to make (use oil instead of butter to make dairy free). Yum! This week the Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Celiacs in the House. She has picked pumpkins for this week’s ingredient. I love pumpkin and all the winter squashes. Good thing I am planning on baking pumpkin cookies today, huh?
This week I am doing a bit of stocking up for the freezer. If I find any tweeking that needs to happen on the freezer recipes, I will alter them as I go along.
