Freezer cooking this week:  I’ll be working on my Christmas baking a bit at a time and stashing it in the freezer for the holiday.  I’ll also be putting Bison and Sweet Potato Stew in the Slow Cooker and Pumpkin Waffles in the freezer for another day.

The week’s breakfast options:  I have been experimenting with some high-potein breakfast options (with and without eggs), so will keep experimenting with these.
The week’s lunch options:  Nut or seed butter sandwiches (on banana bread or gluten free Amish Friendship Bread), Salmon & Sweet Potato Cakes, hard boiled eggs, various fruit, and veggie sticks.
