I didn’t get this post out on Monday, obviously, but I will still be linking up today ‘cause I don’t want to miss out on the fun.  I was prepping for a class on gluten free mixes, so that took priority.  I do like teaching classes!  I meet some really wonderful people and get to cook and eat.  What could be better?  For the lovely people who have taken my classes, I will make a big effort over the next week to get my recipe links page together.  Please be patient with me.  I do have 3 little cuties and a big cutie (and Girl Scouts, and work, and library volunteer, and church, and church volunteer, and dogs, and fish, and did I mention those cuties?, and SLEEP, etc.) that takes my time up also…  Trust me, if I could skip the whole work thing and just plan food and menus to help others out all the time, that would be my dream job and LOTS of fun for me, too!  But it is true, I do need to make the time commitment just to get those recipes linked to make things easier to find for all of us.  Thanks for getting me going on that!!

Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday and check out the INSANE number of menus!  If you are needing gluten free menus only, head over to Gluten Free Sox Fan.  She is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  The ingredient of the week is cornmeal.

Stop back on Friday for Freezer Friday when I will be showing how I freeze up portions for myself and my hubby for lunches and dinners so we can eat healthier, cheaper, and safer (gluten and dairy free wise) when we head off to work.

Tomorrow I will be blogging on the types of pans I use and why.  That subject came up in my class last night, and I would like to expand a bit on the subject in case anyone else needs information in that area.  And, just so you know, you DO NOT have to toss everything out, so don’t be scared!

Monday: Mommy teaches, so Grandma is cooking!  Baseball practice night:

        Applegate Farms Uncured Hotdogs, Alexia Waffle Fries and a salad with mango slices, so I can pretend it’s a healthy meal!

Tuesday:  Piano lesson night: 

        Citris-Kissed Chicken Tenders (I also have these chicky nugget recipes), apple slices, mango chutney dip, green beans (full length, lightly blanched, then chilled so you can eat them with your fingers)

Wednesday:  Mommy works 10 hours, dress rehearsal for big kiddos (for church skit – the story of Joseph with a Star Wars theme!  Ha, ha, ha!)

       Slow Cooker Turkey Cutlet in Mango Salsa (from the Crockpot Lady, who got it done with pork from Karinand salad with lots o’fixin’s.

        Check out Stephanie’s (the Crockpot Lady) blog!  She is using her crockpot EVERY DAY this year and posting about it.  She uses all gluten free ingredients as they need to for their household.  I have been banned from reading her blog on my laptop at night in bed – apparently my giggling wakes up my husband – wimp!

Thursday: Mom’s Bible study small group, Girl Scout meeting night:

        Slow Cooking Thursday:  Ground Beef and Bean StewCorn Bread, Guacamole, Mixed salad Greens

Friday: Mom works 5 hours, family fun night at church (my big kids are in the skit):
