My refrigerator took a turn for the worse Wednesday evening. However, tomorrow all should be well. The new parts have been delivered and the repair man will be here in the morning. Woo! I have a couple of repeats from last week on my menu due to the lovely fridge situation and some scheduling changes, but that just made it easier to plan this week.
This week I will be finishing prep for Thanksgiving, preparing and freezing items for the big day. I also have quite a bit of general house cleaning to tend to, and I need to keep plugging along on getting my blog all snazzy. Later this week I will be posting a gluten and dairy free green bean casserole with gluten free crispy onions, in case you have family members that just gotta have it for the holidays. I plan to participate in Slow Cooker Thursday posting pumpkin butter. Also, come back for Gluten Free-zer Friday and bring along a freezer recipe to share!
Check out Menu Plan Monday at the Organizing Junkie and see what is on everyone else’s plate. For only gluten free menus, see the Gluten Free Menu Swap hosted this week by the Lilac Kitchen. The theme ingredient is swede. And, yes, I had to look that up to find out what that was. It is a rutabaga, so I will pick one up and toss it into our stew this week.
