Everyone is finally well at our house, and I am finally getting a tiny bit caught up from the extras that can’t happen when you need to snuggle sick kiddos.  And I have some great new mittens, a fab kettle dyed merino that is dark red with bits of mauve and burgundy that I have knit in self defense to keep my 13 year old son from “borrowing” them.  Ha!  Cozy hands for me!  


Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday and see what will be on everyone else’s plate this week. The Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted this week by  Asparagus Thin.

Other things to do this week:  Help oldest daughter bake off the last of her experiment and finish science fair board, put in 15 hours data entry work, prep for up coming class and the gluten free roundup, work on recipe linking for blog (maybe I can get that finished sometime, huh?  Slow and steady wins the race, right?), bake off Iron Cupcake entry, and Daring Baker challenge…  Also need to work on next e-book, order seeds for garden, set up area for seed starting, cut fabric for cloth napkins, make coconut yogurt, and send out fund raising letters for 3 day walk…   Woo!
