I’m walking 60 miles in the Breast Cancer 3-day!  Will you help me reach my goal?


I think the upcoming week is completely crazy…  Why, oh why, do the things for summer start before the things end at the end of the school year?  It’s nuts!  On top of that, I am not sure why I thought scheduling dental cleanings this week was a good idea…  hmmmm, maybe I am the nutty one.  I will be relying heavily on my menu plan this week and try to have most meals made before the kids get home so we can we dinner as a picnic at the various activities.  That worked pretty well last week.


Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  Sea of Book of Yum is the host for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap.  She has picked zucchini for the week.  I don’t have it in my garden yet, but we have planted the seeds.  Yum!


Be sure to join me on Friday for Gluten Free-zer Friday and next Monday when I am hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap.  I have chosen avocados for the theme ingredient.
