Menu Plan Monday – August 29, 2011
It’s the last week of summer vacation for our family, so we’ll be heading to the state fair, doing some canning and meeting teachers this week. Blah- I’m so bummed summer is done. I love having the kiddos at home! I’m going to miss my buddies during the day…
Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness is our host for the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week. She has picked tomatoes for the theme this week. Ya-hoo! Tomatoes are going crazy in my garden right now, so she is just in time. On Saturday I’ll be posting a recipe for tomato jam (Yum!) with canning labels to print off, so come back for those. Some of my favorite tomato recipes are BLT’s with avocado, home canned tomato sauce (especially with roasted garlic), and Slow Roasted Caramelized Tomatoes. What do you like to do with your tomatoes?
If you would like to host the Gluten Free Menu Swap, drop Cheryl a line at Gluten Free Goodness. She would love to hear from you!

I didn’t see any classes for you on the Lakewinds websites, are you going to be doing any soon?
They are cutting classes at Lakewinds due to how many have been canceled and lack of interest. I will be teaching 1 class at Lakewinds every 3 months. After the November holiday baking class (if that runs), the format will also be changing due to the need to run “free” classes (to compete with other stores), so classes will be vastly different than before.
Wow. I’m surprised they have had that little interest.
thanks for letting me know
They reduced all of the different classes because they just weren’t running. The gluten free was the most popular type of one, but over 2/3rds of the gf classes got canceled also, so I see their point. People do not want to pay for the classes is the biggest thing. They will be switching to a free format to compete with other store’s classes, but that does mean that the classes will have much less information than what was previously offered.
Your kids are so lucky to have you! Love the badge, and LOVE slow roasted tomatoes. Next year…
