Homemade gluten free pumpkin pie with fresh raw whipped cream and locally made apple cider.

Welcome to December. This month sure snuck up on me! I just realized I completely forgot to do a November recap…or set any December goals. Be on the lookout for both in the next few days. I guess I was enjoying my long weekend so much that it didn’t even cross my mind. We did have a nice Thanksgiving weekend. It was great to have so much family time. And we had a fair amount of snow. So the kids got to play outside a lot.

Now it’s back to the usual chaos. This week we have church, Christmas program practice, chiro, grocery shopping, Kindermusik, milk pick up, a nursery committee meeting, dance, MomBreak, and Rebecca and I are going to see The Nutcracker. I hope I can stay sane this week.

The tooth fairy made her 6th appearance this week.

I was able to get some baking done last week (apple pie, pumpkin pie, two batches of graham crackers), but there is plenty more to do. I still have to make a batch of coconut free granola, a new batch of cheese crackers, soaked gluten free bars, muffins and mayo. Plus our usual smoothies and vegetable puree.

I finally started my Christmas shopping yesterday. I was able to get quite a few things. So maybe I’ll have time to start wrapping presents this week. And I need to start working on homemade gifts. We are also getting a bunch of ground beef this week. So I should do a good freezer clean out/inventory. I’ve needed to do it for quite a while.

Our Thanksgiving feast.

I’m still making progress with my health. I’ve been making sleep a priority and taking naps when I can. That really helps. I am also getting to the real root of my swelling, pain, major weight gain, etc. that I’ve experienced over the last 6 months. I’m very excited to be making progress on it. It will take time. But I’m on the right path. I will give more updates later…after I see some good results.

So now I can get my focus back to the food and nourishing my family 🙂  What’s on your menu? Eet smakelijk!
