It’s almost Christmas!!! Are you ready? I’m sure not.
Thankfully we don’t have as busy of a week as usual in terms of outings. But there is so much to do at home. We already start celebrating this weekend and will have family over. I’m not done with my shopping and haven’t even started wrapping.
So this week will be shop for presents, shop for food, wrap, clean and bake. We are also getting our 1/4 cow this week. At least I managed to get the freezers cleaned over the weekend to make room for that. It will be so nice to have a supply of beef again!
Last week we introduced green beans for my son. So far so good. That means we are moving on. He requested grapes this week. It will be quite a treat for me if I’m able to give my child raisins again!
Yesterday my son and I made a batch of gf df gingerbread cookies. That will be our Christmas cookie for this year. Now I just have to figure out what other Christmas treats I’m making. I’m trying to keep it minimal since my kids don’t need any extra sugar. I’m also trying to make sure most of our grains are properly prepared…which is hard do with desserts.
I also need to make granola bars. I’m going to try creating a soaked version. I have to make a bit of vanilla frosting for my daughter to use at school when they decorate cookies. If time allows I’d like to try making noodles as well.
If you want to keep up with our regular health updates and my latest research be sure to follow me on Facebook. I’ve been learning a lot lately!
This week I’ve got some delicious treats and last minute Christmas gifts on the blog. Don’t miss them.
My menu this week is has been tricky since I don’t have a lot of time to cook and we don’t have much meat in the house. It’s also very challenging that there are no noodles, rice, etc. that my son can eat. And he won’t eat quinoa or potatoes no matter how hard we try. So making a meal for all of us is tricky. Here is what I’m thinking for now. What’s on your menu?
