Well would you look at that…time is a flying by and this weekend coming up is already Canadian Thanksgiving! I guess I’d better get planning huh? I’m not too worried about it this year as obviously it will be a small one so we’re going to keep it pretty casual. For those of you who would like to do a little more planning ahead, you’ll be happy to know I FINALLY updated my Freezer Cooking Tutorials and Recipes page. If you’ve been wanting to do more freezer cooking or even learn how to do it, then hop on over and check out all the links.
And if you missed it and are interested, I posted the recipe for the Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free Chocolate Cake I made for my son’s 11th birthday last Friday. It was just awesome!
I love soups in fall and they are generally pretty quick to throw together, especially if you use your slow cooker. Last week we tried the Hearty Minestrone Soup recipe from Taste of Home and really enjoyed it. Soup and homemade bread, yum!
I love when my kitchen tools slave away for me all afternoon :)
I hope you all have a wonderfully organized and yummy week ahead of you!
