Welcome back to Menu Plan Monday and Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!! I hope you all have a wonderful week that is all about family and friends and not about chaos and stress. To help you keep on track with what you’ll be buying, making and serving, look what I found for you to print and use if you haven’t already got something in place.

This past week my oldest son (14) and I set out to make some gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free sugar cut-out cookies. Well two batches later we still weren’t 100% satisfied. One batch we used straight margarine and they turned out too crumbly so the second batch we used 1/2 margarine, 1/2 lard and they weren’t bad but I still think they could be better.
We will keep trying though for sure. The only thing holding us back is we ran out of one of the flour ingredients we use to make his gluten-free flour blend, specifically the sweet rice flour. We can’t buy it in the small town we live in and haven’t been able to make it in to the city unfortunately. I’ve been searching for an online source here in Canada without any luck. Amazon.ca does have some but it is ridiculously overpriced. So we are on pause until we can get to the city but hopefully that won’t be too much longer, we just need the weather to cooperate with us as it’s a two hour drive away and we’ve been getting quite a bit of snow already.
My youngest son’s 8th birthday was a huge hit on Friday. It ended up being a snow day from school so we invited over a bunch of friends and they hung out with us the whole day. He loves being around people so he was super happy. He was also pretty happy with his chocolate cupcakes on chocolate cake birthday cake that he had asked for. It wasn’t the prettiest but it tasted pretty good :)
