Hi friends! How are you this week? My week started out on Monday with a trip to the ER with my youngest (9). He fell at our local water park and gouged his knee pretty good. So good in fact that he needed nine stitches. Oy! He can’t really bend his knee at all so it definitely put a damper on doing any fun outdoor activities with Granny & Grandpa who were visiting. They made up for it though by playing at least a million and one card games :)
Yesterday I made some Gluten-Free Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes for my gluten, dairy and egg free son (15) and realized that I had originally posted the recipe on my blog in 2008 (!) and it desperately needed a picture upgrade. So I took some new pictures of them and updated my post if any of you are interested. Even my non-allergic family members love these!
Have a great week y’all!
My Weekly Menu Plan:
Monday: One Pan Lemon Herb Salmon & Zucchini
Tuesday: Steak Pineapple & Pepper Kebabs
Wednesday: Creamy Lemon Chicken with Asparagus and Mushrooms
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! and for me Garlic Honey Lime Shrimp
Saturday: Paleo Pancakes
