What a week. We're back from celebrating Christmas with Frog Prince's family, and we had a wonderful time. We hope all of you had a great time celebrating the birth of our Savior.
My Mother-in-Law and I did some yummy baking/cooking in her kitchen, and I can't wait to post some gluten-free recipes in the next couple of weeks. Most of our meals while gone for the holiday were meat and potatoes -- a real change from what we typically eat at home. But, along with the meat and potatoes, we also enjoyed:
Christmas Eve Roast
Gluten-Free Banana Bread
Yum - o.
It was a tasty week.
It was a tasty week.
This week, we're trying to clean out the freezer a bit, and make some make-ahead meals so that we're able to be ready for the start of a new semester just after the new year. We're back to work through Wednesday before Frog Prince has more time off at the end of the week. Frog Prince has a major deadline on Tuesday evening, and I hope to get one more paper finished up before the New Year; thus, Monday and Tuesday meals are going to be easy to prepare to help us finish these projects.
We will be ringing in the New Year with some of our all-time favorite treats (see menu for Thursday/Friday):
