This past week has been one of the longest weeks. It seems like the week got progressively worse as it went on. As I shared on Saturday, baby Wyatt lost his 44 day battle. Then, on Sunday, I received news that a friend lost her battle with breast cancer. She was only 40 years old. Another friend of mine, Karen, wrote a blog post that says it all very well.
We have a busy week coming up. Hockey is in full swing, that is on top of all of the other stuff, like Hannah’s gymnastics & skating. Also, my half marathon is this coming Sunday! I feel like I am ready & now I just want the day to be here! The weather forecast says chilly & dry. I’ll take that!
Cheryl from Gluten-free Goodness is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap and her chosen theme is apples! OOH!! I have been loving the Honeycrisps this year! One of my favorite breakfasts is cooking up a half of a Honeycrisp in the micro with cinnamon and then putting that on top of some gluten-free waffles with almond butter. So fall-like!! Here is one of my favorite apple recipes: Crockpot Applesauce .
Sunday – Find your own food night! LOL!
Monday – Spaghetti with marinara, roasted veggies & salad
Tuesday – Make your own Tacos, black beans & salad
Wednesday – Burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans & salad
