Each week I keep saying, “Oh, the next week which will easier.” Who am I kidding!?! Even though we’re home during the day almost all week, we have commitments every night. It’s just the way it is with 5 kids. And a husband. And me.
My goal for this week is to make gluten-free sides for me, plus do more cookie baking. I mixed up sugar cookie dough over the weekend, and my husband did his own baking – snowballs and jam-filled cookies. I’ll be posting updates about my gluten-free cooking on the Frugal Local Kitchen Facebook page, including the results of a leftover experiment involving spinach cream soup, stewed tomatoes, and brown rice.
Since the kids have asked me to make a Yule Log for Christmas, I’m researching gluten-free recipes. I have a few collected on the Holiday Baking and Making board on my Pinterest page. I’m hoping to find something really close to my regular sponge recipe.
