Weekly Menu Plan & a Winner

Welcome to November! I can’t believe that 2010 is almost over! Seriously, wasn’t it just January? Halloween this year was much colder than last year. Jon decided to hand out candy, so he stayed back. Hannah bundled up and we headed out with my God daughter, Emma. We only made it through 2/3 of the neighborhood before both my friend and I declared it too cold to make the complete rounds. We were back inside and found we had only been out 45 minutes. BRRR!! My toes were frozen! Even with the shortened duration, plenty of candy was collected. Due to the festivities, we opted for Pei Wei take out last night. A little Pei Wei Spicy Shrimp warmed me right up!

The rest of the week is chock full of activities & anniversary celebrations. Aaron and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary on Thursday. :)

Sunday – Pei Wei/ToTing

Monday – Shrimp Scampi with gluten-free pasta, broccoli & salad

Tuesday – Burritos, corn & salad

Wednesday – Bison burgers, sweet potato puffs, zucchini & salad

Thursday – Grilled chicken, basmati brown rice, green beans & salad

    Hi Kim–I've been reading your site for months now and I want to thank you for all the info you continue to share with all of us! I have a 2 questions though. Which chocolates really are OK to eat? And so many the of GF foods (especially at Trader Joe's) have no gluten but are processed on machinery or plants that could be contaminated like potato chips and even salsa. Should we trust them?? Linda

    Thanks, Cheryl!

    Linda – Dagoba Chocolate & Endangered Species are both labeled gluten-free. Some of Hershey's products are GF – full size Hershey bars, Hershey's kisses and Reese's Cups to name a few. Beware of different sizes & shapes, though, as they may have different ingredients. I just saw some holiday bell shaped Reese's last night with wheat flour in them. As far as products made in plants where other products with gluten are made, that is up to the individual. I personally have never had any issues with Trader Joe's GF products, but I have read that others have.
