Day 1 of Thanksgiving Week!!

Hey Everyone!!

I am so excited that Thanksgiving is only 3 days away!! I love the baking, cooking, the smells, and the company. We will have the farmhouse full this year as there will be 20 of us cramed in. Having a big family is great... except when it comes to a holiday meal. We will have enough room though, thankfully there are a bunch of small kids so they don't take up much room!

This year we will be celebrating on Friday afternoon, as most of my brothers go to their in-laws on Thanksgiving day. I will be at my boyfriends house for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. Their family is very health concious and I was asked to bring a gluten-free, dairy-free... and if possible a sugar-free pumpkin pie. This is the main challenge for the week... trying to figure out how to make pumpkin pie with no gluten, no dairy, and no sugar..... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! I have some ideas, but will be posting final results later in the week so stay tuned!!

I have been loving the weather, hopefully it stays nice so we can let the kids play outside after Thanksgiving dinner!

  1. I love holidays too, even though my family is small we still get to have a good time. The only little kid in my family is my niece so she gets all the attention from the family. You got a big challenge a head. The first time I tried gluten free carrot cake, I did not even notice the difference. It was very tasty.
