Update

Happy Monday afternoon!

I just wanted to give a quick update as to what I’m up to. The past couple weeks have been really full and during that time I’ve also done a lot of thinking about this blog.

What I Made Monday has veered off course from what I intended it to be.  My original plan was to make Mondays brighter and share projects I’ve been working on, or foods that I’ve made.

I wasn’t planning on having a food blog. Not that I wouldn’t post food and recipes, but just that the blog would consist of more than just that. I’ve been struggling with this discrepancy for a while now and I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with it.

I may change the tone of the blog to be more open, or I may just decide to roll with the whole food thing. What do you guys think?

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and week ahead! 🙂

Thoughts Of Thanksgiving

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I’m going to be finding recipes for our Thanksgiving meal plan. I’m so excited about it this year because I get to do a lot of the planning! Thus far I have a list of dishes, I just need to find some gluten-free options for certain things like rolls and pie crusts. I have a few ideas, but I’m not quite sure which ones we’ll be going with.

I do know that we’ll be having my breakfast casserole for breakfast and my garlic mashed potatoes and possibly autumn rice and acorn squash to go along with dinner. I was hoping to get a turkey this week to do a post for you, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Next year!

We’re going to my family’s this year. I haven’t been there in three years and my husband’s never been. I am so looking forward to it! A real family Thanksgiving!

Last year it was just the two of us, and I have to say, it was quite relaxing and wonderful, but I’m looking forward to spending this one back at home.

I think Thanksgiving is more about the gathering, being with the ones you love, and just celebrating everything that we have. When I was a kid, we just had our immediate family, but there were enough of us that it still constituted a group.

We might also have a dear woman over, who has been like a grandmother over the years. I love the idea of spreading the joy of Thanksgiving by sharing it with others!

Do you have a large group of family and/or friends for Thanksgiving? Or do you enjoy it being a smaller group of closer ones? Do you have any unique recipes or traditions? I’d love to hear from you!

Did you get a chance to check out my gluten-free yellow quinoa cake? If not, be sure to check it out! Scroll to the bottom for the recipe. I’d also love to connect with you on Facebook where I’ll be sharing smaller posts and we can interact more.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
