Welcome to Slightly Indulgent Tuesday – I am sorry that some people didn’t know that day was moved. After some consideration and feedback from other people, I decided that Tuesday might work better for all involved.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Joe and I planned on traveling but one of our dogs was sick so we stayed home. We had a great time – Thanksgiving morning we ran jogged slowly in a 5k – the 42nd Annual Turkey Trot, had breakfast at IHop, and then came home and I cooked a fabulous gluten free, sugar free meal. It was so nice to be able to eat everything that was served and to not have to ask questions about what’s in the food. No one told me that I should at least take a few bites to please the cook, nor did anyone imply that I was just being difficult. Needless to say, we loved every minute of our holiday.
My submission for this week is a favorite of mine – green smoothies. If you haven’t seen my post yet, head over there and let me know what you think.
Last week we had some fabulous recipes, and since it’s cooled off I’ve been thinking I might want pancakes for breakfast, or even dinner. Naturally, I was happy to see Linda’s buckwheat pancake recipe. And, if you’re looking for a spin on gluten-free cornbread for Christmas you should take a peek at this sweet potato corm bread recipe.
I can’t wait to see all of your healthier recipes this week. When you link, please tell us who you are and what you’re cooking . For example, I would enter:
