Hi guys!

We wrapped up our last weekend of fall sports this past weekend so hopefully that means I’ll get some new recipes up now. Also? Those last 2 games were so stupid cold that I had 3 layers on and eventually wrapped myself in a blanket that I found in the back of the Jeep.

I mean, what’s the point of living in Texas if it’s going to be 27 degrees in November?

I’m not big on Thanksgiving recipes and would really like to skip right over to Christmas cookies but I do want to share this dessert that I’ve already made twice. We’re obsessed.

I make the same recipes for Thanksgiving dinner every single year but for some reason I like to try different dessert recipes. I don’t think I’ve ever made a traditional pumpkin pie. I made this last week and didn’t photograph it because I didn’t expect us to love it but it barely lasted a day in my house so I had to make it again!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherd’s Pie – layers of turkey, gravy, veggies, stuffing, and mashed potatoes! The perfect way to use those Thanksgiving leftovers!

You guys.

My kid looked at me yesterday morning and said, “Only 6 days of school left before Thanksgiving break!”

Wait, what?

I know we all say this every year but, seriously, how are we less than 2 weeks from Thanksgiving?! I swear it was just July.

Gluten Free Iced Orange Cookies - the perfect gluten free holiday cookie recipe! Tender cookies with orange zest and topped with a delicious sweet orange glaze.

We had parent teacher conferences last month and during one of them my blog came up and we started talking about how I do a lot of paleo stuff and the teacher mentioned that she and her husband are gluten free so when her students bring in homemade treats for her, she typically has to pass them on to other teachers.

And I don’t know if I’ve told you guys but I love all my kids’ teachers this year. I love them.

So obviously gluten free treats needed to be made for her.

I can’t even believe we’re weeks away Thanksgiving. You guys, how did this happen?!

I feel like I’m behind on planning everything – have you figured out your menu yet?

I forever have that problem where I have so many recipes I want to try but I also want to make all the holiday classics and there’s just not enough room on my table for everything and it’s just me and my 3 boys so it’s not like we need a ton of food.

I do have desserts figured out which, you know, is the most important part.

This post originally published on November 27, 2008. Wait. Have I really been blogging that long?! Anyway, I’ve updated the photos, the words, everything. Enjoy! 

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous. Didn’t leave my house at all.

Okay, well, I ended up at In-n-Out once but besides that, I only left for dog walks.

I spent Saturday binging on crime documentaries. You guys. Have you seen There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane? It’s a must watch but be warned: I sobbed through the last 20 minutes.

I also watched Who Took Johnny, Audrie and Daisy (another must watch – especially if you have teens), and I started The Staircase. If you’re also into these sorts of documentaries, please leave me suggestions! I’m obsessed right now.
