I'm making a pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins right now. It smells so good in here.

In the morning I'll make the sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course start the turkey.

I feel like I've been in the kitchen all day. I made turkey jo's and turkey chili this morning to freeze, and I made dinner for tonight. The girls were really concerned about what we were going to eat next week. I think they might be afraid of their dad's cooking. He said he could grill and I could talk him through the rest. He's actually a pretty good cook.

I'm cleaning and doing laundry while cooking.

I'll rest next week.

It sounds delicious! How long does your DH get to stay home with you?

He'll be home for 6 days after my surgery.

Dinner was delicious! I'm really impressed with my pumpkin pie. You just never know with homemade gluten free crust. lol

I'm glad he'll be there for you!

And I hope that after he returns to work; you have a sitter for Abbey, when your other two are in school. You are going to want to rest. Even if it's just laying around watching a movie.

For your gluten-free crust; what type of flour do you use? Rice or almond? Or can I just have your recipe?

I'm glad he'll be here too. Hopefully I'll feel so great he wont have to help me. That way he will have a little vacation. I can hope, right?

Abby is in K all day, so I will get a break next week while they're at school. This week the girls only have school today and tomorrow. My inlaws are having them stay over Wednesday night, and whenever we need them. My parents offered to have them overnight this weekend. We're just playing it by ear.

For the pie crust, last year I used brown rice flour and it was good. This year I used a different recipe and a gf multi purpose flour. It was really good. I followed the recipe but not the instructions though. They seemed to involved for me.

1/2 cup unsalted butter or solid, all vegetable non-dairy shortening (I used shortening)
2 to 4 tbsp cold water (I started with 2 and added until it was the consistency I wanted.)
1 1/4 c gf flour
1 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp sugar

How I prepared it..

I put the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl and mixed them together. Then I cut the shortening into the flour mixutre with a pastry blender. Added the water. Kept blending with the pastry blender. Then I greased a 9" pie pan with margarine. I put a little brown rice flour on the counter, rolled the ball of dough around in it. Then I put the down in the pie plate and pressed it out (instead of rolling it.) Easy and it worked!

If you want the original directions just let me know. I just didn't feel like rolling, using contact paper, and more contact paper, and more rolling, and freezing, and refrigerating, and all of that jazz.
