A time of thanks!

I can't believe Thanksgiving week is already upon us!  Time is going by so fast, it's kind of depressing!  I have a busy week ahead.  I work Monday through Wednesday, Thursday I'll be having Thanksgiving dinner at my mother-in-laws and then immediately leaving for D.C.  Friday I have a manicure appointment, the wedding rehersal, and then the dinner.  Saturday is my cousin's big day! We'll get our hair done and then the festivities begin!  I'm so nervous!  I don't want to do anything to ruin the wedding!  I've only been a bridesmaid once before and it was a much more casual affair!  Wish me luck! 

So as for food I am continuing my gluten-free trial.  So far, so good.  I've had mishaps due to my improper checking of ingredients before eating but overall this week as been good.  I do think some of my problems are easing up so I'm going to keep at it for a few more weeks to be certain it's not coincidence.  This will be tough this week with Thanksgiving and travel though.  Anyhow here are some highlights of my meals this past week!

This is an experimental casserole because I didn't feel like going to the store.  It contains gluten free pasta, broccoli, non-fat yogurt, tomatillo sauce, leftover turkey, and montery jack cheese.  It was actually very, very tasty!

Chili with ground turkey.

Crockpot turkey with sweet potatoes.  Brown/wild rice on the side.  I loved the sweet potatos, my husband however thought they were the grossest thing he'd ever tasted!  I put them in the bottom, put the turkey on top, and then topped with butter and wine.  It gave them a strange savory taste that I liked and he hated.  Go figure!
