So you might have thought after my all-day Sunday baking day that I was finished, right? WRONG! Yesterday I made a gluten-free Pumpkin Pie for my hubby (his fave) and Pineapple Meatloaf (another household staple) for dinner. I also made the gingerbread for the Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle
I will be making for Christmas Eve.
I am also responsible for the Christmas Eve dinner since it is at my house. The menu will be Chicken Tortilla Soup and Tamales! Plus for Christmas Day I am making my traditional Raw Broccoli Salad and a 5-cup Fruit Salad to take to my Mom’s. Okay…now calm down, all of those recipes will be coming in the next few days, but for now let’s stick with the Pumpkin Pie and the Pineapple Meatloaf, shall we?
