This week’s gluten-free meal plan uses fresh summer produce and helps you beat the heat with slow cooker and stove top meal ideas. And don’t miss the salad with refreshing watermelon or the pudding parfaits!
Although August is usually one of the hottest months of the year here, so far it has been surprisingly nice! I’ve been washing windows since I didn’t get to all of them before we moved in. I have a dilemma. Our house is a colonial and having grids in the windows is traditional. However, the grids are removable, and I enjoy the outside view much more without them. But then the windows look kind of naked. I don’t have any blinds on the windows – just curtains that I close at night. I’d love to hear what you think.
