Can someone please tell me where 2014 went?? When I went to write the title of this post at first I wrote October instead of November! Oi! What a fast year!

These deliveries will be taking place in the morning starting around 8am.

Coconut Flour Pancakes

Our breakfasts for a long time now have generally been our banana pancakes , eggs, and bacon. Occasionally we will switch it up as we want or our supplies necessitate. Our youngest boy is now almost 11 months and he has been eating breakfast with us since he was about 8 months (he refused purees and got 6 teeth before he turned 8 months and then wanted the real deal). He doesn’t like eggs and too many bananas has been causing him trouble with going to the bathroom. So we needed to switch things up.

Basil Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Fall Veggies

Our weekly meal plans always include a full chicken. We usually roast it in the oven but occasionally will cook it in the slow cooker (generally in the summer since roasting a chicken for 1.5-2 hours is sometimes just too hot). As I was making our dinner today I thought to myself, ‘I should move north so I can roast meals 365 days a year!’ But Tom would never go for that – even if I guaranteed delicious meals daily.
