My Gluten Free, Locavore-ish Weekly Meal Plan & 'What's Cookin' Sunday?'

Fall has definitely arrived. I woke up cold in the middle of the night last night and had to rummage in the dark for an extra blanket to help warm me up! 

With fall comes root veggies at the farmers market, so while I'll be sad to see some of the summer produce go I'm looking forward to more stews and baked dinners. 

This week's meal plan is still based around summer farmers market produce, but lunches and snacks involve a bit more baking than the last month's "too-hot-to-stand-in-the-kitchen" cooking.

Now let the meal planning BEGIN!

GF Apple Dumplings - last week's highlight!

As for last week's meal plan, I had a little bit of leftover pie dough from making GF Apple Dumplings and Shroom-less Vegetarian Pot Pie, so I used it up to make some Miniature Chocolate Pudding Pies which hubby was more than happy to gobble up! 

BeetRavioli - I just love this colour!!

This week if there’s leftover beets and I have some free time, I *may* make some Beet Ravioli which is so much fun to look at.
