This week is an eventful week in the life of the McClellan family. Today, my husband finished his time at his current job and on Monday we begin the process of moving our things to our new house and he begins his new job. However, the process will take about a month because the hubby is also in the home stretch of finishing out graduate school and we can’t officially move until his classes are completed.
I am also recovering from a small stress induced flare that hit me last Monday so I am attempting to limit my work load to allow more time for healing and stress management. That being said, I have continued to focus on simple meals and slow cooker meals. I am making a second attempt at baking the root vegetable biscuits from The Paleo Approach Cookbook this week because in my flaring state I didn’t feel well enough to make them last week.
I also get to have some cooking fun early in the week because I am celebrating one of my best friend’s birthday on Monday! We have been friends since we were 16 years old and I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to have her close by and celebrate special times together!
What is on your menu this week? Do you have any fun celebratory events on the horizon?

Hope you are feeling better soon. Thanks for the menu plans. They are very helpful.
I am so glad you are enjoying them! I am already feeling much better, it is truly amazing the difference there is in dealing with flares pre-AIP and with AIP. After just a few days of getting back on track, resting and managing my stress I was already feeling much better!
