Gluten-Free Wednesdays 8/25/10
It’s that time of year. School has started for us. My oldest son is in college, but living at home. I home school my two youngest boys who are in 9th and 11th grades. Thankfully, they are pretty independent, and several of their courses are co-op classes which meet once a week through our support group.
I have to admit, though, that sometimes when life is busy, I want to give up blogging. Sometimes it becomes something I have to do rather than something I want to do. Then I receive a comment or better yet, an email, from a reader who takes a minute to say thanks. It makes my day and keeps me going.
Another thing that keeps me going is this blog carnival. I look forward to your comments and your links. Last week I started using my StumbleUpon toolbar more, and I tried to stumble all of your links (I may have missed a couple, and I’m sorry if I did.) I appreciate everyone’s participation, and I hope to bring a little more traffic your way through StumbleUpon.
Last week we had lots of great links including several pesto recipes. If you haven’t tried this month’s create a pesto challenge, you still have time.
Parsley Walnut Pesto from Chaya’s Comfy Cook BlogMy submission is week is another zucchini recipe:
Vegan Arugula Pesto Melange from The Mommy Bowl
Sun Dried Tomato and Spinach Pesto from Beyond Rice and Tofu
If this is your first time participating, please read the guidelines. Remember to leave a link back here, and I hope you take time to visit some of the other links.

We all thank you so much for hosting this wonderful carnival. It is so fun to see everyone's post come together in one spot!
This week I posted my Cinnamon Raisin "Bran" muffins for the carnival! They are Gluten Free and Dairy Free.
Ditto to what Kim said. I haven't even been doing it very long.
Thank you very much for hosting this event. I'm getting to know a lot more gluten-free bloggers this way, and it helps me in my confidence to cook real food instead of from a box.
And, I admire you very much for homeschooling. I think that takes a lot of discipline on your part. Good for you!
Thank-you for hosting again this week. Your Zucchini Scramble looks very yummy, you always have the best recipes.
I have added my Baked Pork Chop Dinner to your linky.
You can always add your recipes to my Food & Health Carnival on Thursdays. (I hope that is ok to add this in the comment section).
Have a wonderful week.
I linked up a new creation using up some basics before I head off to IFBC--potato-zucchini soup. I made mine in the slow cooker. A very nice, savory soup. Interestingly enough, when I sauteed the zucchini, onion, and garlic before adding them to the slow cookier, I decided it smelled so good, that I added some of the mixture to my scrambled egg that morning. So I had an individual zucchini scramble you could say. ;-) Delicious, as I know yours is!
Balancing homeschooling and homemaking can be difficult. Adding in blogging can occassionally be overwhelming(at least for me). I know we will settle in to a nice routine in a couple of weeks, but until then I am going to have some late nights!
P.S. I thought I submitted duplicate posts and deleted one, but I guess I didn't. I get blonder when I am sleep deprived. :D
Thanks for this fun challenge!
