Menu looks great as usual! I like your added notes to each.
When you go to the bread store do you ever see gluten free items?

Thank you Joy :)

I haven't seen any yet, but next time I go, I will ask her can she get it!

another note for you-
The Graham Granola Recipe you and I have? You can sub out the wheat flour for coconut flour and have a gluten free Granola for Little-Bit! ;-)
