No-bake Pumpkin Pie - by sweetbeetandgreenbean on Flickr- Creative Commonsby Heather Robertson

This week I am using up a lot of frozen chicken breasts and thighs that have been sitting in my deep freezer.

I’ve also been experimenting with the vegan dessert recipes on Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog and I’m loving it! This week we’re going to try the “No-bake Pumpkin Pie”. Yummy!

Please share any menu ideas you and your family will enjoy this week in the comments!

Have a great week!
