Gluten Free Menu Swap-SpringKale


I’m hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week – Woo! We’re focusing on Spring vegetables this month, with this week’s theme being Kale. We love that delish veggie in our house. I can’t wait to see how everyone else serves it up.

What is everyone else serving up?

 Heather from Celiac Family has a delicious list of kale recipes for us to try. Stir-Fried Kale with Bacon, Amy’s Kale and Carrot Slaw, Squash, Kale and Potato Pancakes, and Sweet Potato, Egg and Kale Stacks are definitely ones I want to try! This week she is serving Egg Salad Sandwiches with Kale and Berry Fruit Salad, Rotisserie Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli, Baked Chicken Nuggets and Kale with Cranberries SaladGarlic Shrimp Pasta with Kale, Pizza with Strawberry Kale Salad and Nutty Granola Croutons, and Steak Fajitas with Avocado Salsa. Sounds delicious, Heather!

Menu Plan…Monday? – March 31, 2015

by angelaskitchen on March 31, 2015

Hello! I’m just getting around to posting my menu this week. Better late than never, right? :) I pulled the taps from our trees on Saturday, but we have SO much sap to cook down. Cooking sap has is pretty much been my focus along with canning all the syrupy goodness. Mmmm…

GF Menu Swap-RainbowCarrots

I’ve got a busy week coming. Between cooking down the sap, work, getting ready for Easter (my son will be home – YAY!), work, and getting pumped up for the big high school robotic competition this week (Fri & Saturday, it’s all about the robots) we are buzzing. That doesn’t mean I don’t have time to menu plan, though. Busy weeks are when I most rely on my menu plan to make sure dinner gets on the table, so let’s get to it!

GF Menu Swap-pineapple


Spring break is over for us (and it SNOWED last night) so we’re getting back to our regular routine. I’ve started cooking down sap in our turkey roaster (the only good good excuse for snow in the Spring is that it’s ‘sugar snow’ and means the syrup season is still going strong. Yum!)

This week with the weather changing from snowy to rainy to warm, I wanted warming meals alternating with some summer-time flavors. Fortunately this week’s them is Pineapple, and you can’t get much more tropical than that! I’m hosting [click to continue…]

GF Menu Swap-RainbowCabbage


It was a good week seeing the big boy before he headed back to college. Boy, do I miss him when he’s gone… This week it’s all about the girls and their Spring Break. We’ll be hanging around home this year, playing with friends, getting shorts out (we can dream!), pampering our dog who is having surgery this week, baking and just being together. We’ve got the maple trees tapped (thanks to my son setting everything up before he left), so we’ll also be starting our yearly syrup project.

For our menu plan this week the girls picked some favorites they want to help make. We’ll also be cooking up an apple sauce bunt cake (just for fun), blueberry french toast bake and some high-protein breakfast treats to stash in the freezer (for when they go back to school). We’ll see where the rest of the week takes us.
