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.

Menu Plan Monday – March 9, 2015

by angelaskitchen on March 9, 2015


Spring is finally in the air! My son is home for Spring Break and the girls start their break Thursday (or according to them, the second they get home on Wednesday). My son will be tapping our trees tomorrow (we love our maple syrup) and the chickens are free to roam the backyard without worrying about snow on their precious toes. Chickens are total divas, I tell ya…

Over the next few weeks expect to see plenty of egg dishes while the chickens kick egg laying into high gear. With nine chickens, we are starting to see quite a few as the days get longer. You’ll also see my menus try to find the balance between warming meals for the cooler days and lighter meals with plenty of fresh greens for those days when I’m craving a meal that tastes of summer.

Today’s Gluten Free Menu Swap is hosted by Heather of Celiac Family and Blueberries are the theme. We eat quite a few blueberries on salads, in [click to continue…]
