Menu Plan Monday – March 21, 2011

by angelaskitchen on March 21, 2011

Today the kids all headed back to school, spring break over.  So far, this year’s maple tapping brought 4 cups first-run syrup.  I  just boiled down some more sap from the past few days and got another 6 cups.  Ya-hoo!  Not too bad from 6 little taps.  Last year we got a total of 10 cups of syrup, so I feel like we are doing pretty well so far, with hopefully a couple more weeks to go.  Thanks to my son who helps tap the trees and gather the sap!  Next week to start the new food preserving series, I’ll show you how we tap trees, boil off the sap and finally, how to can your tasty syrup so it lasts  through out the year.

Don’t forget to join me next Monday for the Gluten Free Celebrations blog carnival.  If you have a great gluten free recipe you use to celebrate with family and friends, please join me in the party.

Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, see Celiacs in the House.  She picked noodles as the theme in honor of National Noodles Month.  Mmmm…  noodles…  I had no idea they had a month, but, trust me, I am ready to eat me some GF noodles in support!

If you have a hankering to try your hand at making your own gluten free noodles this weekend, try these recipes:

Ginger Lemon Girl

Kate the Bake

Monday: Boy Scout meeting/dance lesson

Sesame Chicken with green beans and brown rice

Thursday: Brownie Girl Scout Meeting

Bison & Sweet Potato Stew with a salad

Friday: host Gluten Free-zer Friday (I’ld love it if you would join me!)/Mommy help in the school library

Kid’s choice.  I need to see what the kiddo’s would like to help make for dinner.  I am betting noodles will get a big YES!

Hi, Amanda!

Yep, I have some ideas for you. Here they are in no particular order, just how they were pulled off my book shelf…

Allergy & Candida Cooking Made Easy by Sondra K. Lewis and Lonnett D. Blakley – nice if you are checking is candida is also contributing to your symptoms along with foods.

Allergy and Candida Cooking: Understanding and Implementing Plans for Healing by Sondra Kay Lewis and Dorie Fryling Fink – has a plans for food rotating.

The Rotation Diet Cookbook by Jill Carter & Alison Edwards – has a 4-day rotation plan set up with recipes.

The Allergy Discovery Diet by John E. Postley – A plan and recipes to help pin point allergies and intolerances.

Two other books that do not have plans spelled out or recipes, but great resources on the subject: Food Allergies and Food Intolerance by Jonathan Brostoff and Linda Gamlin and The Whole Way to Allergy Relief & Prevention by Jacqueline Krohn

Hope the above resources help you out!
