Menu Plan Monday – May 16, 2011

by angelaskitchen on May 16, 2011

 

I don’t know what you did on Mother’s Day, but my kiddos and I did the Susan G Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure Mother’s Day 5K Walk.  It was a really fun event.  Even my little sweetie walked it.  This was her second 5K!  She is such a big girl now.  Of course, she did have a little bit of big brother help for a few minutes of the walk:

 

This week I feel like spring is finally here with the crab apples in bloom and the sun shining.  I’ll be harvesting rhubarb tomorrow to make some rhubarb strussel muffins and maybe can a bit of a rhubarb based BBQ sauce.  I have a full couple of days planned to cook up some yummy stuff to photograph and put up for the freezer, and some seeds to plant.  Sounds like my kind of week!

Heather of Celiac Family is the host of the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  She has chosen rice as the theme ingredient.  I actually don’t have rice on my menu this week.  Weird!  However, rice would be great in the stuffed peppers and I love to have it on hand already cooked in the freezer for nights I am pressed for time.  I like making “green rice” (packed with minced fresh cilantro) in the summer and make nori rolls with veggies for a snack.  My favorite way to eat rice has to be Pork Fried Rice. Mmmm…  Other rice recipes on my blog are Asian Bean and Rice Rolls, Basic Brown Rice, Black Beans & Brown Rice, Gourmet Rice Dressing, and Seasoned Yellow Rice.

Thanks for sharing all the great rice recipes on GF menu swap! And I think I need a couple more recipes for the Santa Fe Quinoa salad and the chicken enchiladas. Please? 🙂
