Menu Plan Monday – May 14, 2012

by angelaskitchen on May 14, 2012


Only a few more weeks before the end of the school year, which means our days are filled with a LOT of activity.  Having a menu plan helps me get dinner on the table during these busy weeks.

Honors Night 2012

This week the Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Heather of Celiac Family.  She has picked spinach as the theme ingredient.  Spinach is one of the staple foods in my house.  It is the ONLY green lettuce-type veggie my super picky girl will eat, but she will eat it in abundance, even packing handfuls in her lunch box.  They great thing is it’s versatility:  you can eat spinach fresh or cooked, use is as a salad or sautéed as a bed for an aug for breakfast, toss some into a smoothie or stick it in a sandwich.  Mmmm-mmm!

My son loves to eat spinach, too! My daughter is coming around. She’s watched her brother eat it so much, that she just recently tried eating it plain and raw like he does. She didn’t say she loved it, but she didn’t say she hated it either. So, I think we’ve got another spinach-eater in my house now! Yay for spinach!

Hi! I am so glad he came over last night! What a nice group of kids! I understand what it is like to actually get to eat when you go someplace, because I (and my girls) have allergies, too, so I wanted to make sure he could have something fun to eat. I also made the homemade kettle corn for the group ( The cake was a gluten & dairy free Texas sheet cake that I don’t have it up on the blog yet, but I will get it up later on today for you. It is really easy to make and makes a TON of cake, just right for a crowd of teens! I’ll drop you a line when it is posted. 🙂 Bill is welcome to come over any time!
