Whew!  Have I been relaxing or what?  Love it!  Well, watch out, because I am back and ready to go.  For my menu this week, I’ll be serving several things I have on the blog and updating the original posts with photographs, so you will want to check back for that as I go along this week.   I thought the visuals might be helpful…

This month, starting on Wednesday, I’ll have a series devoted to back to school:  packing lunches, pre-cooking for those busy school days, filling our freezers with homemade breakfasts with plenty of links for yummy recipes for lunch time fun.  Just little tips and tricks that I do to make packing and bringing a lunch a bit easier, along with what I am pre-prepping myself to get ready for the school year.

To start my back-to-school prep this week, I’ll be baking Corn Dog Muffins (double batch/put in the freezer) and Banana Bread Muffins (double batch/put in the freezer).  I’ll update the above links with photos when those are baked off.  🙂

Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness is our host for the Gluten Free Menu Swap.  She has picked peaches for the theme ingredient.  I LOVE the peaches.  Mmmm…  Thanks, Cheryl!  For yummy peachy love, I think I’ll be making another batch of Peach Muffins, and a big batch of Bombay Chicken with peaches.  They both freeze really well and will be a welcome addition to my back-to-school breakfast and lunch prep plans, unless, of course, I eat them all by myself!  🙂

If you would like to host the Gluten Free Menu Swap, drop Cheryl a line at Gluten Free Goodness. She would love to hear from you!
