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!
