My menu plan is now sponsored by the great people over at Better Batter Flour.  The menus will also be published at Start Gluten Free, an online resource made to welcome people into the gluten free living community and help them not feel overwhelmed by new dietary restrictions.  I am thrilled to be a small part of this vibrant community!  Stop by and say “Hi!”

gluten Free Menu Swap-green beans

Heather is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week over at Celiac Family.  The theme is Green Beans.  Yummy!  I adore those little pods of goodness.  We’ll often just munch on them straight from the garden or farmer’s market bag, but I also like to serve them in stir fries, steamed,  in Kale-idoscope Potato SaladSeasoned Green Beans, in Chicken and Vegetable Curry orChicken Mango CurryFreezer Beef StewTilapia & Summer Vegetable Packets and, of course,Green Bean Casserole.  What is your favorite way to serve up green beans?
