Menu plan May 19th

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday
This week’s food is one of my absolute favorites: avocado. I grew up eating avocado sandwiches. Now I skip the bread and just get to the good stuff. Thanks for Cooking and UNcooking, this week’s host, for picking such a fabulous food!

I still have a stomach bug, and I made a huge vat of turkey soup with spring onions, carrot tops, ginger and allspice. I expect that’ll be quite a few of my meals.

And my birthday oat recipe contest is still up until May 31st if anyone is interested!

Monday:
Roasted salmon with an avocado “lemon” thyme sauce: I tried this Avocado Remulade recipe from Elise. We LOVED the creaminess, but the flavor didn’t appeal to us. So we’ve re-worked and it’s become a favorite, especially when wild salmon is only available frozen.

Tuesday:
Grill night
Marinated roasted rainbow peppers with buffalo burgers

Wednesday:
Vegan
Mixed veggies with a Malaysian curry sauce (we’ll see how/if this one works…)
Chocolate banana “pudding” (featuring avocado)

Thursday:
East Indian
Garam masala chicken with Broccoli with 5 spices and papadams

Friday:
my birthday. I’m trying to rope DH in going on a day trip with me, so who knows where we’ll be, or what we’ll be eating.

Weekly harvest from my garden:
spring onions
thyme
carrot tops
oregano

From the Farmer’s Market

Rhubarb (I hope!)
broccoli

Baked good:
the new Daring Bakers challenge, which looks quite promising!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Happy Birthday

    The broccoli recipe sounds great I may see if it works on cauliflower if we still have some left later in the week which I suspect we will!

  2. Hope you feel better soon!

    Esther–
    I’m a cauli fiend, let me know if you try it, and I assume I’ll try it at some point, too!

    Sally–thanks!
