Menu Plan Monday June 23rd

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday
I can’t believe how the summer is flying by! It seems unbelievable that it’s the end of June but here we are. This week’s flavor is oregano, as chosen by our kind host, Gluten Free Sox Fan. It is very convenient, as I’ve got more than my share of it. I have a lot growing as you can see, but have just begun to use it more in my meals. I’m looking forward to seeing the other oregano recipes! I’ll be posting an oregano-heavy meal for “Go Ahead Honey, It’s GF” which is hosted by Ginger Lemon Girl. It’s not too late to submit yours!

Dinner: Nightshade stew, featuring oregano with avocado

Here fishy fishy
Garlic scrape pesto halibut with steamed broccoli

Leftovers! Something from my freezer (maybe turkey?) with red pepper sauce and caramelized cabbage

Rotisserie grilled chicken rubbed with oregano and other herbs and caramelized spring onions (finishing up my harvest for this year)

most likely, munching while prepping for Saturday’s cookout

GF Cookout!
Speidie marinated chicken, bbq chicken, veggie skewers, cornbread, freshly squeezed mint lemonade, fresh guac and chips, 3 bean salad, chocolate almond balls (maybe), black bean brownies (still tinkering with the recipe), pecan pie and…well, if I get inspired, who knows.
All GF, though not all dairy/egg/soy/corn/sugar free…but I’ll have plenty to eat.

Garden roundup:
My garden:
gobs of raspberries and some blueberries–that picture is the berries from one day, and I get those daily. it’s awesome!
one peach
garlic scrapes
a pepper!
oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, etc.
spring onions
And the first tomato, unless some little critter gets to it first! *update: I got it and it was super yummy. Nothing like your first home grown tomato of the season!!!

From the Farmer’s Market:


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.

    Oh man! Those red raspberries look delicious! Trade you for some pie cherries, I’m overloaded!

  3. Oh, I wish! I’d love cherries, and we just have no room for a tree. This is the last of the raspberries, we’re getting the area treated for termites, so if anyone nearby wants raspberry plants, drop me a line!
