Menu Plan Monday August 25th

This is huge for me.  I loathed eggplant as a kid.  My family loved it, and as any of you who have kids (or have been a kid) know, the more someone pushes you to eat something, the more you detest it.   Eggplant and okra were the only veggies that I refused to eat because of taste.  However, our fine host for MPM this week, Fresh Ginger, has chosen eggplant as the ingredient of the week.  I felt like this was a good opportunity to reevaluate my (lack of) relationship with eggplant.  I’ll keep you posted.

BTW, I’m also giving away some fun stuff (Larabars, Salba, cookies, etc)

Monday:
Out for a belated celebration of DH’s 30th B-day.  Here’s a picture of his birthday chocolate cashew mini-tart (gluten free, of course).  He’s eating it as I type and hasn’t paused yet.  I assume that means it’s good. 8-)

Tuesday:
Millet-thyme crusted turkey cutlets (didn’t get to them last week!)
roasted eggplant with thyme

Weds:
Vegan
Tomato soup with caramelized onions and cashew cream (will post later this week for this edition of GAHIGF), focusing on seasonal veggies

Thursday:
Grillin’
Salmon and roasted marinated peppers

Friday:
East indian
Beef curry, papadams and caramelized cabbage with chaat masala

Baked good of the week:

Caramel-y quinoa cookies
Rosemary cake (maybe)

From my garden:

Peppers!
tomatoes
basil
ground cherries
thyme
oregano
rosemary

From the market:

cabbage
eggplant
arugula
onions
more tomatoes

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.

    Everything sounds delicious! I need to really plan out my meals for the week…I always get distracted when I go to the marché and never stick to my plan!

    Caramel-ish Quinoa Cookies…-droooool.-

    I got so miffed when my BF ate caramels and I can’t because of the dairy – curses! I oughta make something like that and give him none.

    Hmph.
