Menu Plan Monday: Cranberries

I hope everyone had a lovely, yummy Thanksgiving. As I type, turkey stock is in progress and it’s one of my favorite (and easiest!) parts of the holiday. Onward to a new week! Our new kitchen is complete, so I have been back to baking, which has been fun. As you can see above, I started out with this flourless chocolate cake.

Our menu ingredient is cranberries, and our host is Manda of Asparagus thin. She’s just come back from her honeymoon, so many congrats! I love cranberries, and my favorite way is to have them raw, or in a crisp. They’re super healthy and I love them in a salad.

Monday:
Roasted Salmon and rosemary peppers

Tues:
Leftover turkey (still some around!)

Weds:
Chicken in a parsley garlic sauce with broccoli

Thurs:
Buffalo in a coconut curry sauce with cauliflower

Friday:
Lentil dal

Baked goods:
carob chestnut balls (I lost the recipe in our move, but I will do my best to re-create them!)

granola bars

From the garden:
tomatoes (yes, still!)
raspberries

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.
