Menu Plan Monday: Garlic!

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday - Garlic
Happy snowy Monday! We’re under 2 feet of snow, or thereabouts, and fortunately DH is on shoveling patrol and my main responsibility is to make hot chocolate. I can handle that!

I have been doing way too much baking since I’m stuck home: meringues, croissants (yep! they are beautiful, but I did roll them too thickly), an apple crisp, brownies, and more. Now I just need to get to posting!
Angela of Angela’s Kitchen is our kind hostess and garlic is her theme. I love the sound and the name of her Thai Thighs, so check it out! We are having garlic chicken and broccoli for lunch today, so we’re all set.

And please let me know if you’d like to host.

Monday:
Garlic Chicken and broccoli for lunch and probably dinner–we haven’t ventured out yet.

Tues:
Chai chicken with broccoli–a cinnamon/cardamom/cloves seasoning blend that I made ages ago. We’ll see how it works out.

Weds:
Turkey and celery in chestnut sauce

Thursday:
Red lentil Dal and cauliflower

Friday:
Leftovers

Sunday:
Red Pepper chicken!

Treats:
there will be chocolate covered strawberries, as always, and who knows what else. I guess it depends on how many days I’m home!

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.

    I have you hooked up to the swap now. Sounds like it’s been tasty around your house. Did you do the croissants your other allergies free too? They look amazing. I have been TRYING to make a gluten AND dairy free one, but haven’t quite got it the way I want it yet.

    The snow has been crazy this year, hasn’t it? Fortunately I am usually on hot cocoa patrol myself.

    I like making the Thai Thighs, but I like saying it too. It always gets a giggle from the family. ;o)

  3. Hey Cheryl,
    I’m starting to get your blog posts in the google alert I have set for my name. Today I clicked through a link that is included in the alert and your recipes look great! My husband and I are both very health conscious. He’s a (wild) fish eating vegan. I consider myself more of a flexitarian, although I haven’t eaten beef or chicken for over 10 years now.

    We are excited to be launching the Conscious Creation Cafe later this month and would like to find out more about what is involved with hosting.

    We have about 30 inches of snow where we are, expecting 6-12 more today.

    Keep brewing that hot chocolate and stay warm,

    Cheryl Harris

  4. Angela,
    nope, the croissants are loaded with dairy, sorry! I made the dough for daring bakers a few months back and have been baking off a few croissants whenever friends/family are in need of a decadent treat.

    Cheryl, what fun to find a namesake. I will email you with more info on the swap, or click on the swap headquarters link
