Menu Plan Monday June 28th

And despite the fact that it feels like August here, it’s just June.  The temperatures around here are regularly hitting 100, and my plants are largely left to their own devices.  It’s WAY too hot for me.  And I haven’t been as good about watering as I want to be.

So Wendy of Celiacs in the House is back in the saddle of menu planning, and her choice for this week is cabbage.  I LOVE cabbage.  Cabbage loves me lots less.  But my favorite is this recipe for caramelized cabbage

I have been baking up a storm in the kitchen, I guess ’cause I’ve been stir crazy.  Chocolate pavlovasPecan pie.  Pumpkin seed butter.  Almond cookies.  I need to swear off the kitchen for a bit, I think!

It’s a busy week for me, and so I’m trying to keep it simple. I think I broke my toe, and now I’m not quite sure how to make my schedule work and hobble around. fingers crossed for it feeling better soon! I am also going to be participating in an FDA hearing on medications for Celiac Disease, which should be exciting…and hopefully it’s easy to get around.


Monday:

Mahi mahi with arugula pesto

Tues:
Quinoa with mint and garden fresh tomatoes

Weds:
Nightshade stew with my baby green peppers

Thursday:
Leftovers, maybe?

In the garden:

I didn’t make it to the Farmers’ market because of my toe…next week, hopefully!

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.

  1. It’s easy to forget how one little hurt toe can cause so much trouble. Hope you’re feeling better soon, and keeping cool inside!

    I know what you mean about cabbage loving you less. I’ve had trouble with it in the past, but have been able to tolerate it better lately in small amounts. That caramelized cabbage looks very interesting. I may have to give it a try.
