Menu Plan Monday–Apples!

I’ve been largely occupied with studying, which means baking and making excuses for not studying. So it was a fun week of baking/cooking ’round these parts–I received Shauna’s book, and made the fococcia and spiced walnuts, which I’ll post this week.  In summary: holy yum.

And I also made carob sweeties and Hazelnut cookies from Ricki’s new book, and, BTW, she has a great giveaway for Amy’s products on her site, so scurry on over!

Our hostess this week is Chickiepea of Eating for Autoimmune Health. This week’s theme is apples, and as a NY’er, apples are almost holy. This week I got some Liberty apples at the Farmer’s market and I’m curious how they work in a crisp. Even though my favorite apple use is just to eat them! And calling all hosts…email me if you’d like to host the menu plan.

Monday:
grillin’-steak and peppers (E and I both get our favorite thing!)

Tues:

Roasted salmon, maybe? I need to figure this out
Weds:
Southwestern Quinoa and Beans
Thursday:
Faux chicken parm
Friday:
Out to dinner–date with DH

Baked goods:
either apple squares, brownies or a chocolate rasp cake. I can’t really go wrong, can I!

Garden yums:

basil
pumpkins
squash blossoms
herbs
kale

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. Sounds like a good week, especially Friday. ;)

  2. Ricki says:

    Hope you enjoyed the treats! I haven’t even seen Shauna’s new book yet. . . must go check it out (it was her first book that actually got me involved in blogging in the first place!). And if you do post something with apples, please submit it to the SOS Kitchen Challenge on my blog this month! :)

  3. I agree with Heather. Every week needs a date night.

  4. Scrumptious says:

    Looks like a yummy week! I don’t think it is quite apple season here yet. But I am looking forward to it with gusto!

    Have a great week of cooking!

  5. Heather,
    I know, we rarely do date night out…sometimes we picnic, but this is more fun.
    Ricki,
    Well, I guess I owe Shauna a big fat thank you then!
    Wendy,
    We’ve tried to put it on the schedule and it always gets bumped off…we need to work on that.
    Scrumptious:
    Wow, I thought it was apple season in most areas. It’s one of my favorites.
