Menu Plan Monday May 12th

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday
 Our kind host this week is Faking it Gluten Free Style.  Love the name! This week’s theme is strawberries.  Boy do they look gorgeous, I got some for my husband at the Farmer’s Market last week. They were so beautiful it seemed silly to dress them up, they were perfect as is.

Also, I’m hosting a little recipe contest for creative bakers…I plan to try finally try oats for my birthday and am searching for good recipes!

So here’s the plan for this week:
Market bounty:
Roast turkey with roasted asparagus (bumped from last week’s menu because of time)
Rhubarb compote-recipe to follow


Simple and delicious:
Avocado and roasted tomato/caramelized onion soup

East Indian/vegan
I’m hoping to convert this recipe for Aloo Dum into a Cheryl friendly dish by swapping a bunch of ingredients. It won’t be authentic, but hopefully will be yummy.

Tuna “steak” with steamed artichokes in a lemony thyme sauce.

DH’s favorite:
Chicken with caramelized onions, rosemary, and garlic on a bed of wild rice with steamed broccoli

Carrot/coconut muffins…and probably real food, too.
wild and wonderful

Weekly harvest:
From my garden:

My herbs are growing out of control! This is my perennial patch (clockwise) thyme, oregano, sage, rosemary, and chocolate mint. The tarragon fades into the background and the marjoram is hiding behind the sage, I think.

From the Farmer’s Market:

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.

    Your herb garden looks wonderful! Mine needs to hurry up and grow! And I like the sound of your DH’s “Favorite” chicken. I really enjoy relatively simple foods with nice fresh herbs and give them flavor.

  3. I agree–simple is often best.
    My herb garden is so big because most were planted 4 years ago and have been independent agents since. I love “hands free” gardening!
