Monday Menu Swap May 26th

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday

This week’s special food is one of my favorites, tomatoes! Thanks to Esther at Lilac Kitchen for hosting this week. Growing up, I hated tomatoes. It was only when I had them right off the vine that I began to appreciate them, and now I love homegrown tomatoes.

Regretfully, tomatoes won’t be in season here for a good month or so, so I’ll have to make due with canned. I start my tomato seeds in February, and some of the plants are outside, and some are going out next week. Above is one of my toe babies a month or so ago, and now he’s out chillin’ in the sunshine. As you can (maybe?) see in the picture, there is an itty bitty green tomato on one of my plants. Isn’t it cute?

Out grillin’
Breakfast/lunch: leftover turkey garden burgers with roasted peppers
Dinner: Grilled salmon with thyme and grilled asparagus


Tarragon chicken with roasted carrots (as inspired by Kalyn’s recipe, I haven’t figured out how I’ll adapt it yet.)


Millet crusted turkey cutlets and braised spring onions

Spicy puttansca-ish sauce (featuring tomatoes and kalamata olives) with brown rice pasta and broccoli
note: it’s much better with oil cured olives, but I can’t seem to find any that are vinegar and citric acid free. If you know of brands and where to get them, drop me a line por favor…

Lunch: Tomato and caramelized onion soup (from my freezer) with avocado
Dinner: Leftovers!


Summer rolls and with Thai dipping sauce and spiced black rice pudding (teaching a GF and healthy class)

Weekly harvest:
From my garden:
Spring onions

From the Farmer’s Market:

Dessert of the week: Spiced black rice pudding–recipe post up soon

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.
