Menu Plan Monday Feb 23rd

We’ve gone a little exotic this week with our theme, “Umami”, as chosen by Asparagus Thin. And who doesn’t love savory goodness?  We had a great quinoa dish with kalamatas this weekend, and I’m hoping to work in some stock next weekend to celebrate.  I can’t wait to see what others do!

This week will be a busy one, so I’ll be focusing on what I can do easily.  But I’m also hoping to return to baking this weekend with totally decadent vegan brownies that are just amazing.  I had quite a few bouts of the stomach flu over the last few weeks and now I’m supposed to gain some weight.  What can I say, the brownies should help!

Oh, and last call for the healthy recipe contest! There are really some amazing prizes donated, like a $75 tote from BRM, Carol Fenster’s new book, etc.


Beef coconut curry with collards

Turkey with celery in a chestnut sauce and cornbread for my DH
Rhubarb ginger compote

Avocado and tomato soup with caramelized onions (last jar…sniff sniff!)

Thyme salmon with roasted mini peppers

Chicken in a parsley/garlic marinade with broccoli

Turkey soup!

Baked good:
Decadent brownies
Sweet potato cornbread–it didn’t happen last week, but DH really deserves a treat. Fingers crossed.

Have a great week!

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.
