Menu Plan Monday–Rhubarb!

e-n-hI planned on sitting this one out for time reasons, but changed my mind when I was at the grocery store and realized I didn’t know what was on the menu, because I hadn’t planned…

Above is a pic of my sweetie and his kitty. They seem to master the art of sharing. When it’s me and my cat, we’re both shoving away until one of us up and leaves (usually me…) So I share this photo in the spirit of a peaceful week.

I’ve been busy in the kitchen last week, making mypralines Easy Almond Cookies, and also pralines, both for my sister and for Mamafish (Shellyfish’s mama) as part of her 60 day project. I just need to inspire my tush to the post office…

Manda of Asparagus thin is our kind hostess for this week, and she’s chosen rhubarb. I LOVE rhubarb. I wasn’t able to find the good stuff at the store, so I’ll be using rhubarb from the freezer. Rather tasty, rather un-photogenic.


Spice rubbed butterflied leg of lamb with kale

Arugula pesto with broccoli and pine nuts, an avocado

Chicken with a red curry coconut sauce (using Red Curry paste from my freezer) and bok choy

Turkey and rhubarb compote and celery in a chestnut sauce

Darned if I know! most likely leftovers

Baked goods:
the daring baker challenge
Nana skillet bread
cookies (maybe)

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. Friday menu is my favorite. Darned if I know Friday should be a new theme. What to do with all the week’s leftovers. My hubby used to write with the cat in the same position in his chair.

    Rhubarb! I love rhubarb! I went to the marché Sunday and didn’t see any, but I know it should be arriving soon! I looooove it!
    That pic is so cute, great back support!
    And those pralines…I need to make a quick trip to visit my mum so I can taste them! You’re a real doll sending her homemade goodies. I am too scared to try, with that long trip, and those customs guys might eat them!

  3. Wendy:
    Ha! sounds like a great plan. By friday, I’m usually out of energy.

    Well, in the continental US they’ve traveled well, except in summer months when they get melty, but still yummy.

    That photo is too cute! I’m also a fan of rhubarb–yum!

    Re: your question on my blog: you could absolutely use a regular food processor if you have one–it’s just that the batch was so small, I didn’t think it was worth it! 🙂

    A hearty thank you for the most delicious pralines!! I have always wanted to taste them, but never had. I was not disappointed! My daughter Laurie had a taste and fell in love. I gave her your address, so she may be asking for the recipe. Funny thing, you mention rhubarb on this post, and we just dug up a couple of plants to bring down to our daughter, Laurie. She planted it over the weekend. This has been the best birthday ever! Love, Mamafish
