Menu plan Monday June 29th

first tomato

Another busy week! It’s hard to catch up sometimes (all the time?) But I skipped last week and discovered that meant running to the grocery store more often and running out of necessary ingredients, so planning is a must.

Heather of Celiac Family is our lovely hostess for this week, and her ingredient of choice is balsamic vinegar. It’s great on strawberries, and offers a nice shot of flavor…but as I’m allergic, it’ll only be on DH’s salad.

I’m eager to see people’s menus. I’ve realized that I’ve gotten a wee bit boring and repetitive, and may have to break out some new recipes to try next weekend.

My garden is starting to really get rocking. I’ve had my first tomatoes and cukes, and everything is getting big! I need to get out and take pictures. It’s such a fun day, when I peek at a plant and there’s a ripe tomato looking back at me! What’s even funnier is that I thought I only had red and orange tomato plants this year. Whoops.

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.

  2. Your menu looks great as usual! Do you have a recipe for Mondays meal or is that just something you throw together. I am loving sunbutter since finding that I can’t tolerate nuts:)

  3. Hi Kim.

    It’s 1/2 cup (ish) sunbutter, with maybe 1 cup water, some lime, chili powder and some salt. Or sometimes curry powder. it varies each time.
