Menu plan monday Dec 7th

It’s gotten cold here rather suddenly, and given the fact that it’s been so lovely until now, I can’t really complain. But the dudes always have the right idea. Whenever the going gets tough, snuggle up.

I had a fun week of baking last week, including carob balls and dairy free pralines per my sister’s request (I will post soon!). And looking towards this week, I’m eagerly anticipating soup and finally, a time to unwind a bit.

Our hostess for the menu swap is Esther from Lilac Kitchen, and she’s chosen suet. Now, this may be a common ingredient across the pond but it’s new to me, so I look forward to seeing how it’s used!


Chicken and broccoli in fresh mint sauce

Turkey soup!

Pesto-ed mahi with steamed kale and kalamatas

Lentil dal with roasted cauliflower



Baked goods:
cheesecake, I think
pumpkin bread (maybe)

From my garden:
aside from herbs, that’s all for the season. Most of the raspberries froze on the vine, regretfully.

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.

    Glad you like finding out about new things so liked my choice. I have added you to the round up. So do educate me what are mahi and kalamatas?

  2. Mahi mahi is fish and Kalamatas are olives!

  3. Heather says:

    Your menu sounds perfectly wonderful. Do you have recipes for that mint sauce and Mahi pesto? Yum!

  4. The pesto is here

    The mint is simple–just broth with mint leaves and lemon juice.

  5. Thanks for the reminder; I’ve got to go make some pumpkin bread!
