Menu Plan Monday–Rasperries

Well, if you’ve read my post before, you know that raspberries have been the ongoing theme around here for the past few weeks, and will be for a few weeks more.  The picture is of just half of our bushes…I think we’ve finally reached a point where enough is enough! Not only are we eating and freezing gobs of raspberries, but we’re frequently seeing birds flying by with red berries in their mouths…and red poop on cars.  Thanks a lot, guys!

So…how do you enjoy your raspberries best?  I’m making raspberry jam today to use up some of them.  I like fresh best, but topping a tart, in a cake, in a crisp…they are so many ways they work beautifully!  and I did use a bunch to adorn my daring baker treat for this month which will be posted in a few weeks.

Oh yeah…calling all hosts! Yes, that means you.

Heather of Celiac Family joins us just before her kids are all done for the summer, and she’s in need of a good vacation! She’s got some great sounding dishes like Chicken Tikka Masala and even a Micky D’s run. And yes, their fries are GF.

Esther pays us a visit from across the pond with a freezer-clearing weekend, which is always a good idea. She’s got omlets on the line up which is a lovely quick/easy meal. Welcome back, Esther!

Renee, of Beyond Rice and Tofu joins us with a vegetarian/flexitarian menu. She has Muttar Paneer, which sounds delicious, AND she needs to figure one what fabulously decadent dessert she wants to make this week, which sounds like a fabulo

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. Wow, sounds like you’ll have plenty of raspberries to get you through the winter! How about some thumbprint cookies with that homemade raspberry jam?

    Umm raspberries we love them but it will b a couple more weeks before we get good local ones, the supermarket ones are still from Spain currently !

    My menu, for the first time in ages, is at the link below. Rather basic as we are eating up what remains in the freezer at the moment. as we are having a clear out.

  4. Heather,
    hmmm..I don’t think I’ve ever made thumbprint cookies. That’s an idea! After adding the picture of your meringues, I’m tempted to make those again.

    We need to clean out our freezer too, and I think that’s a great idea. thanks for joining us again!
