Menu Plan Monday: Watermelon

Calling all hosts/hostesses!  I know, it’s August, and people are off at blogging conventions and on travel so it’s a challenging time of year.  But if you’re around and would like to host, drop me a line!

I started off with peaches as a theme, and then I harvested watermelon.  And then…oh my.  Isn’t it just too cute?  Maybe it’s just me.  Anyhow.

So it was a busy week!  I posted on Back-to- School G-free style, and my Daring Baker semi success on Petit Fours, too.  And Ricki adopted me, and made my Thai Style Summer Rolls.  Check out the round-up, hosted by Shirley of Gluten-free Easily (GFE)

Onward and upwards!


Salsamole and herby almond crackers

Coconut curry with roasted cauliflower

Grilled salmon with garlic-y broccoli

Chicken Curry, maybe with kale?


Fun stuff:
Blueberry jam
Shirley’s Blueberry Pie, most likely as a blueberry peach version

And everyone else?

Watermelon doesn’t grow well in England, apparently. But Esther of Lilac Kitchen has a recipe for peach black bean salsa , which really sounds fantastic.

Michelle, formerly of Cooking and Uncooking has a new blog, Gluten Free: A Reason 2 Smile. She’s been making her way through Carol Fenster’s new cookbook and so she’s sure to have a tasty week.

Heather, of Celiac Family has a fun week planned. She’s making egg rolls, maybe even GF fortune cookies (sounds amazing!). And her family loves watermelon straight or in kabobs. Can’t go wrong either way!

Kim, of Gluten-free is Life has a menu post up, too.  She’s busy with back to school, of course, and she has a great round up of new foods out ’round the web.

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.

    Hi Cheryl,

    It’s been a while, but I am hopefully back in the blogging world. I have changed from La Cocina de Michelle (Cooking & UNCooking) over to Gluten Free Smiles. I have posted a menu for this week!

    Thanks for taking this on, I know that it must be tough. I don’t know if I qualify, but I would love to help you out and host next week. I’m sure that everyone will be busy with the back to school rush, so it’s not a problem for me.

    I have put up a very basic menu. I’ll host in a couple of weeks if you like but next week is the first day back at school so I don’t really want to do that one.
