Garlic! and a mini menu plan

See those babies?  They’re actually garlic shoots, which is a nice reminder that Spring will eventually be here.  I took those this week, I guess somehow I knew that our hostess, Michelle of Gluten Free Smiles would go with a garlic theme!

Last week, I posted on Shirley of GFE in my “Best of the Best” series, and if you’d like to know her favorites, do go check that out!

It’s been a busy week and I’ve done a lot in the kitchen.  I made two Daring Baker treats, which will be posted next week.

Looking ahead, DH will be out of town, which essentially means I’m on break from kitchen duty.  Love to cook, but LOVE the breaks, too!  So food will be simple.

Salmon and avocado on baby greens with herbs

Kalamata hummus on baby greens with herbs

Yummy Lentil Dal

Quinoa with Kale Pesto

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. Great pic! I hadn’t thought of growing garlic – what a great plan! I’m off menu planning duty this week. We gorged on gluten free baked goodies at the Mariposa bakery in Oakland today. I bought pizza and bagels home for tomorrow and on Thursday we’re heading up to the mountains to ski. Am looking forward to be back in organized mode next week. ;-).

  2. I think all of us like the little break to make simple meals or just eat whole foods “a la carte” even. I know I do.

    Very cool on the garlic and, yes, if you’ve two Daring Bakers’ dishes, you have been busy!!

    Thanks again for including me in Best of the Best, Cheryl, and mentioning the post. 🙂 Have a great week!

  4. Nicola,
    garlic is super easy and probably can be started now if you’re so inclined…

    Shirley, yes, DB is fun but my goodness, a lot of work!

  5. Great post, really like the garlic comments and the picture. Spring is almost here.
    About your menu: my family loves Quinoa and Lentils, healthy and delicious.
