Menu Plan Monday: Tomatoes

I hope everyone has weathered the earthquake and storm with grace.  What a week, huh?  I had a good one, and a relaxing weekend, which was way long overdue.  The storm gave me extra opportunity to sit home and do nothing, which was exactly what I needed.

I’m hosting this week’s menu plan with the theme of tomatoes.  Usually, by this time of year, my kitchen is overrun with tiny gems of various colors. Above is a picture from last year.

This year, tomatoes are the snack of choice of area deer.  I thought I would have a lovely picture (this is last year’s bounty), but nope!  I do have a few that I snagged before they did, though.

I hope you all had better luck holding on to your tomatoes than I did.

As a weekly re-cap, I posted one of my favorite recipes, Simply Yum Quinoa, which is a quick, easy, one pot meal.  Diane of the WHOLE Gang has a great auction for Jeannie (see her blog for the whole scoop).  And Carrie, the Ginger Lemon Girl has an e-book of her favorite recipes out!  Life is good.

Coconut collard curry (say that 10 times fast, I dare you!)

Sniffle stew

Simply Yum Quinoa!

Renee of Beyond Rice and Tofu is a lucky woman. She’s got Green Zebras and Napa Grape Tomatoes in her garden! She’s been exploring new cookbooks and has a garden heavy quinoa recipe on the menu, too.

Let’s have a warm welcome for Gluten Free in Detroit! Amanda is a fan of menu planning for budget reasons. She doesn’t have tomatoes because of the wacky weather, but is hoping for the generosity of neighboring gardeners. She’s off to a BBQ tonight, which sounds like fun!

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. Hi, Cheryl! Bummer about your tomato crop. Deer do seem to like tomatoes as much as we do! 🙂

    That Coconut Collard Curry sounds really tasty! Another one to book mark from your site (so much yumminess here). I have a nice crop of collards to use and now I know what in. thanks!

    My post is up. Hope you have a great week and that you weathered the storm well. 🙂
