Menu Planning: Picnic/Camping

(1st basil pesto of the season above!)

So clearly I haven’t gotten into the swing of menu planning again, but I’m still trying when possible.  AND, stay tuned for the 2nd Annual July Self-Care Retreat!  The 1st July retreat was great fun, and the December Sanity Challenge was, too.  I’m hoping we’ll have lots of company this time around, too and will post more later this week.

I was delighted to FINALLY meet Heather of Celiac Family (Menu Swap Coordinator!)right before her move to Colorado!  Neither of us thought to get pictures, but I will have to snap the mint plants she gave me.

Our hostess this week is Angela of Angela’s kitchen, and our theme is camping food or picnics.  I find that on trips without refrigeration, chickpea crackers are among my best friends, and I’m overdue for a batch.

I posted a new recipe for Cashew Cookies (gf, paleo friendly, vegan), and will hopefully get a chance to catch up on more recipes soon.



Turkey cutlets with kale pesto and roasted broccoli


Salmon and baby greens


Beef stew.  Never too hot in my book!


Leftovers—I’m home really late


White beans and sautéed mache?  I will have to see what inspires

In my garden:

  • Basil + garlic=1st basil pesto of the season!
  • 1 cuke
  • 1 red pepper
  • A few ground cherries

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. Thanks for joining in on the swap. The kale pesto sounds so good! I’ll keep my eyes peeled for the self care retreat. Can’t wait to see what you share this time. 🙂

  3. I love turkey cutlets! I didn’t even know you could buy different cuts of turkey before I wrote the cookbook and needed ideas! LOL Now it’s one of my favorite proteins for meals!! 🙂
