Menu Plan Monday – January 12, 2009

Head over to Laura’s at Menu Plan Monday to see what will be on everyone else’s plat this week.  For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, see Fresh Ginger.  She has picked the theme of “locally grown” which is a little tough to pull off here (it is snowing, 10 degrees F with a windchill of 2 degrees F with a Winter Weather Advisory and a Wind Chill Advisory in effect), but I do have some things put up from my garden and the local farmer’s market this summer (canned, dried and frozen) and we have a bunch of grass-feed beef in the freezer that is from a local farm that we purchased in the fall.  I also have some sprouts growing on the kitchen counter for salads.  Can’t get more local than your kitchen counter!

  2. Hi Angela!

    Thanks for the link about Fresh Ginger! I didn’t know about the Gf recipe swap! Love your site!!!

    So, how did your blender waffles turn out? I hope well!


    • The waffles turned out great! Thank you so much! Really lovely with coconut yogurt and lingonberry sauce. Yum! (my version of my mom’s favorite Swedish sour cream/lingonberry waffle topping)

      GF Goodness is the temporary swap headquarters for the GF swap and there is a different host each week. She has a link on the right of her blog page with the “temp swap hdqtrs” on it to see who that week’s host is. You should join in! Your menus are always so awesome and healthy. You have so much to share!

  3. Happy Birthday! You’re an awesome kid!
