Menu Plan Monday: May 18, 2009

I’m walking 60 miles in the Breast Cancer 3-day!  Will you help me reach my goal?


I think the upcoming week is completely crazy…  Why, oh why, do the things for summer start before the things end at the end of the school year?  It’s nuts!  On top of that, I am not sure why I thought scheduling dental cleanings this week was a good idea…  hmmmm, maybe I am the nutty one.  I will be relying heavily on my menu plan this week and try to have most meals made before the kids get home so we can we dinner as a picnic at the various activities.  That worked pretty well last week.


Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  Sea of Book of Yum is the host for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap.  She has picked zucchini for the week.  I don’t have it in my garden yet, but we have planted the seeds.  Yum!  


Be sure to join me on Friday for Gluten Free-zer Friday and next Monday when I am hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap.  I have chosen avocados for the theme ingredient. 



Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday


The crossed off things on the week are things scheduled, but due to not being able to clone my kids or myself, and being unable to warp the space-time continuum, we will not be doing…  Ha!

Thursday:  oldest daughter:  Fifth Grade Folk Festival/soccer practice    –  Mom goes to 9:45 a.m. Folk Festival and video tape it/help with kindergarten to “have lunch” at school/leader at last Daisy meeting of year  –  Youngest daughter:  Have “lunch” at school like a 1st grader/Daisy meeting

  3. I love all the recipes. We aren’t GFCF, but I have cousins that I occasionally cook for that are. I will definitely be looking for ideas here.

    Have fun with the avocado theme! I adore avocados!

  4. Sorry your not feeling well Angela, and I pray that your healing will spring forth speedily. I was looking forward to attending your class tonight. Will you re-schedule it?

      I am feeling much better now, just really, really tired at this point. Glad to have a long weekend!

      I am so very sorry the class was canceled… Rescheduling it doesn’t seem to be an option right now, but I will get the packet up on the e-book page sometime this weekend for anyone who would like it.
