It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted…and a couple of busy weeks it has been. (Oh wait, make that a month! Oops!) One week my husband was out of town so I was busy holding down the fort as a ‘single mom’ and then I was out of town for a week for a wedding and other shenanigans with my high school gal pals. In between there we had some dog training issues, a broken garage door and a broken vacuum cleaner. And then I came home and decided I had to have two new baby chicks! So, it’s been a busy few weeks.
And now we’re back to ‘normal’ life…or at least trying. First step, groceries! and in order to do the grocery run, a meal plan is required in this house! There are a few more dishes than normal listed below as not all of these make excessive leftovers and I am also trying to get back onto my ‘normal’ grocery shopping schedule.
After a week of eating out and about, indulging in nose-snorting laughter, good wine and gelato, and not cooking in my own kitchen, I am ready for lots of fresh veggies.
Spicy Ginger Noodles - one of our favorites!
Chickpea and Spinach Curry with rice - another tried and true favorite!
Chinese Noodle Salad with Sesame Dressing – a new one – it’s snow pea season!
Quinoa Pizza Bites – recipe in the works.
Mediterranean Wild Rice Salad – a new recipe in the works.
Socca Pizza with pesto, fresh mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes and salad
White Beans in Tomato Sauce with Sage – another favorite.
So, I hope to have a few new recipes for you in the next week or so. In the meantime…If you’re looking for more ideas and inspiration, be sure to check out the Gluten Free Menu Swap. This week is being hosted by Heather at Celiac Family. The theme is spinach – which I have included above in the Chickpea and Spinach Curry, purely by accident! And unfortunately my spinach didn’t come up this year so no fresh garden spinach for us. Boo.
