My menu made it up today! My children have kept me non-stop busy. They have finally fallen asleep, so I can post my menu in [long-awaited] peace. Jude and Dan are still getting over that cold, so there is no rest for the weary around here. Lucky for me, Ginger Lemon Girl, is hosting the menu swap this week. You can find several other (more timely) menus by visiting her blog here.
The ingredient of the week is Chocolate. I am sure no one will have trouble consuming chocolate this week! I am going to try and make truffles for my Valentine this week, so if they turn out you I will make sure to post the recipe. I am attempting truffles because boxed candy normally has a lot of preservatives, weird ingredients, and possible cross-contamination. If I can make chocolates with a little bit of cream and butter, I am willing to take the challenge. Let the record show that I reserve the right to buy chocolate if this project fails.
Gluten Free in SD contacted See’s Candies and has some great information on their site about the gluten-free status of See’s candy. There are some candies that are not gluten-free, so make sure to check it out. I used this website a lot when I was newly gluten free (living on the West Coast then) and would have to send my husband out for a spur of the moment pregnancy craving. tee hee.
On their website, Russell Stover candies states that Russell Stover’s chocolates are gluten-free too. Make sure to double check ingredients as always.
Here is my gluten free menu:
Monday: Beef Sauce with Tinkyada Spaghetti
Tuesday: Braised Chicken with Peppers
Wednesday: Stir Fry with Coconut Rice with Chicken and Veggies
Thursday: Potato Soup and Salad
Friday: Possibly a Baked Italian flavored fish – not sure yet!
