I did not get a single recipe up last week! It wasn’t for lack of trying either. I learned a lot about gluten-free baking, but I didn’t have anything to post for all of my efforts. I am really trying to focus on other things, but all I want to do is bake right now. Obsessive, much? Since it is 10:30pm, I suppose I should get my menu done and say goodbye to a week of bad cooking karma.
During this week of bad cooking karma, I spent a lot of time outside with my family. On Saturday,we went to a local (plant) nursery to check out their tree offerings. My husband and I like to plant a tree in the backyard for each little babe we have. Last year, we planted a Willow for Jude. We chose a small little tree and it has grown like crazy in the last year. This year we want to plant a Birch for Dan, but we haven’t found the right one yet. We are still on tight water restrictions in Raleigh, so we want to plant the tree soon while we are getting a little bit of rain. Here’s hoping for more rain!
Our ingredient of the week is coconut! Book of Yum is hosting the menu swap this week. Melanie over at the Gluti Girls has her menu up already with a recipe for Vanilla Almond Sugar Cookies made with coconut flour!
Monday: Asian Shrimp Soup with Green Salad with Ginger Dressing
Tuesday: Lamb Kebabs
Wednesday: Amaretto Chicken
Thursday: Beef and Carrot Stew (from April 2008 Bon Appetit)
Friday: Loaded Baked Potatoes with Mixed Green Salad
