Gluten Free Menu Swap- March 17, 2008

menu swap 040 Gluten Free Menu Swap  March 17, 2008

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

LOOKING AHEAD TO EASTER:

I will be making these recipes for my Easter brunch:

Almond Honey Yeast Bread

Banana Bread

Crab Crustless Quiche

Spinach Tomato Crustless Quiche

Crustless Cheesecake

I have not decided the rest of my menu! If you are looking for more gluten-free Easter recipes, visit my Recipes page.

  1. I love the Almond honey bread! I can’t wait to make it for Easter dinner. I am just so happy to have two breads I can rely on.

    What a great idea to plant trees for the babies. We planted 3 birch trees in our back yard last year. It’s a bit swampy in parts so we thought they would do well. I just love them so much I would like to plant another one out front. They grow pretty fast and the leaves aren’t too big! You will enjoy it.

  2. i look forward to trying your quice recipes the look awesome hopefully you will check out my menu this week as well your http://fakingitgfstyle.blogspot.com/2008/03/menu-swap-for-march-17th-coconut.htmlmenu

  3. Yes, the blog is always the first thing to go when I get busy too. :-D Hope you will get some more rain so you can plant your tree. That sounds like a really neat tradition. Of course, our yard couldn’t take a tradition like that. lol. I look forward to reading your recipes when you get a chance to post them. I still have a phobia of GF baking. I keep thinking I’ll get around to trying it but I come up with lots of convenient excuses. ;-)

    As for a menu, I hope to actually get one done. Now, whether or not I ever get it posted…hehe. I could use a real vacation I think.
