Menu Plan Monday- October 1st

This weekend was beautiful in Raleigh. The Fall air finally blew in and it was wonderful to be outside with the boys. We went to the state farmer’s market Saturday and Fall was evident there too. There were already rows and rows of pumpkins waiting to be chosen by little hands. I decided to wait on the carving pumpkins because I really want to take Jude to the pumpkin patch to pick out his pumpkin this year. However, I did buy enormous amounts of collard greens, apples, sweet potatoes, black beans, salsas, and more.

Practicing food photography with my point and shoot camera this week.

The good news is that I have now read the manual to my camera. Progress.

I never really paid much attention to photography before I started the blog, so I have come a long way these last couple months.

Monday: Black Bean Soup with Pepper Jack Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Cilantro Pesto

Tuesday: Pork Chops, Collard Greens, and Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday: Kate’s Spring Rolls

Thursday: Peach Salsa Chicken with Coconut Rice

Friday: Lasagna

When I go to the grocery store I also try and generate some ideas for snacks, breakfast, and lunch so we won’t go hungry the rest of the day either. Hungry toddlers can be picky so I try and have a range of things to offer him if [for example] apples aren’t his thing this week. You never know when they will switch gears on you!

Snack Ideas for Gluten-free Jude: Apples, Sweet Potato Fries, trail mix, bananas, yogurt w/gluten-free granola, raisins, gluten-free cookies, crackers/toast with peanut butter or veggie spread, or a package of natural fruit snacks

Breakfast Ideas: banana bread, Kate’s sweet potato muffins, bananas, eggs, or hot peanut butter quinoa, and [GF]CS Spiced Apple Pancakes

Lunch Ideas: leftovers or sandwiches on gluten-free bread with sweet potato fries and fruit

Baking: I don’t really have anything in mind yet, but I am in the mood to bake a cake! Ok, so I just found this cake to make at Lucullian Delights.
