It was a rough week last week. My little princess was sent home sick from school early on Monday and it was rough finding a routine for the rest of the week! Thankfully, she was back to school by Thursday and still seems to be doing well. I knew sending her to preschool would help boost her immune system, but I didn’t expect to get started so early!
The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is olives! I love olives. Maybe it was growing up in Portugal or maybe just inherited, but I love any olive, anywhere, anytime. In fact, when all of us kids got married we had a hard time convincing our spouses that yes, 3 or 4 cans of black olives for Thanksgiving was not over the top. They would probably all get eaten and they usually did. This week I’m making Vegan Tuna-Less Nicoise Salad with olives. I do enjoy having them on top of my weekly pizza, on any salad I make, and just as a side several times a week.
This week is a busy week and next week is even more busy! Work and school keep us hopping and my favorite morning Bible study is starting up again for the fall semester. The breakfast choice for this week is Healthy Oatmeal GF pancakes using quinoa flakes instead of oats. I will probably be making another batch of Buckwheat Granola just to make sure I have enough quick easy breakfasts before we go running out the door.
Breakfast: We don’t make desserts very often around here, but in the fall I usually find a few desserts that I want to try. I cut back on the sugar and make them for breakfast and everyone is happy! This morning we had this Apple Crisp. It wasn’t my favorite, so I’ll be making another apple crisp and posting the recipe here soon!
Lunch: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, roasted beets
Supper: if hungry, snacks!
Rest of the week:
Healthy Oatmeal GF Pancakes
Yogurt/toast for the dairy eaters
cereal in a pinch
Sloppy Joes (Lentil Sloppy Joes for me!)
Zucchini & Potato bake (with a side of chicken breast for the meat eaters)
Breakfast for dinner! I didn’t get the pancakes made ahead this week, so we’ll be having the Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes and then having the leftovers for breakfast the rest of the week.
sandwiches maybe with this chocolate shake?
Vegan Tuna-Less Nicoise Salad
Potato Chip Fish, remoulade sauce, sweet potato fries, roasted beets cooled and topped with balsamic vinegar and sea salt
Smoothie (this was delightful!), Popcorn
