It was a better week this week! The Cauliflower Alfredo was surprising easy and actually a fairly big hit with everyone. We will be enjoying it again! I was so on top of cleaning out the fridge this week that it was almost scary by the weekend. Time to get cooking again!
The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over Gluten Free Goodness is Maple. We certainly love some maple syrup around here. I started shopping on amazon for mine so that I could get the Grade B (more vitamins and flavor) and now I love it even more. It’s a staple for the Princess and her pancakes/waffles and anything else she thinks she needs to dip. It is one of my favorite natural sweeteners. This week we’ll be using it in our breakfast for dinner when I make these Apple Cinnamon Waffles (using gluten-free flour mix, and adding a bit more flour to get the right batter texture) and I used quite a bit to make Apple Chunk Muffins from Peas and Thank You (blog no longer available).
This week I think I will double the breakfast for dinner to have some leftovers for the freezer. I might make some breakfast cookies too. We seem to have run out of quick breakfast options and that is not a good thing!
Buckwheat granola with strawberries and Apple Chunk Muffins from Peas and Thank You
Lunch: Lunch with the family. I had a veggie burger with spaghetti sauce, coleslaw, and veggie tray with ranch dressing dip. Everyone else had meatball subs with the same sides.
For dessert we celebrated my mom’s birthday with a cheesecake from a local goat farm and I made some mini vegan cheesecakes for myself.
Dinner: Maybe Broccoli apple soup or fish, bread, roasted beets with balsamic vinegar, chocolate covered strawberries
Breakfast for dinner: Waffles with bacon for everyone else. I will top mine with nuts and/or almond butter.
Some soup from the freezer either veggie or chili!
Fish Chowder (using coconut milk instead of heavy cream)
