I completely missed posting a menu plan last week as we were all sick. We mostly ate a BRAT diet–Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. Lots and lots of toast. The poor Princess is still coughing and yucky, but at least I’m back to cooking! I got better before the others and I can definitely say I don’t enjoy cooking for myself. After a smoothie and popcorn one night, eggs and potatoes another night, and broccoli and tomatoes another night I was bored!
The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is eggs. I am quite fond of eggs and will eat them almost any way you can think of. My favorite boiled egg recipe is this broiled toast/English muffin version, but I am also fond of shirred eggs with potatoes. We usually have eggs for breakfast at least once a week.
Since the Princess has been so sick, we have been focused on passing her around and keeping her entertained so she doesn’t get bored or overheated and can work on healing. Not a whole lot of cooking going on, just some catching up on cleaning and laundry!

For Easter Sunday we’re invited out. I will be bringing my mom’s favorite salad and maybe something else.
