The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is fennel. I don’t think I’ve ever used fresh fennel, and I didn’t see any at the farmer’s market this past weekend. I know I’ve used dried to help season sausage when I used to make it, but otherwise I am not sure how to use it. I’m looking forward to some tips from others because it’s always interesting to try new things!
This weekend was all about carving pumpkins! It was even delightfully cool a couple of evenings so it almost felt like fall! I’m adding in another fall/winter favorite to our menu rotation this week–our favorite clam chowder! I’ve also discovered that cooking our meals goes a lot more smoothly if I make a big salad/soup for the week. That way if my husband and daughter have a sandwich or a hotdog I already have a quick option available. Last week’s lentil potato salad was so yummy and FILLING!
