Menu Plan Monday, February 2!

Standard


Woohoo! January is over! It seems like January is the longest month of the year. Seriously. It was so helpful cooking all the week’s meals in 1-2 days last week. It was also helpful having some sandwich options like the Curried Chickpea Wraps and Veggie Sandwiches. I had forgotten how useful sandwiches are!

The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is cauliflower! I don’t actually have any cauliflower on my menu this week, but I am frequently amazed by this awesome vegetable. It can take on so many different tastes. I am a fan of this dairy free alfredo sauce with cauliflower and the idea of adding it to mashed potatoes from the Oh She Glows Cookbook! (I didn’t tell anyone that I added it to the mashed potatoes and they were the fastest disappearing mashed potatoes ever, even by the pickiest people I’ve ever met!) I also like it roasted and gladly eat the whole pan by myself since no one else around here eats it roasted.

    • It is delightful! The first time I made it no one was around and they gobbled it up…second time I made the mistake of making it while they were watching and it wasn’t as well received!

    • Thanks Kate! I have yet to try it….I guess because it sounds so different from what I usually eat for breakfast, but I like all the components so it should be good right? Thanks! Hope you have a wonderful week also!
