Menu Plan Tuesday, April 7!


Happy Easter! Since I neglected to take a picture of food this week, here’s one of my daughter before her spring program! She is dressed to represent the country she did her report on: Portugal. Since it is too difficult to find an authentic Portuguese costume, she is wearing the colors of the Portuguese flag, along with a shawl worn as an apron borrowed from her grandmother.

Program Night

The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is arugula! I love arugula in salads, and a couple of weeks ago I tried this stir fry with arugula in it and absolutely loved it. I tend to eat a lot of spinach, but it’s nice to add in some different greens like arugula.

I didn’t get this post up yesterday because I was baking our bread for the week! We also made some Breakfast Cookies which the Princess really enjoyed having for breakfast this morning.

Scrambled eggs with bacon, english muffin with dairy free cream cheese from Trader Joes. (It tasted JUST like a cheese danish!)
At Mom’s house: ham, green beans, jello salad, potato salad, carrot salad, cole slaw, apple sauce, and Easter Egg shaped sugar cookies decorated by the Princess
Snacky things

Rest of the week:
Cherry Banana Smoothie (only since I didn’t label the things in my freezer I mistook my cherries for blueberries and ate them all…so we’ll have blueberries instead of cherries this week!)
Breakfast Cookies
Simple Rice Pudding
Chocolate Hazelnut Bread

Black Bean and Potato Nacho Plate
Dutch Baby Pancake (made gluten-free and dairy free!)
Easy Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken (except with Pork!)
Macaroni Salad
Pizza, salad

Healthy Dessert: Chunky Monkey Ice Cream
