This week is a short but sweet menu plan. There are all sorts of goings on, what with the big 2nd grade play for C and little T at home today and more demanding than ever – roll on Kindergarten!
The menu plan this week is being hosted by Angela’s Kitchen and her chosen theme is Celebrations.
We had a ton of birthday celebrations this paste weekend and I helped C celebrate by making him the amazing gluten-free sugar donuts from the wonderful Cooking for Isaiah cookbook. Silvana Nardone has rock star status in our house. I think I’ve mentioned this before. Am starting to sound like a record whose needle has stuck. Doing that a lot these days… Rather than just talk about how wonderful she is, I have put my money where my mouth is and have selected to ‘adopt’ Silvana for this months adopt a gluten-free blogger event over at the Book of Yum. The sugar-and-spiced donuts were the first thing on the list of recipes to make and document. There are more this week. My menu plan is based around the things in her cookbook that C has earmarked and has wanted me to make for an age.
Monday: Spaghetti and Meatballs from Silvana’s book. Am hoping to whip these up while C is at baseball practice.
Tuesday: Oven-Fried Frito Chicken Fingers, from Silvana’s book – served with mixed veg.
Wednesday: Fried Sole with Creamy Lemon-Pickle Relish from Silvana’s book – again.
Thursday – C’s 2nd grade play: We’ll go out for tacos beforehand with friends. Exiting! He has a big role.
Friday: If we’ve polished off all left-overs, then it’ll be peperoni pizza (also featured in Silvana’s book).
