The winter blues have hit me. My son’s been sick and I’ve been fighting something — cold, sinus infection, dry weather? Whatever it is, I need to get out of the house and get some sunshine! So, I’m heading to Florida at the end of the week. I’m hoping a few days of sunshine perks me up, and the travel doesn’t get me down. OK…that sounds like I’m being spontaneous and just flying off on a whim. Well, that’s not really the case. We’ve been planning to go back to Disney World for a while, and this month just happened to be a good opportunity for doing just that. That being said, I’ve kept our meals quick and easy this week because I’ve got some packing to do.
Pomegranate is the theme for the GF Menu Swap this week. Angela is hosting the roundup of menus at Angela’s Kitchen. I don’t use pomegranate much. Sometimes the crunchy seeds are just too much for me, so I opt for the juice over the fruit. A while back, I posted a recipe for a Blueberry-Pomegranate Martini that you might find interesting. At the end of that post you’ll find links to a variety of gluten-free recipes using pomegranate juice. This week, I’ll be adding pomegranate juice to my smoothies. If I’m feeling up to it, I may even make a cranberry-pomegranate sauce for the chicken and pork chops this week.
