Menu Plan March 14

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week with my favorite theme: Quick and Easy! I do like preparing good, healthy food for my family, but I don’t often have a lot of time for a complicated meal. And since my five- and seven-year-olds are still in the stage of preferring to eat plain foods, simple works best for them. I do have to take a break from the plain food now and again to please the palates of myself and my husband, but even then I often find short cuts to make them quick and easy. I may prepare ingredients in advance of meal time, use a Slow Cooker, or choose quick-cooking foods. But probably my favorite short cut is using up the leftovers.

Here are a few of my favorite quick and easy meals that aren’t on this week’s menu:

Oh, those potato farls look good. I’ve been making Amy’s socca pizza crusts in my cast iron skillet, but may have to try those soon.


I don’t know that I’ve seen farls before. those look fantastic! thanks for the picture rundown, and have a great week.


I’m with everyone else … potato farls? They look fantastic! Those are new to me … can’t wait to check them out.

Have a great week, Heather!


Wendy – I’ve got the socca pizza crusts on my list to try, too. Did you have good luck with them?


Shirley – They are a great way to use up some leftover mashed potatoes, that is, if you ever have any leftovers. 🙂


Cheryl – Potato farls are great – like potato pancakes.


Heather-We’ve had the socca crusts four times. I’d say that is very good luck. We love them. I’ve used them for pizza night twice and as flatbread with a little pesto and a sprinkle of cheese to go with a soup dinner.


Oh that sounds great, Wendy. I’ve got to get some Garbanzo flour to try it. Maybe next week. Thanks.


I’m with everyone else on the farls. Great to see your week ahead in pics!
