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.
