Fall officially begins this week, and I am already feeling the effects of cooler nights, shorter days, and ragweed season. And yet the desire to slow down and relax is met with the excitement of fall activities and a schedule that is quickly filling up. School schedules, after-school schedules, and homework are already keeping us busy. And, I have to admit that I am already thinking about the holiday activities that aren’t too far off!
With Sweet potatoes as the theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week, I’m reminded of our holiday meals that usually include a sweet potato casserole. Amanda at Gluten Free Detroit Metro is hosting the swap this week, so head over there for the roundup of sweet potato meal ideas. We’ll be eating sweet potato fries this week. My kids haven’t become big fans of sweet potatoes yet, but they aren’t big fans of white potatoes unless they’re French fries. So, maybe this week, I’ll try frying the sweet potato fries until they’re crispy. Baking them hasn’t gotten a very good response.
On Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
Tuesday - Baked Salmon served with steamed asparagus and leftover rice.
Wednesday - Hamburgers served with sweet potato fries and green peas.
Thursday - Chili and cornbread
Friday - Pizza with a tossed green salad
Saturday – Eating Out
