Oranges – Menu Plan May 6

By · Print This Post Print This Post

OrangeI hope everyone had a nice weekend, and is starting to enjoy warmer weather. The theme for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Orange. I am trying some new recipes for this week’s dinners that include orange segments, orange marmalade, and orange juice.

And, since Mother’s Day is on Sunday, I thought I’d share a couple recipes with orange juice that you might like to prepare for brunch on Sunday: Poppy Seed Bread and Tropical Mimosas. 🙂

Don’t forget to check out the Gluten-Free Menu Swap roundup below for more gluten-free menus, recipe links, and perhaps meal ideas with oranges and orange flavors.

Awesome! We’re not gluten free, but love to see all the options that are available. My cousin has to eat Gluten free and they are finding it difficult.
