Rhubarb – Menu Plan April 15

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Screen-Shot-2013-04-14-at-8.18.17-AMThe theme for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Rhubarb. I am not a big fan of rhubarb, but that’s probably only because I don’t usually have it around to eat. I don’t have a garden, and I haven’t seen it in the grocery stores yet this year. I’ve enjoyed it when paired with other fruits in jams and pies (like blueberry and strawberry). Lately, I’ve been thinking about trying to make Rhubarb muffins. I was delighted to see that Angela has a recipe for Rhubarb Streusel Muffins on her site. I’m anxious to give them a try, so I’ll be scouring the produce department to see if the rhubarb is available yet. If not, I may have to wait until the Farmers’ Market opens in May. This week, you will find the gluten-free menu roundup and more rhubarb recipes at Angela’s Kitchen.

My grandmother made an amazing strawberry rhubarb pie, but it’s not something I’ve had since I was quite small.
Love that Mexican chicken idea – I’m going to see how it works in my pressure cooker!

Samantha – I don’t have a pressure cooker, but I’d love to know how it works out if you try it.

Love, love, love everything you are serving this week. If only I lived closer, I would invite myself over for dinner every night! :)

Some groceries carry sliced rhubarb in the freezer section. That works in muffins, bars, coffee cakes and pies really well. In fact, sometimes I freeze some of my garden’s rhubarb, then make it into jam later when I have more time because it freezes so well.

Have a GREAT week, Heather!
