Menu Plan Monday: Peaches! and a big thanks

Posted Aug 16 2009 10:07pm


This is really the time of year for luscious, juicy peaches (at least in this hemisphere!) so I’m eagerly awaiting all of your yummy peach recipes and suggestions.  We had a peach crumble this afternoon which was delicious and couldn’t have been easier.  So…get thee to a Farmer’s market!  Unless you’re lucky enough to have your very own peach tree.  Which I do, actually.  And the birds do seem to enjoy perching on it, but it has yet to bear edible fruit.  Next year, hopefully!

This is going to be a crazy baking week, because two of my favorite people have their birthdays one day apart AND have totally different tastes in food, or there would just be one jinormous cake.  But between the brownies and the cake should both be fun…

I was pleasantly and unexpectedly surprised to get positive feedback from two places this week.  Lauren, of Celiac Teen was kind enough to include me in her One Lovely Blog list.  If you’re not familiar with Lauren’s site, she’s a Daring baker and always has a great photo essay to go along with her cooking creations.

So here are a few blogs that I’m tagging:

  • Wendy, of Celiacs in the house because I love her photos and menus
  • Heather, of Celiac Family, who always has such great info
  • Angela, who always impresses me with her busy schedule and her freezer recipes
  • Kim, of Gluten free is Life.   She always has great recipes, but I particularly liked her “ Operation Beautiful ” post, which I thought was particularly lovely.
  • Shellyfish of Musings from the Fishbowl who always has such great pictures of foods and crafts.
  • and Kelly of the Spunky Coconut, whose blog I just found by chance. I did buy her cookbook, though, and am saving it as a “pick me up” for a grumpy day…I kid you not. I haven’t tried the recipes yet, but am eager.

My blog was also included in a list of nutrition blogs in their Gluten Free section, and I was quite honored! There were quite a few non GF that I wasn’t familiar with, so it was interesting.

So, on with the food!!!
Dinner: Grilled peppers and rubbed chicken
Turkey and celery in a chestnut sauce
Curried collards and chickpeas
Baked rosemary salmon and steamed artichokes
out to dinner–DH’s birthday

Baked goods:

  • there will be a massive chocolate hazelnut cake for DH
  • ooey gooey brownies
  • meringue cookies

From my garden:
basil, thyme, parsley
peppers–red and green

From the market:

And what about everyone else??

We’ve got Kim joining us from Gluten Free is Life for a variety of yummy looking options, like honey lentils and mexican pizzas using avocado.  She loves peaches, too and wants to make a peach cobbler.  Not only that, but she shares some tips in a “back to school” post.

Elizabeth of A modern Gal has a great line up, with interesting options like a tomato peach salad (I’m intrigued!)  Her low sugar granola also looks intriguing.
