Weekly Menu Plan ~ August 2, 2009

It is August!!!  Holy moley, time flies!!  This week I am hosting the Gluten-free Menu Swap!  I chose cherries as my featured ingredient.  I adore cherries and have been eating them like crazy this summer.  You can find great info on cherries on Wikipedia.  I have used cherries in many different ways this year.  I top my salads with them, I eat them in yogurt, I eat them in cereal, I eat them in ice cream, I eat them straight out of the bag.  Last week I had planned on making a cherry cake, but ended up making Blueberry Chia Muffins instead because I had blueberries that needed to be used up.  What is your favorite way to eat or use cherries? 


This week is Hannah’s birthday!  She will be 7 on Thursday!!  Again, time flies!!  We had a family cookout yesterday for her and she will have a small party for her friends from school this coming weekend.  Talk about a full week of b-day fun!

Sunday ~ Rotisserie Chicken, red quinoa, grilled corn-on-the-cob & salad

Monday ~ Barbeque chicken breasts, Garlic Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, broccoli & salad.

Tuesday ~ Tacos, black beans, corn & salad (I am going out with my gal friend!)

Wednesday ~ Grilled Salmon, grilled asparagus & sweet potatoes, grilled pineapple & salad. Cherry Cake for dessert.
