From what I hear there are lots of folks like me with some stupid cold or something hanging around that we just can’t shake. It has definitely slowed me down but I’m not letting it stop me. This could be the last week of soccer season so that means 4-5 games this week or one every night. So my plan was to cook some of my menu over the weekend. This way as the week rolls on I’ll have food ready and others will only take a few minutes to fix. I also am making big pots of Chili and Soup so if I decide I’m just too tired to cook we can eat from those large pots all week. Not a creative mix if we do that but I know we’ll be getting real food made with ingredients I know and trust, not fast food.
Also this week I’m really excited to be sharing on Thursday Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free. This is an event as I mentioned before that was started by Naomi Devlin from Straight To Bed, Cake Free and Dried. There is always a theme and this one is Scared Silly. These are foods people were either scared to eat or cook but once they tried, realized it was silly to be scared. Sometimes these recipes even become family favorites.
Now just to give you a tease there are green things, brown things, red things, purple things, yellow things and some that have all of those colors. There’s even chicken feet! OK I’m scared and I think I might eat all of these recipes, well some I think I’m still scared of. Either way don’t miss these recipes being shared on Thursday!
Don’t forget that this week’s secret ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Pepitas! I can’t wait to hear the creative ways you use these in recipes.
