Menu Plan Monday – August 12, 2013

Welcome back for another menu plan from Angela’s Kitchen!  I am so glad to have you stop by.  Pull up a chair and let’s get start

Gluten Free Menu Swap-plumsCheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  Besides eating them fresh or as prunes, one of my favorite ways to eat plums is in Slow Cooker Plum-Balsamic Chicken.  I have also made prunes wrapped in bacon as an appetizer and I adore plum sauce for dipping.  Yum!  What is your favorite way to eat plums?


Freezer cooking plan for the week:  Corn dogs and Slow Cooker Plum-Balsamic Chicken will both be making their way into my freezer this week.

On to the menu plan!  ~ If you are interested on why I may have certain meals on certain days (slow cooker, freezer meals, and/or portable meals often end up on busier days), I have this week’s activities posted over at Angela’s Kitchen where you will also find a printable grocery list for the week’s dinner plan.  Stop by and say “Hi!”

The week’s breakfast options:  Apple Cider MuffinsChocolate Zucchini Bread, scrambled eggs with garden veggies, and melon.
