Menu Plan Monday – August 19, 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 started.

Gluten Free Menu Swap-apple

Melissa at Mom’s Plans is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  She has picked apples for this week’s theme.    Yum!  My family goes apple picking every fall (one of my very favorite things to do).  I can’t wait for this year’s trip.  It is so fun to make apple sauce, apple pies to tuck in the freezer, and Caramel Apples after we go.  I do have a few other recipes that use apples, like Cinnamon Apple Waffles, Whole Grain Apple Cardamom Biscotti, Baked Apple Oatmeal, Apple Pie Dip (this is so good!), Coffee Cake in a Mug with diced apples, Apple Cider Muffins, Juicy Apple Turkey Burgers, Apple Slaw, Apple, Bok Choy and Carrot Slaw, Pork Roast with Apples and Pears, Apple Strussel MuffinsMorning Glory Muffins, Apple Barbeque Sauce, Slow Cooker Baked Apples, Red Cabbage-Apple Slaw, Pork and Apple Curry, Fruit Juice Sweetened Ketchup, and also Homemade Fruit Rollups or Fruit Leather.  What is your favorite way to eat apples?  Do you have a favorite variety?


Freezer cooking plan for the week:  Apple Cider MuffinsZucchini and Walnut MuffinsSalmon and Sweet Potato Cakes, and Cinnamon Apple Waffles will all be making their way into my freezer this week to prepare for back to school time.
