My Gluten Free, Locavore-ish Weekly Meal Plan, and What's Cookin' Sunday?

I've just gotten back from my weekly trip to the Farmers Market and have done up our Gluten Free, Locavore-ish Meal Plan for the week!  Like last week, this week's meal plan is pretty simple since I'm really focusing on finishing up the Oral Allergy Syndrome Cookbook and getting it all ready to go for printing.

I'm also really excited because this week I'll be experimenting with making Hot Cross Buns for National Hot Cross Buns Day. Gotta love these bizarre food holidays, right? So stay tuned for that.

Please check out last week's post on How and Why I Meal Plan {Gluten Free & Locavore-ish} if you're interested in the benefits of meal planning. I break down why meal planning helps save money and your sanity!

Homemade Fruit Leather is in the cupboard, ready for snacking

  1. It's been very humid this weekend, in Vegas. Yuck. I'm just going to stay in, watch some QVC and catch up on housework.
    Everything sounds so delicious.
    I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

    1. It's been horribly humid in Wisconsin, too! Today was finally a bit cooler and I didn't quite feel like melting when I stepped outside ;) Happy shopping and thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Thanks! I finally got around to making one since I decided to post my meal plans on the blog. Before they were, well... kinda messy ;)

  3. I wasn't sure about the steamed kale until I saw the picture. That will be on my table sometime soon.

    The GF Veg Potpie sounds interesting too.

    1. Steamed kale makes for great salads! I find it too much work to chew raw (unless you marinate/rub it), but it's so nutritious I want to eat it all the time :) And the potpie is one of my new favorites.


I'd love to hear from you so go ahead, leave a comment!
