Butternut Squash Fries & GF Salad Challenge Days 6 & 7

Okay, so I am a little behind!  LOL!  I am catching up now!

Tonight for dinner I made these amazing Butternut Squash Fries.  I love Sweet Potato Fries, so I figured these would be right up my alley, and they were.  Best part?  Only 65 calories!!!!  We had them along with our pulled pork sammies [...]

Gluten-Free Salad Challenge Day #5

Today I came up with a bit of a twist on my salad.  I really wanted a salad, but I had leftover grilled chicken and cooked buckwheat that needed to be eaten.  I decided to combine it all into one huge cooked salad!  I had leftover veggies from the veggie tray, so I sauteed up [...]

Menu Plan ~ April 19, 2009 – April 25, 2009

Phew.  Busy week last week.  Things should be somewhat calmer this week.  No large cookouts to plan for or b-day cakes to bake.  ;)  It is finally getting warmer, though, so there is much to do in the flower beds to get ready to plant after Mother’s Day.  I can’t wait to get all of [...]

Snickerdoodle Birthday Cake

Jon’s 13th birthday was Friday and we had a family cookout for him on Saturday.  He had asked for a Snickerdoodle Cake, so I set off to take my sister’s recipe and use it with Pamela’s GF Classic Vanilla Cake Mix.  I followed the directions on the package for a cake in a 9 x [...]

One might think that I could be getting tired of my salad challenge, but I am not.  I am loving it!  I am putting things in my salad that I would not have put in before and that is great. I have a lot of great ideas for the upcoming week, too!

Today’s salad was [...]

Gluten-Free Salad Challenge Day #4

Saturday was a busy day.  We had Jon’s b-day cookout planned, so lots to do.  I did manage to squeeze in my salad challenge salad at lunch time, though.  I also had a salad with dinner at our cookout, though it was just mixed greens, spinach, mushroom, tomato & broccoli.  Still a salad. 

My [...]

Gluten-Free Salad Challenge Day #3

YUM…tonight’s salad was one of the best so far!  I didn’t get a pic b/c things were crazy here today, but just look at my list of yummy goodness:

 

~2 large handfuls of arugula & mixed Spring Mix

~ 2-3 oz piece of chicken breast marinated in Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

~1/4 cup buckwheat [...]

Gluten-Free Salad Challenge Day #2

I am so loving the salad challenge!  Today I had a salad for lunch that consisted of just spinach, grape tomatoes & pine nuts with a drizzle of Light Creamy French dressing.  This doesn’t really count in my salad challenge as it doesn’t meet all my “requirements“. 

For dinner I had a more hefty [...]
