Menu Plan Monday ~ June 17/13
Hi everyone, welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend and Father’s Day. My hubby worked all day which was a bummer but the kids and I went out to a church picnic and had a great time. I brought to the potluck a fun and easy dessert that looked so pretty in the pan. I whipped up a batch of brownies, cut them up and then put them on to skewers with some strawberries and marshmallows. Brownies Kabobs…it just doesn’t get much easier than that and they are perfect for a picnic.
For Father’s Day one of the gifts we got my husband was some Dad’s root beer and attached a fun printable to it. It got us all talking about how we call it pop here in Canada but in some parts of the US it’s called soda. So we’d love to know what you call it in your area?
Last week my favorite recipe was the Zippy BLT’s because really anything with bacon in it is a favorite of mine lol. What made them even more special was I finally found a great gluten free wrap substitute. I made my own! I purchased a tortilla press from Bed Bath and Beyond and used Maseca flour (corn) to create delicious wraps and they were so good. I was so happy.
I’m a big girl now:
I am almost 42 (next week is my birthday) and I just had my very first coffee drink last week! Can you believe it? I’m not a coffee drinker but last week I had to drive to the city by myself and knew I’d need a little kick to help me stay awake. Starbucks coffee it was! Oh my word, my light nonfat Mocha Cookie Crumble (with no whip) frap was absolutely delicious!! I loved it!! Why didn’t anyone tell me??? Ha!
