Menu Plan Monday ~ Aug 3/15

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Aug 3/15 - easy recipe links and menu planning inspiration

Hi friends!  How are you this week? My week started out on Monday with a trip to the ER with my youngest (9).  He fell at our local water park and gouged his knee pretty good.  So good in fact that he needed nine stitches.  Oy!  He can’t really bend his knee at all so it definitely put a damper on doing any fun outdoor activities with Granny & Grandpa who were visiting. They made up for it though by playing at least a million and one card games :)

Yesterday I made some Gluten-Free Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes for my gluten, dairy and egg free son (15) and realized that I had originally posted the recipe on my blog in 2008 (!) and it desperately needed a picture upgrade.  So I took some new pictures of them and updated my post if any of you are interested.  Even my non-allergic family members love these!

Gluten Free Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes (also dairy and egg free)

Have a great week y’all!
