Menu Plan Monday ~ April 28/14

Menu Plan Monday April 28/14
Welcome back to another Menu Plan Monday!

It’s the week of May, it’s the week of May!  I’m so happy we will welcome in the first of May on Thursday.  I simply cannot wait because I’m hoping  the warm weather will come with it 🙂

As many of you know I have a 14 year old son who has severe food allergies to gluten, dairy, eggs, fish and nuts.  I’m always looking for recipes to make for him that are free of what he cannot have.  Yesterday I made this amazing Gluten-Free & Vegan Banana Bread and it was so good.  It was moist and not crumbly at all.  Yum!

I hope you all have a fabulously organized week.  Creating a menu plan is a great place to start!

    We tried the pork schnitzel recipe that you recommended and it was a hit! My husband was not looking forward to it because he remembered not liking it as a kid, so he was really surprised to find that he loved it.

    Hooray for finding a delicious treat your son can enjoy! My oldest had a dairy allergy that she thankfully outgrew around the age of 10. It was always a joy to be able to find non-dairy pudding or ice cream that she could enjoy which wasn’t always easy to find in the small towns we lived in at the time.

      I love to hear success stories as we are still hopeful my son will outgrow some of his too. Thanks Janet!
