Before I launch into this week’s menu plan, I want to ask you all for some recipe suggestions!
I have a customer (and a wonderful, amazing friend) who is searching for some very specific types of recipes. Her son (an awesome little superstar) is on the Autism spectrum. As such, food is a wee bit of an issue for him, and his mum bought a TM in an effort to cook healthy variations on the textures he currently eats. Basically, we are looking for something crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Examples: fish cakes, vegetable fritters, bubble and squeak patties… Things rolled or able to be rolled/coated in breadcrumbs are fantastic! I am going to convert a few recipes for her over the next couple of weeks, but we could use all the suggestions we can get. Point us to your favourites! It would be so much appreciated. Thanks guys. 🙂
Now, let’s get started with the menu plan.
lunch: salami and veggie sticks for T; leftover carrot salad for me
breakfast: green smoothies
lunch: leftovers (soup, bagels, salad)
dinner: fish pie with GF pastry
essentials: oh, maybe some GF/DF/NF ‘oreos’ – I got in trouble for eating the rest while T was at preschool, oops! 😉
breakfast: CADA with sheep’s milk yoghurt and fresh juice
lunch: fennel salad
dinner: chick pea curry with mock rice and naan
dessert: banana caramel pie – Grampies (my dad) bought T a cookbook for Christmas, and T has decided he would like to make this for everyone! We might do a GF pastry instead of puff, though…
What is everyone else cooking? I love to see so many ideas being bounced around on the world wide web! Don’t forget to check out Quirky Cooking for extra ideas and inspiration if you haven’t planned your weekly menu yet. Those of you in Sydney, enjoy this wonderful thunderstorm! I hope everyone has a fantastic week. 🙂
