Welcome to this week’s edition of My Week on Wednesday… where I take a few minutes to share some of the things I did, and learned throughout the week. And some of the blogs I visited and articles I read.
It’s spring! The season of mud is upon us. Flowers will start blossoming soon! Gardens will happen. Amazing as that might seem when looking at the still snow-crusted space that is supposed to house strawberries and lavender and thyme.
Chocolate Zucchini Bread. I can’t wait until summer and zucchini are exploding all over the place! This recipe happens to be gluten free, with a vegan option.
Cream of NOT Wheat Cereal. I’m not gonna lie. I love Cream of Wheat. My mom used to make it on the weekends (and smother it with that corn syrup laden maple syrup-like product) and it was better than Lucky Charms. I do NOT love the idea of a big bowl of wheat gluten–even if you’re not gluten intolerant, this is a Bad Idea.
So check out that Cream of Not Wheat recipe, which is gluten free. Maybe with some real maple syrup. Or jam!
I didn’t come up with jam idea by myself. I got it from Little Big Harvest’s Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal. Personally, I cannot eat peanut butter before 10 in the morning (due to a Tragic Peanut Butter Incident that occurred in my youth), but my kids think this sounds like an excellent idea. And for the unscarred, I’m sure it is!
Finally: Beefy Cauliflower One-Dish Meal. She totally had me at “one dish,” and this sounds really delicious. I would probably use ground venison, because we have a lot of it still, but this dish is already on my rotation! 🙂
Hi! I’m Christine… the country girl turned city mom. And welcome to Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers.
Come join me on my journey through life… trying to learn, or possibly relearn, things my great-grandmother would have just known. Cooking from scratch, canning and preserving, cleaning without chemicals, finding the rhythm in the seasons and dancing with it.
