GAPS Menu Plan, Week 5

Well, last week was pretty great.  We had some great recipe successes, and some good family time.

This post will have to be written fast as I have a fussy, teething baby who keeps waking up and wanting to nurse.  So here are the highlights, and then on to the menu plan.

Highlights:

This coconut flour pizza crust turned out fantastic!  Everyone enjoyed it.  It was nice and thin, with a great texture, and didn’t become soggy   under the toppings.  We’ll definitely be using it again!

Thursday, Hubby and I celebrated our ninth anniversary, and I made this yellow coconut cake with cocoa buttercream frosting.  It was fantastic.  Everybody loved it, and to my surprise, it was nice and moist and non-crumbly, even though the only flour used is coconut flour.  Yum!

Friday night, I had planned to use spaghetti squash for GAPS “spaghetti”, but couldn’t find any.  So I came up with these baked Italian meatballs…and all three of us enjoyed them.  That was a relief.  It’s not hard to find something that Hubby and I enjoy, but when Little Guy loves it too…believe me, it stays on the menu.

So without further ado, here’s this week’s menu.

Sunday–Breakfast: leftover coconut flour banana bread, fruit, cheese; Lunch: Leftovers (we ended up with lots of leftovers this week!); Dinner: cheese omelets, smoked apple sausage, oranges
