The Weekly Menu April 18

Hi friends! So this is always my favorite time of the year! I love April and spring and it’s my birthday month, but most of all I love the Austin Food and Wine Festival. We’ve been going to this event before it became “this event” (it used to be local before C3 took it to the next level) and way before I ever knew anything about food blogging. My friends, my husband and I just love to taste the wines, sample the cocktails, eat the bites. 🍢🍡

As busy as we get and as much as our lives change, we still always seem to come together for this annual event. There are so many gluten free, dairy free options for me, too – some of the best bites in the city! I’ve learned so many tips and tricks from the amazing talks. But if I’m totally honest, my favorite part is late in the day when we’re nice and toasty and dancing to the awesome DJ Mel. Adult day drinking on a gorgeous day or two at a festival in Austin is kind of a must! 🍷🍸🍹

So the weekly menu plan is going to be super easy, because I’ve still got school going on and homework and end of the semester projects due!  So thank goodness I’ve got some stuff frozen that can be heated up and super easy go to recipes that Brett can easily put together.

Monday – Greek Salad 

Tuesday – Turkey Veggie Chili

WednesdayTurkey Meatballs, Marinara & Quinoa Pasta

ThursdayRoasted Chicken Tostadas with Homemade Salsa

Friday – Dinner Out

Saturday – Austin Food and Wine Festival

Sunday – Austin Food and Wine Festival

Have a great week everyone! And look for the fun pics on Insta!

Hi! I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
