It's been weeks since I've planned some menus. I really have missed having them to fall back on! I tried to come up with some easy things this week since Easter is at the end of the week.
This weeks swap is being hosted by Sea over at Book of Yum. Please check out her colorful blog. I love her vegetarian recipes with all the beautiful pictures.
Coconut flour is made from the meat of ground coconut after the oil has been extracted. It is high in fiber, high in protein, gluten free and low in carbs. You can replace up to 20% of the flour called for in a recipe with coconut flour, adding an equivalent amount of liquid to the recipe. Coconut flour is very absorbent.
I can't wait to try more things with this flour. If you have used this with success, please share what you have learned about it with me by leaving a comment.

If you are invited to someones home and you are the only company, talk to your host. Offer to bring with you the things that would involve buying lots of special ingredients, like bread or dessert.
Where it will get awkward is when someone asks us to their home that I do not know well. That has not happened yet, but I know it will. This is all a process of learning and adjusting. I'm sure I will figure this out as well.
Wishing you all a most joyful Easter!
