Just a lonely little menu!

I love writing things I am passionate about or what is on my little mind when I post my menus but I am totally focused on getting my photo project up to date on here that I am just going to post my menu this week.  I am trying a new recipe with gnocchi this week.  I have never cooked with I hoping that it goes well.  It's always so exciting yet scary to try new things in the kitchen.


MONDAY:  Creamy Spring Asparagus Soup and Strawberry Spinach Salad (I sprinkled crumbled goat cheese on top of the salad)

TUESDAY:  Breakfast Burritos with black beans & kale

WEDNESDAY:  Out to dinner with some awesome family!

THURSDAY:  Homemade pizza with a green salad

FRIDAY:  leftovers

SATURDAY:  Picnic!!! Hummus & Veggie Wraps,  Parmesan Cheese Spread w/ baguette, and pineapple.

SUNDAY:  Kale Pesto Gnocchi **I am going to add organic cherry tomatoes and grated parmesan cheese to this recipe.**

What are you cooking this week?

Happy cooking!

  1. Hi Alyson,
    I hope you'll love gnocchi as much as we do here in Italy.


    (I think I've fallen for parmesan cheese spread instead!)


    1. Singlemama....You know after all this time...I don't know your real name. I went looking on your blog and I couldn't find it. I would love to know it. I am excited to try gnocchi. Do you have any tips on cooking it? Doesn't that parmesan cheese spread look AMAZING??

      Thanks for stopping by!


    2. oh!
      my real name is Francesca.
      but on my blog somewhere I'm Franny. :)

      How were the gnocchi?
      I'm afraid I'm a bit late for the tips on cooking.
      Anyway they're ready when the float.

      And they are gorgeos with simple tomato sauce, basil and mozzarella.

      (I love stopping by!)
