Menu Monday May 23-30

First our recap - We went strawberry picking and ate strawberries galore this past week. Most of the them went straight into the people with no cooking or prep involved. I did make the Spinach and Strawberry Salad again as well as Strawberry ice cream. We love homemade ice cream around here and as the weather heats up it gets featured as the dessert of choice much more often. To make the ice cream I use coconut milk and simply substitute it one for one for the milk in the ice cream recipe. Because I am using coconut milk rather than a cream I choose recipes that start with a custard base and never use a recipe that requires evaporated milk or sweetened condensed milk. If you do not have an ice cream maker I strongly recommend getting one. Making ice cream at home is so much fun and the taste is much fresher.

And speaking of fresh, the lasagna turned out incredible. To me it was the best I have ever made. I added fresh basil as well as the sneaky kicks. It was such a fresh welcome flavor, I wanted to never stop eating it and did not mind in the slightest that there was no real cheese.

And now for this week's menu

  1. You mention "if you do not have an ice cream maker"... I'm wondering how you get the consistency right. Thanks!

  2. Jennifer - I was not clear. I went back and edited the post to recommend getting an ice cream maker

  3. Ah-ha! We have one (somewhere) but it's dairy... I guess we could make a pareve ice cream in it anyway, just not serve it on the meat dishes.
