Gluten Free Dairy Free August 2012 Menu
I know it has been hot, hot, hot and we are only part-way through summer but, believe it or not, school time is just around the corner. This menu features seasonal produce so you can use all those great summer veggies available right now while helping you prepare meals for your family as we look toward heading back into the busy fall schedule.
The Gluten Free Dairy Free August 2012 Menu contains a month’s worth of delicious, family-pleasing, meals to make ahead so that you’re ready for whatever this month has in store. The menu takes advantage of the season’s bounty and grocery sales in the month of August. During August we see a lot of “back-to-school” items on sale, so be sure to stock up early if you can. For produce, avocados, basil, beans, onions, peaches, raspberries, summer squashes, and tomatillos all are at their peak along with tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. With two high schoolers and an elementary kiddo, you know that freezer meals are one of my secrets to getting dinner on the table when school starts up. Cook up a few meals to help you enjoy and relax the rest of summer. I hope it is a great one!
For a detailed explanation of what is involved in creating the gluten free dairy free menu we have a post explaining it all. If you are new and not sure how to get started we have a wonderful series starting with 5 easy steps to get you on your way to once a month cooking. Good luck!

Are you a person that likes to see the menus visually? Perhaps you should check out the August 2012 Gluten Free Dairy Free Menu via Pinterest to see the yummy goodness you will be cooking up on this menu. Not sure what Pinterest is all about, check out what Once A Month Mom has to say about it.
Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! If you are interested in test cook, feel free to volunteer. Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:
- Jessica Francis - I am a work at home single homeschooling mom of a wonderful 8 year old boy. We love once a month cooking because it is the one day we spend every single second together with no other activities – and then the rest of the month we can prepare a variety of healthy yet quick meals for a growing boy and a busy mom. Our homeschooling blog is Montessori Trails - http://montessoritrails.blogspot.com
