Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of September 4th

Last week was a fun adventure in adding some new grains to our diet. While I am always excited to try new foods and recipes, my family isn't usually as excited as I am. I do have to say they are good troopers, but I have to add new things to our diet a little at a time. That being said I didn't make the millet cakes last week but will be making them this week. I'd love to add some buckwheat, spelt and quinoa to the menu. If you took a look at Becca's post that I referenced last week. You know that all the grains have properties unto themselves. I would love to know the properties that go with buckwheat, spelt and quinoa. If you know or can point me in the right place to look please leave me a comment.
