I made the Broccoli Orecchiette and Zucchini Salad from Jamie Oliver’s Meals in Minutes Cookbook.

I used gluten free pasta, and I omitted the broccolini, anchovies, and capers.  Instead of baby mozzarella balls, I used shredded mozzarella.  Instead of chiles, I used chili powder.  I didn’t make the broccoli paste.  Instead, I cooked its ingredients in a pan.  I also forgot to add the broccoli to the pasta water, so I steamed it in a pan.

Fresh herbs from my garden (thyme and mint)

Above:  The raw zucchini salad was quite good.

I served the broccoli pasta and zucchini salad with a chicken breast.

We were gifted with some wonderful baby clothes, blankets, cloth diapers, etc.  To organize and store them until they’re needed, I used large, clear stacking bins.  I divided the middle of each bin with a piece of cardboard.  Then, I sorted clothes by size.  I also had bins for blankets and towels/burp cloths, cloth diapers, wet bags, etc.

I love, love, love my cloth diaper stash!

I’m a huge blue box mac and cheese person.  I was happy to come across Annie’s Gluten Free Mac & Cheese.  I tried it and it was pretty good and reasonably similar to my blue box brand.  I will say that I it tastes the best freshly made, as opposed to heated up as leftovers.
