Menu Plan Apr. 5

Posted By Heather On April 6, 2010 @ 1:03 am In Menu Plan | 5 Comments



This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted at Angela’s Kitchen [3]. Angela’s theme ingredient this week is coconut. My husband and I have never been big fans of shredded coconut. However, I have been using coconut milk in recipes recently. Since I have trouble with lactose, I’ve been trying to use it to replace milk in some of our recipes. So far, we have both liked the switch. I have used it in Chicken Tikka Masala [4] to replace the cream, and most recently in my dairy-free recipe for Chocolate Creme Brulee [5]. Both yielded very good results.

For more gluten-free recipes, be sure to visit Angela’s Kitchen [3] to see what other gluten-free friends are making for dinner this week. She and others have more ideas for incorporating coconut into recipes!

Next week, I’ll be hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap with eggs as the theme ingredient. So come on back on Monday to link up your menus, share a recipe, or just see what we’re cooking with eggs. Thanks to Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness [6] for continuing to organize this fun and helpful event. If you’d like to find out more about the Gluten Free Menu Swap, host future events, or check out past round-ups, visit the current GF Menu Swap headquarters [7] on her site.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday – Tri-tip Roast
We are still enjoying time with family. My sister graciously offered to convert her dinner recipes to make it gluten-free for us. She made a wonderful roast with vegetables and Betty Crocker gluten-free brownies [8] for dessert.

Tuesday – Easy Garlic Shrimp Pasta [9]
Some nights are just calling for a quick and easy recipe. Shrimp is quickly sauteed with butter and garlic and served over rice noodles. Serving with roasted asparagus [10].

Wednesday – Rotisserie Chicken
Another busy night, so I’ll be picking up a rotisserie chicken for dinner and serving with steamed broccoli.

Thursday – Parmesan Chicken Nuggets [11]
Chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces and breaded with gluten-free bread crumbs and grated Parmesan, then baked. Serving with French fries and a tossed green salad.

Friday – Baked Salmon with a Balsamic Glaze [12]
Baking salmon with a glaze made of balsamic vinegar and garlic. Serving with rice and leftover asparagus.

Saturday – Pupusas and Spicy Slaw [13]
I think it’s time to make pupusas [13] again. I’ll be filling them with refried beans and cheese, and serving with spicy slaw.

Sunday – Leftover Buffet
Last chance to eat up what’s left in the refrigerator.
