Menu Plan August 15

By · Print This Post Print This Post

This week, the Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted at In My Box. Zucchini and other summer squash is the theme ingredient. I don’t have a lot of recipes to share with you. Occasionally, I make a chocolate chip zucchini bread that is really good. But usually, zucchini is cooked simply at my house: sliced, brushed with olive oil and grilled; or sliced and lightly sauteed on the stove. This week I may try serving our shrimp dish over sauteed zucchini strips or ribbons instead of rice noodles.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

MondayChicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde
Using slow-cooked Mexican chicken to make enchiladas with a green sauce. Serving with Cilantro Rice.

TuesdayCheeseburgers
Making cheeseburgers without buns and serving with sweet potato fries and steamed green beans.

WednesdayEating Out
Probably eating at Chick-fil-a. The kids get a grilled chicken fillet without the bun, a fruit cup and waffle fries. I like their grilled chicken and fruit salad with spicy dressing.

Thursday – Leftover Buffet
Two no-cook nights in a row!

Friday – Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
Marinating sirloin strips and stir-frying with broccoli, mushrooms, bean sprouts, celery, etc. and serving over rice.

Saturday – Easy Garlic Shrimp
Making a fast and easy garlic shrimp dish and serving over rice noodles.

Sunday – Lamb Chops
Trying something new. Hopefully getting my husband to make his famous garlic mashed potatoes to serve with it.

Love the idea of chocolate chip zucchini bread! And, quite frankly, I’ve done way too many no cook nights lately and SO have to get back on the ball.
