Menu Plan August 30

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Join us at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting again this week, but with watermelon as the theme. We like it simply cold and sliced. We’ll skewer large cubes of it this week for Fruit Kabobs. Find other gluten-free menus this week at Gluten Free Goodness. The rules, the current and upcoming schedule, and links to past roundups can be found at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap Headquarters.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

MondayEgg & Hashbrown Casserole
Making a casserole with eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, green onions, etc., so we can have leftovers for breakfast the rest of the week. I’ll let the kids make Fruit Kabobs with watermelon, cantaloupe, and grapes to serve with it.

TuesdayRoasted Chicken
Roasting a chicken in a clay pot. Serving with corn on the cob and mashed sweet potatoes.

Wednesday – Flank Steak
Marinated flank steak grilled and served with steak fries and steamed broccoli.

Thursday – Leftover Buffet
Clearing the leftovers out of the refrigerator.

Friday – Easy Garlic Shrimp
A quick and easy shrimp recipe that I think I’ll serve over Cilantro-Lime Rice instead of rice noodles.

Saturday – Egg Rolls
It’s been a while since I’ve made egg rolls. I make these with julienne vegetables and ground pork. Then, wrapped in rice paper, I fry them until golden brown. I’ll serve them with sticky rice and maybe even some gluten-free fortune cookies.

Sunday – Build your own Salad Night
I’ll try letting everyone make their own salad. I’ll set out lettuce, baby spinach and various chopped vegetables, and let everyone choose from the leftover protein (shrimp, chicken, steak) to add to it.

Love the idea of make your own salad. Have you ever tried baking the egg rolls? I’ve been tempted but haven’t yet given it a go.


[…] Carol Fenster’s new cookbook and so she’s sure to have a tasty week. Heather, of Celiac Family has a fun week planned. She’s making egg rolls, maybe even GF fortune cookies (sounds […]


Cheryl – No. I’ve never tried baking the egg rolls, but it’s certainly worth a try. I’m not sure how the rice paper would work. I’ll let you know how it goes if I try it this week.


I might have to try your spring roll recipe, they look delicious. I have used those rice paper wraps before but I haven’t tried frying them.


Sounds like another good week to me! Flank steak sounds really good right now, too. 😉 I like build-your-own-salad night, too. Those ingredients sound delicious. 🙂



Cheryl, I tried baking the egg rolls this weekend. It worked out great! They didn’t brown, but they did get a little crispy. My husband says he now prefers them baked. I like that you can get them all done at once in the oven, instead of frying a few at a time. I baked them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Because they were baked, they kept their heat longer, too. Thanks for the idea!
