Menu Plan Dec 28

menu-swap-009I’m looking forward to a relaxing week. We had a wonderful holiday week, but now activities have definitely slowed down at our house. I’m slowly trying to reclaim my house that still has gifts, toys, games, and bits of wrapping paper scattered all over the house. So, maybe it won’t be as relaxing as I’m hoping because as I’m writing this I’m realizing all of the house cleaning that needs to get done. Well, however it turns out, here’s the menu I’m planning for this week.

Starting out the week by cleaning out the refrigerator and eating up the leftovers.

Tuesday – Spaghetti Bake
My husband says he’d like to make a baked spaghetti dish. So, I think that means cooked spaghetti topped with a meaty spaghetti sauce and mozzarella, then baked in the oven. We’ll serve it with gluten-free garlic bread and a tossed green salad.

Wednesday – White Chicken Chili (aka Chili Blanco)
Making a chili with chicken and Mexican spices. Serving with arepas.

Thursday – Easy Garlic Shrimp
Shrimp cooked quickly with butter and garlic. Serving over flat rice noodles.

Friday – Chicken Tacos
Shredded Mexican chicken cooked in a slow-cooker for tacos. Serving with corn tortillas, chopped lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, black olives, and guacamole.

Saturday – Cheeseburgers
Serving cheeseburgers with Red Potato and Green Bean Salad.

Sunday – Parmesan Tilapia
This white fish recipe is very quick and easy. The fish is topped with a Parmesan sauce, which also tastes great on vegetables. Serving with broccoli and fingerling potatoes.

  • Check out this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap, hosted at The GFCF Cookbook this week. I’m looking forward to what they have in mind for the theme of ham. I don’t usually have leftover ham. It quickly gets eaten up for sandwiches and snacks. However, I do love to add it to (GF) Macaroni and Cheese, on the rare occasion that I make that. Of course it’s also good in soups and a host of other foods. Add your own ideas or check out what other gluten-free cooks are sharing at the weekly round-up.
  • Laura at hosts Menu Plan Monday every week. You’ll find links to hundreds of meal plans (not necessarily gluten-free) there.

Happy New Year, Heather! All your dishes sound great, but I really love the sound of the shrimp and the fish. 🙂



That parmesan tilapia sounds really good. I have some in the freezer, so I will be trying this out soon. I just wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy New Year and invite you to join me each week for Crock Pot Wednesday. I hope you can make it this week. Mister Linky will be up by Tuesday evening.
