Menu Plan February 28

By · Print This Post Print This Post

This week the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted at In My Box with DIY/MYO (Do It Yourself/Make Your Own) ingredients. I wasn’t sure what exactly that meant, and how I was going to work that into my menu. So, I just started putting my menu together. Then, I realized that the bread crumbs for the chicken nuggets are definitely DIY. I use the ends of my GF bread, toast them, give them a whirl in my food processor, and they’re ready to use for bread crumbs. I store leftover bread crumbs in the freezer. You might also like the Parmesan Dressing I make for the Wild Rice Salad, or Kate’s Jalapeño-Popper Dip that I like to use as a spread to spice up sandwiches and burgers.

Don’t forget to check out what others are making for gluten-free dinners this week at In My Box. The Gluten-Free Menu Swap will be here next week with celery as the theme ingredient.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday - Pork Tenderloin with Wild Rice Salad

Wednesday - Parmesan Chicken Nuggets, Kale Chips

Thursday - Chicken Vindaloo over Rice

Friday - Cheeseburgers, Fries, Green Beans

Saturday - Baked Tilapia, Quinoa with Mushrooms


Sunday – Leftovers!

( I left Tuesday out of the line-up because we’ll be eating out.)

Another delicious week at Heather’s house! I need to try Kate’s Brazilian cheese rolls with Daiya. I *think* it would work. 🙂



Looks delicious, and a nice way to use up bread ends. Love the thought of kale chips, I haven’t made those in a while.


I’m with Shirley. Every time you put up that pic of those buns, I say I’ve got to try those. I just love the way you are doing your weekly menu posts. I know I keep saying that too. 🙂


[…] Heather of Celiac Family wasn’t too sure about if the DIY theme applied to her, but once she created her menu she realized that, like most GF cooks, there are all kinds of things she just ends up making for herself. She’ll be making her own homemade GF breadcrumbs to coat some delectable-looking chicken nuggets, a super tasty homemade Parmesan dressing for her wild rice salad, and a mouthwatering jalapeno-popper dip to jazz up her burgers. She’ll also be making kale chips, which I’m so curious about and keep meaning to try making. All in all it looks like Heather has a balanced, healthy, super scrumptious week planned for her family.

I love the way you do your menu plan, in pictures. It always looks so appetizing!

Isn’t it interesting when you realize how much we do make for ourselves? I noticed you didn’t even mention that you make your own hamburger buns – as GF cooks we’re just used to having to make things that other people take for granted they can just pick up at the store!

Have a great week of cooking – everything looks delicious!


Hi Heather,
I have to join the fans of your pictoral menu plan! I love the idea of kale chips, and the quiona with mushrooms sounds yummy, too.


Sweetie, you are DIY all the way. You just didn’t realize because you make it look so yummy and easy!

Your menu posts with the photos always makes me drool. My family would love everything on your menu. Those hamburger buns look so delicious!


Hi, great website. I made a link to your site on my links page which you can visit here: http://www.pregnancymiraclez.net/my-favourite-sites/

I think my readers and visitors will enjoy it too.

Take care,


Thanks for the encouragement, Wendy. I’m having trouble keeping up with the blog lately. So, the menu plan is the best I can do right now. And, you should give those buns a try. They are wonderful. Although, I have to admit that I often just pick up some pre-made GF buns (Kinnikinnick) at the store.


Scrumptious – Well, the theme you chose did give me a moment to think about it! And I guess I didn’t think about the hamburger buns because I don’t always make them. Sometimes we eat the burgers without buns, and sometimes I’m able to find GF buns at the store.


Maria – Welcome to CeliacFamily! Thanks for the link.
