Menu Plan Jan. 4, 2010!

menu-swap-009 [3]Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. We really had a nice holiday break, but I’m ready to get back on schedule. If you haven’t had a chance yet, check out the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week [4]. Manda at Asparagus Thin is hosting this week with a movie theme. Great idea! I had fun coming up with my movie-themed menu.

MondayLasagne (Movie: Garfield – The Movie [5])
Using gluten-free pasta [6], of course, we’ll be having lasagne served with a tossed green salad. I’ll also slice a gluten-free baguette [7] and bake with Weman’s garlic-cheese finishing butter [8].

Tuesday – Pulled Pork Sandwiches [9]
Slow-cooked pork shoulder shredded and topped with barbecue sauce and a gluten-free bun. Serving with French fries and spicy slaw [10].

Wednesday – zPizza [11] (Movie: Mystic Pizza [12]. Remember this 1988 movie with Julia Roberts?)
Last week, I got some gift certificates to try zPizza. I’ll pick up a couple gluten-free pizzas after my daughter’s dance class, which happens to be right around the corner from zPizza. How convenient!

Thursday – Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (Movie: Kung Fu Panda [13] – OK, I know dumplings would’ve been a better choice for this movie, but this is the best I can do this week. If you want to try making your own gluten-free dumplings, try the recipe at Hey, that tastes good! [14])
Marinating sirloin strips [15] in a Chinese-inspired marinade and stir-frying with broccoli, cabbage, celery, carrots, and any other vegetables I need to cook up. Serving over rice.

Friday – Leftovers
Looks like a good night to clean out the refrigerator and eat up the leftovers.

Saturday – Corn Dogs (aka Nitrate-sicles) (Movie: There’s Something About Mary [16] – I guess we could have “Frank and Beans,” but I’m thinking about the line that Ben Stiller’s character says: “I say they should put more meats on a stick, you know? They got a lot of sweets on sticks–popsicles, fudgesicles, lollipops–but hardly any meat.”)
It’s been a long time since I made gluten-free corn dogs. Maybe the kids will eat them this time.

Sunday – Grilled Steaks
It is very cold and windy here this week, so I will be grilling these indoors on the new Grill Pan [17] I got for Christmas. (Thanks, Dan!) Serving with baked potatoes and a tossed green salad.
