Menu Plan January 24

This week, Angela of Angela’s Kitchen is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap [4]. I love that she choose slow-cooking as the theme. I often use the slow-cooker to make dinners easier on nights of after-school activities. I can get the dinner started in the slow-cooker when it’s convenient during the day, and then finish up when we get home.

[5]Almost every month, the most popular post on CeliacFamily.com is my recipe for slow-cooked Mexican Chicken [5]. It is so simple and easy, but so tasty and so versatile, too. I use the shredded chicken for tacos [5], rice bowls, enchiladas [6], enchilada soup [7], tostadas, pizza [8], quesadillas, Southwestern chicken salad [9], etc. And yet, I don’t actually have it on my menu this week.

Instead, I’ve got my slow-cooked pulled pork on the menu for Friday. It’s the same idea as the chicken recipe, but with different ingredients. It also makes a huge batch. (It’s hard to find a small pork shoulder!) But, that makes it great for parties or for freezing portions for future dinners. For more gluten-free meals in the slow-cooker, check out the roundup at Angela’s Kitchen [4].

I’m on hosting duties next week with nuts as the theme. So, come back next week and add your GF recipes (or find GF recipes) with nuts.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:


Monday - Chicken Spaghetti with tomatoes and spinach


Tuesday - Flank Steak, baked potatoes and broccoli


Wednesday - Chicken Nuggets, fries & green beans


Thursday - Balsamic Salmon with rice and asparagus


Friday - Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Kale chips

Saturday – Pizza
I’ll make a crust using Kate’s cheese bread recipe [15].

Sunday – Leftovers!
