Menu Plan July 9 – Corn

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Corn is the theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week. It’s the perfect season to buy fresh corn-on-the-cob, and my kids usually devour it. However, this year, my kids have not been as excited about eating it (at least not on the cob). They both lost their front teeth this spring, so I’ve been cutting it off the cob with this nifty gadget I got for Christmas one year.

I also buy and keep frozen corn kernels in the freezer. It’s  just so quick and easy to cook up and put into side dishes. My favorite use is in Corn and Black Bean Salad, but we also like to add  corn to our chili. Last week, my aunt and uncle made a wonderful sautéed corn dish (like this simple recipe by the Barefoot Contessa) to have with dinner. Anybody else have any good ideas for preparing corn?

Check out the roundup below to see who else may be sharing gluten-free menus and ideas for preparing corn this week.

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Fresh corn is a favorite with the kids at Angela’s Kitchen, too. And Angela says that the family’s favorite road-side stand just set up last week! So, I think she’s going to have to get some to go with her yummy meals this week: BBQ Turkey Sloppy Joes, Spinach and Tomato Frittata, Stir Fry with Quinoa, Zucchini Pancakes, and Korean Beef Tacos with Cilantro Cashew Salad.

Paige at Not Missing a Thing! has a great meal plan to share for a week at the beach. It’s complete with breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal plans, as well as tips for preparing for a vacation. Meals included in her plan are Buckwheat Waffles, Taco Burgers, Chef Salads, Summertime Chicken Salad, and Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches.

Hi, Heather! Oooo, you already got my link. You are speedy! I gotta try that corn and black bean salad this weekend. YUM!

We got that same gadget when my older daughter got braces. She got them in August a few years ago which is still prime corn season here. That is the one thing about braces she was bummed about. The good thing is that she also got them off just as corn season was starting two seasons later, so we had a big corn cob feast a week after she got her braces off! :)
