Menu Plan June 18 – Mango

By · Print This Post Print This Post

School is finally out, and now we are on to packing for our big move to Colorado! There is very little food left in our refrigerator — which is good since we’re moving — but I also don’t want to be eating out for the next two weeks. So, a little grocery shopping this week will help me use up some food we still have in the freezer and pantry.

This week’s theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Mango. I have one mango in the refrigerator that I keep meaning to put into a green smoothie, but I keep forgetting about it. Instead, I think I’ll use it for a Tropical Black Bean Salad this week. I will also be making Indian Chicken with mango chutney this week. And, that should be one less jar in the refrigerator to worry about. ūüôā

Need help figuring out how to cut a mango? A common method is posted at Simply Recipes. I think I’ll give it a try this week, because my method of ‘whatever works’ may be the messiest and least efficient of all. If Elise’s method doesn’t work for you, check out the comments on that post. There are other suggestions from several other readers.

For more ideas of including mango in your meals this week, check out the roundup below.
