Menu Plan June 22

By · Print This Post Print This Post

mpm121jpgThis week’s menu is Kids’ Choice. I’ve included many of my kids’ favorite gluten-free dinner items.

Monday – Parmesan Chicken Nuggets
Quick chicken nuggets made with gluten-free bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Serving with french fries and broccoli.

Tuesday – Leftovers
Leftover chicken nuggets and BBQ Pulled Pork. Serving with peas and carrots.

Wednesday – Chick-fil-A
We’ll be out running errands, so I thought I’d let the kids eat and play at Chick-fil-A. My kids eat the chargrilled chicken filet (no bun, just the filet), fruit cup, and waffle fries. I think I’ll try their Chargrilled Chicken and Fruit Salad this week. If you haven’t tried Chick-fil-A yet, check out their gluten-free menu.

Thursday – Chicken Tacos
Slow-cooked Mexican chicken, served with corn tortillas and taco shells, lettuce, shredded cheese, black olives, avocado, tomato, etc.

Friday – Pork Chops with Black Beans
Honestly, my kids don’t really eat the black beans, but they do like the pork chops. My husband and I love the black beans, and we’ll use the leftover black beans later this week in rice bowls. Serving pork chops with rice and green beans.

SaturdayGrilled Steaks
Grilling steaks and serving with potatoes cooked on the grill and corn-on-the-cob.

Sunday – Rice Bowls
For some reason, my kids have decided they don’t like rice anymore. So, they won’t be eating rice bowls. But, they will eat leftover taco meat with quickly heated corn tortillas. My husband and I love rice bowls: rice on the bottom, topped with leftover black beans from pork chops, leftover chicken from tacos, shredded cheese, black olives, etc. I think I’ll make some guacamole to go on top.

Need more menu ideas?
For more gluten-free meals and recipes check out the GF Menu Swap, hosted this week by Esther at The Lilac Kitchen. Her theme ingredient for the week is black currants, which are more common in the UK than the US. Her meal ideas for utilizing them this week sound intriguing and very tasty. I don’t think I’ve cooked with black currants since going gluten-free. Before then, I used to bake them in wonderful scones, but I haven’t tried converting that recipe to be gluten-free yet.

Even more meals and recipes (not necessarily gluten-free) are listed at OrgJunkie.com’s Menu Plan Monday, where you can find links to about 400 different menu plans.

Getting started on the gluten-free diet can be overwhelming. I’m glad I was able to help.

Hello!

I am a marketing manager for 2 restaurants in Chicago, IL and was wondering how our restaurants might be added to your list! The restaurants are Grange Hall Burger Bar and De Cero Taqueria. Both offer amazing gluten free options and are extremely family friendly. We are very sensitive to those with gluten allergies as our owner and her children are all sensitive to gluten. Please let me know if you need additional information or if we can help you out in any way!

Thank you!
Melissa
