Menu Plan June 7

By · Print This Post Print This Post

My menu plan this week is built around fast and easy meals. Too many events and projects to get done this week. So, we’ll be eating leftovers, picking up food, and fixing quick meals to get through the week. Thank goodness I have cupcakes in the freezer! Three birthday celebrations at school and a soccer party means we’ll be taking our own.

Next week I’ll be hosting the menu swap with strawberries as the theme. So come back to link up your own strawberry recipes, or see what other bloggers have to share.

Want to join the Gluten-Free Menu Swap? Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness manages the headquarters of Gluten-Free Menu Swap. There you will find the rules, the current and upcoming schedule, and links to past roundups.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday – Sub Sandwiches
My one experiment of the week: I’m on a mission to create gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free submarine/hoagie rolls. If it works out, we’ll build our own sandwiches for dinner. I’ll have the kids make fruit kabobs to serve with it.

Tuesday – zPizza
Hoping my husband can pick up gluten-free pizza at zPizza on his way home from work. We’ll serve it with a tossed green salad.

Wednesday – Rotisserie Chicken
Picking up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. (Check the ingredients before you buy. Some use wheat starch in flavoring the chicken.) We’ll have quinoa with broccoli and mushrooms to serve with it.

Thursday – Out
We’ll eat out, but not sure where yet.

Friday – Chicken Tacos
Slow-cooking chicken with Mexican spices in a Crock-Pot to make tacos. We’ll have shredded lettuce, cheese, sliced olives, and maybe even guacamole to build our favorite tacos in corn tortillas and/or shells.

Saturday – Easy Garlic Shrimp Pasta
Making a quick shrimp dish and serving over rice noodles. Serving with roasted asparagus.

Sunday – Flank Steak
Grilling marinated flank steak and serving with corn on the cob and broccoli salad.

Heather–you can buy Restaurant.com certificates for ZPizza. If you buy during one of their 70 or 80% off sales (every month or so), you’ll pay only $2 for a $25 certificate. I think you have to spend $35 to use it on a weekday, but between pizzas and a few salads, it’s a great deal.

your gf vegan sub rolls sound like a noble mission! Have a great week.

Thanks, Gina! I’ll have to look into that.

Cheryl – The rolls worked out OK tonight. They weren’t quite as light as I’d like them, but still pretty good. I’ve got a couple more changes to try.

I’m all for that easy garlic shrimp pasta! :-) We had a totally made up pasta dish last night with chicken, some tomato, sauce, and all the veggies in the fridge. It turned out wonderfully. Mr. GFE, who loves his pasta, was in heaven. I will definitely put your pasta dish on our menu plan for when we return from vacation, Heather!

Have a good week!

Mmmm. Strawberries. I received some in my CSA box the past two weeks. I’ll likely get more this week. Hopefully I can get it together for the menu swap.
