This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted at Asparagus Thin. Manda chose the theme of Red Carpet Specials. I can only assume that she was thinking of meals and dishes appropriate for a celebration of the Academy Awards. Well, since I have small kids who were in bed before the ceremony even started, I’m thinking more about after-dinner cocktails and desserts. So, I am offering recipes for Chocolate Martinis and Raspberry Meringue Tarts.
Thanks to Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness for continuing to organize this fun and helpful event. If you’d like to find out more about the Gluten Free Menu Swap, host future events, or check out past round-ups, visit the current GF Menu Swap headquarters on her site. Last week, Cheryl posted a giveaway of gluten-free food items to encourage more hosts to participate, so go ahead and enter and join us for GF Menu Swap!
Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
Monday – Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry
Using my flank steak marinade to season sirloin strips. Then cooking up with broccoli, cabbage, garlic, water chestnuts, etc. Serving over rice.
Tuesday – Pork Chops with Black Beans
Pork Chops pan-fried with salsa and black beans. Serving with leftover rice and green beans.
Wednesday – Cheeseburgers
We’ve really been enjoying the cheese bread rolls with our burgers. If you haven’t tried them yet, you should really give them a try. They’re really pretty quick and easy to make.
Thursday – Leftover Buffet
Time to clean out the refrigerator. Everyone gets to choose their own meal.
Friday – Chicken Tikka Masala
I made this a couple weeks ago and it was so good I couldn’t stop thinking about it for two days. I had originally planned to make it with spinach, but tried this simpler recipe instead because my spinach had gotten slimy. My husband thought it was great, too, but he said he still prefers the Chicken Vindaloo. Both are too spicy for the kids so they get to eat plain chicken instead. Serving with basmati rice.
Saturday – Pizza
If I can find a zPizza, I’ll be checking out their gluten-free pizzas this weekend.
Sunday – Fish
I found so many good-looking fish recipes last week, I think I need to try one this week.
