Menu Plan March 14

Posted By Heather On March 14, 2011 @ 12:10 pm In Menu Plan | 9 Comments


[3] Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness [4] is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap [4] this week with my favorite theme: Quick and Easy! I do like preparing good, healthy food for my family, but I don’t often have a lot of time for a complicated meal. And since my five- and seven-year-olds are still in the stage of preferring to eat plain foods, simple works best for them. I do have to take a break from the plain food [5] now and again to please the palates of myself and my husband, but even then I often find short cuts to make them quick and easy. I may prepare ingredients in advance of meal time, use a Slow Cooker [6], or choose quick-cooking foods. But probably my favorite short cut is using up the leftovers [7].

Here are a few of my favorite quick and easy meals that aren’t on this week’s menu:
