Menu Plan March 21

Posted By Heather On March 20, 2011 @ 10:48 pm In Menu Plan | 4 Comments


[3]It is officially spring! Spring always seems to bring a surge of activities at our house. And this year is no different. I really wanted to post about the meals and treats we made to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year, but just couldn’t find the time to do it. So, instead I offer this picture of the Rainbow Fruit Kabobs I made for my daughter’s class. I think the picture says it all!

With spring activities keeping it busy, I’m trying to keep our meal prep simple, but I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a food rut. So, I’ve been happy to have Amy Green’s new cookbook: Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free [4] to motivate me. I know I’ve mentioned it a couple times already, but I am really enjoying the recipes. I find most of them to be pretty quick and easy to prepare. And best of all, they seem to work for everyone in the family (even the picky kids). I think I’ll try a few more recipes this week, too!

[5]Also on the menu this week is noodles. Wendy at Celiacs in the House [6] is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week [6] with noodles as the theme. We don’t eat a lot of noodles, or pasta in general, in my house. My kids have never learned to like pasta. My husband and I still enjoy the Gluten-Free variety on occasion, so I do encourage the kids to try it when I fix it for us.  They still insist they don’t like it, so I don’t fix it too often.  For more noodle recipes, even a homemade gluten-free egg noodle recipe, check out the roundup this week at Celiacs in the House [6].

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:


Monday - Chicken Spaghetti with tomatoes and spinach


Tuesday - Pork Chops with Black Beans and Salsa, Rice


Wednesday - Cheeseburgers, Fries, Broccoli


Thursday – I plan to try Amy’s recipe for Roasted Chicken. I’ll serve it with corn and green beans.

Friday – I hope Amy’s recipe for Spicy Stuffed Southwest Chicken is as good as it sounds. I’ll serve it with leftover rice and beans from Tuesday.

Saturday – One more from Amy’s cookbook this week: Socca Pizzas. Wendy at Celiacs in the House [10] says her family loves them, so I’m anxious to give them a try.

Sunday – Leftovers!
