Menu Plan May 18

mpm121jpg [3]I don’t know why, but for some reason I had a really hard time coming up with a meal plan this week. I was trying to keep a balance between beef and chicken; a balance of meals that appeal to my husband and me and meals more appealing to my kids; make sure we’ve got enough fiber from fruits and vegetables, etc. But what I really wanted to decide, is what wonderful chocolate dessert I was going to make for my birthday this week. I did finally come up with a meal plan, but I still haven’t decided on my birthday treat. I’m thinking about making a Mississippi mud cake (haven’t had one in years!), but if you’ve got any chocolate dessert suggestions send them my way. :)

Monday – Cheeseburgers
Easy night of cooking with cheeseburgers, fries, corn-on-the-cob, and green beans.

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken
Chicken breasts simply seasoned and grilled. Serving with zucchini fritters [4] and red quinoa (if I can find it at the store).

Wednesday – Flank Steak
I didn’t get a chance to have this last week — too many leftovers to eat up. So, I’m trying again this week. Serving with Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.

Thursday – Grilled Chicken Salad
Using some leftover grilled chicken from Tuesday to top a salad. Haven’t yet decided on a Greek salad with the feta in my fridge, or a southwest-style salad [5] with leftover corn and black bean salad [6] in my fridge.

Friday – Crockpot Garlic Chicken [7]
Looking forward to trying this recipe I found on JoAnn’s Gluten-Free Recipe Archive [8]. Serving with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Saturday – Cheesesteak Sandwiches
Another leftover recipe using the flank steak from Wednesday and adding in some cheese and sauteed onions. I’ll use Against the Grain baguettes [9] for the bread.

Sunday – Leftovers
Any prepared foods left in the refrigerator come out for a pick-your-own-meal buffet.

For more gluten-free meals and recipes check out the GF Menu Swap, hosted this week by Book of Yum [10]. The theme ingredient of the week is zucchini, so if you’ve got zucchini be sure to check out all the recipes.

Even more meals and recipes (not necessarily gluten-free) are listed at OrgJunkie.com’s Menu Plan Monday [11].
