Menu Plan May 23 – Corn

Posted By Heather On May 22, 2011 @ 10:38 pm In Menu Plan | 7 Comments


[3]I’m hosting The Gluten Free Menu Swap again. This week the theme is corn. Our local corn is not ripe enough to eat yet. However, we have been getting US-grown fresh corn-on-the-cob in our grocery stores. And, they are really sweet and juicy!

[4]When it’s that good, I just throw the shucked corn in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes. (I like it nice and crisp, and bursting with juice and flavor.) For salads [5] and other corn dishes, I will often use frozen corn kernels.

And don’t forget about corn flour and corn meal to make corn bread [6] and corn dogs. I have a bag of Masa [7] in the pantry that I need to get out and use. So, I’ll be making pupusas [8] this week. It’s been so long since I’ve made them, I hope I remember what to do. What are you making with corn this week? Be sure to check below for a roundup of gluten-free menus from other bloggers.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:


Monday - Southwestern Chicken Salad


Tuesday - Tilapia, Quinoa with Broccoli


Wednesday - Burgers, Corn on the Cob, Green Beans


Thursday - Pigs in a Blanket, Kale Chips, Baked Beans


Friday - Pupusas and Spicy Slaw


Saturday - Pulled Pork, Cornbread, leftover slaw

Sunday – Leftovers
