Well, believe it or not, half of these meals are being prepared by a caterer for my family reunion. They said they can accommodate the gluten-free diet, and I certainly hope they can, because I’m looking forward to a few days of no cooking. However, I will have plenty of gluten-free food and a small kitchen to prepare meals if necessary. I’ll let you know how it goes. Here’s what’s on our menu for the week.
Monday – Hamburgers
Hotdogs and hamburgers prepared by my uncles. I’ll be bringing our own gluten-free buns (Against the Grain Rolls) to this meal. I’ll have to check the sides when I get there.
Tuesday – Lemon Chicken
The caterers are preparing lemon chicken with garlic, thyme, and white wine sauce. We’ll pass on the Greek pasta salad and rolls, and have a tossed green salad instead.
Wednesday – Lasagne substitute
The caterers said they will prepare a substitute meal for the night they are planning to serve lasagne. Can’t wait to talk to them to see what this will be.
Thursday – BBQ Pulled Pork
Caterers are serving BBQ pulled pork with potato salad and coleslaw. It should be gluten-free, but I’ll check the ingredients to make sure it’s safe. Here’s my recipe for slow-cooked pulled pork.
Friday – Fast Food
Not sure what’s on the menu because it’s our last day of our family reunion. We’ll probably be traveling and have to stop at a restaurant. Chick-fil-A is always one of our favorites while traveling: It’s fast and easy, it has a play area for the kids to stretch their legs and use up some energy, and it has gluten-free options for us.
Saturday – ?????
We’ll probably eat at my parent’s house, in which case I may have to request chicken enchiladas with salsa verde. Or, if we’re short on time, I’d love to try the gluten-free pizza at Godfather’s Pizza. Check out Mike’s review of the gf pizza at his website Switch2GlutenFree.com.
Sunday – Fast Food or Leftovers
More traveling, so maybe more fast food. After a couple days of fast food, it will probably have to be a salad for me. Or, if I’m lucky, it will be leftovers from my parent’s house.
