holiday-food-fest [3]I’m really feeling the holidays closing in now. I still haven’t finalized our Thanksgiving plans, yet. But, fortunately, there are lots of fun holiday meal ideas to check out at many gluten-free blog websites.

The Holiday Food Fest [3] hosted at Simply Sugar & Gluten Free has plenty of fall and holiday dishes to check out. (Many are gluten-free, but not all.) So far, roundups of Fall Desserts [4] and Fall Dishes [5] have been posted.

Diane at The Whole Gang announced a virtual Thanksgiving Progressive Dinner Party [6] this week. Several different gluten-free bloggers will be contributing and hosting each day this week with some great recipes. I can’t wait to see what they have to offer. At the end of the post [6], Diane also has a great meal planning template for preparing for a large Thanksgiving celebration. Now that’s getting organized!

Thanksgiving [7]

So, while I surf through the blogs and finalize our Thanksgiving plans this week, here’s what our family will be eating for dinner:

Monday – Butter Chicken (Chicken Makhani)
Based on all the leftovers I already have in the refrigerator, we should be having a leftover buffet instead. But, I’ve been anxious to try butter chicken again. This time, I’m taking the easy way and trying Patak’s Butter Chicken Cooking Sauce [8]. Check out this easy recipe at Patak’s website [9]. Serving with Basmati rice.

Tuesday – Boneless Pork Ribs
So, I’ve never actually cooked pork ribs before. I’ve always enjoyed my dad’s spare ribs, but never even attempted them. Instead, I just request it when I go home. Last week I saw the boneless pork ribs on sale at the grocery store and decided to give them a try. I found a good looking recipe for them at Fire and Salt [10] to try. I’ll serve them with Red Potato and Green Bean Salad [11].

Wednesday – Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
Marinating sirloin strips of beef with my flank steak marinade [12]. Then stir frying the beef with broccoli, garlic, water chestnuts, and peppers. Serving over rice.

Thursday – Leftover Buffet
OK. I don’t think we’ll be able to wait any longer. Time to clean out the refrigerator. Everyone gets to choose their favorite.

Friday – Hamburgers
My daughter’s favorite cheeseburgers and fries is on the menu.

Saturday – Outback [13]
It may be time to use up that gift card for Outback that’s been floating around in my purse. Outback has a nicely detailed gluten-free menu [14] with plenty of choices that satisfy everyone in our family.

Sunday – Pizza
Trying pizza again. If I’ve got time, I’ll try my dad’s recipe for thin crust pizza. I just need to modify it to be gluten-free. If I’m low on time, I just might pull out the frozen Glutino pizzas [15].

  • menu-swap-009 [16]Be sure to check out the Gluten-Free Menu Swap [17] this week at In My Box [17]. In My Box is a nice website designed around vegan and gluten-free foods using the produce received from the local CSA. This week’s theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap is Dutch ovens. I don’t use a Dutch oven, so I don’t have anything to contribute. But if you’re looking for some ideas for cooking gluten-free using a Dutch oven, be sure to check out the roundup at In My Box.
  • Laura at OrgJunkie.com [7] hosts Menu Plan Monday every week. You’ll find links to hundreds of meal plans (not necessarily gluten-free) there.
