Menu Plan November 14 – Meatballs

By · Print This Post Print This Post

This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted at Gluten Free Detroit Metro. Visit the site to browse all the recipes and ideas for including meatballs in your gluten-free menu this week.

Last week was almost a complete failure of following our menu plan. I had a sick kid who didn’t feel like eating much, and a refrigerator full of leftovers. I decided it made more sense to eat up the leftovers than cook meals that would no doubt create more leftovers. So, I’ve moved some of my meals planned last week to this week instead.

I’m excited to see what other bloggers are planning for the Meatballs theme this week. We don’t make meatballs very often, although my daughter loves the ones my husband makes. This week, I’m trying a traditional recipe for Meatballs with Spaghetti and Marinara Sauce from Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking. I checked out the cookbook at the library this week. I wasn’t looking for cookbooks, just happened to see it. Funny how my eyes can pick out “Gluten-Free” on a book set on a shelf of new books from 8 feet away. It looks like it has a lot of good, basic gluten-free recipes to use on a weekly basis.

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Amanda is hosting this week’s GF Menu Swap at Gluten Free Detroit Metro with Meatballs as the theme.

Next week’s roundup is being hosted here at Celiac Family with a Thanksgiving theme. Share your Thanksgiving menu, your favorite Thanksgiving dishes, or your plan for navigating through the feast without getting glutened.

I’ve updated the Gluten-Free Menu Swap Page with the current schedule of themes and hosts. If you’d like to host a future week, please send me an email (celiacfamily[AT]gmail[DOT]com) with your preferred date and theme.

Hi Heather. Lucky you had a frig full of leftovers to fall back on. You’ve reminded me that I have that cookbook on my shelf and I should pull it out and look for inspiration too. Hope everyone stays well this week. I have also shamelessly started posting my menu pix and copying you. In the past I didn’t have a backlog of meal photos to use and now I’ve followed your lead and am posting them. Gotta get all the mileage out of those recipes and photos I can. Thanks!
