Menu Plan November 29

Sweet Potatoes is this week’s theme ingredient for the Gluten Free Menu Swap. I made a sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving that turned out really good. I’ll try to get the recipe posted soon (It’s posted!) for anyone interested. It was a simple, traditional recipe with butter, brown sugar, eggs, and milk. I couldn’t decide whether to use marshmallows, or pecans and brown sugar to top it. I usually prefer the chopped pecan topping, but I know so many look forward to the toasty marshmallows on top. So, I added both, in stripes on top. I actually liked having both toppings. I took a picture before putting it into the oven, but was too busy making the turkey gravy to remember to take a picture after baking.

Other sweet potato ideas: sweet potato pie; sweet potato chili; baked sweet potato fries; simple baked sweet potatoes topped with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday – Pork Chops with Black Beans
Cooking pork chops on the stove with black beans, salsa, and cilantro. I’ll serve it with brown rice and a tossed green salad.

Tuesday – Cheeseburgers
Grilling hamburgers and serving with French fries and green beans.

Wednesday – Leftover Buffet
Everyone gets to pick and choose what they would like warmed for dinner.

Thursday – Quinoa Indian Chicken
This chicken is cut into chunks and cooked with onions and garlic, then flavored with cinnamon, ginger, and curry. I’ll serve it over quinoa, or maybe leftover rice from Monday.

Friday – Flank Steak
Grilling marinated flank steak and serving with mashed potatoes (just didn’t get enough at Thanksgiving) and broccoli.

Saturday – Saucy Shrimp
This shrimp dish from Bonefish Grill is made with kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, and feta. I’ll serve it with brown basmati rice.

Sunday – Baked Ham
Baking a ham sounds good to me. I’ll heat up some peas to serve with it, and maybe some leftover mashed potatoes, too. Or, maybe I’ll make scalloped potatoes, or sweet potatoes…hmmm.
