Menu Plan Oct 12

By · Print This Post Print This Post


Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week. She chose apples as the theme ingredient. What great timing. I’m sure she chose them because they are in-season and are perfectly ripe right now. The kids and I have been eating apple slices for snacks and with our lunch all month. My husband has an allergic reaction to raw apples, but is able to eat them cooked. So, I’m hoping to bake some apples this week with a little cinnamon and brown sugar for a yummy treat.

Monday – Pulled Pork Sandwiches
I’ll be slow-cooking a pork shoulder, then adding BBQ sauce. Serving with sweet potato fries and a tossed salad.

With no afterschool activities planned, I thought I’d experiment and try making pupusas. I’ve had the flour sitting in my pantry for months staring at me every time I opened it. I may even put some of the leftover pulled pork in them. Serving with avocado salsa and leftover tossed salad.

Wednesday – Grilled Chicken
Chicken simply seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled. Serving with rice and baked apples.

Thursday – Fish and Chips
I’m hoping to make fish and chips, if I can find a good gluten-free recipe. Serving with peas.

Friday – Leftover Buffet
Time to clear the leftovers out of the refrigerator.

Saturday – Pizza
I think I’ll try another recipe for gluten-free pizza crust. Serving with broccoli.

Sunday – Pork Chops with Black Beans
Serving with rice.

I’m loving the idea of avocado salsa! have a great week.


Please let us know how your pupusas turn out.


[…] of Celiac Family has puposas and avocado salsa on the line up.  YUM!!!  She also had some nice posts up about Halloween, so […]


Great looking menu. I hope you get to make those Pupusas. I love them. I stuff them with anything I have on hand. If you get stuck, give me a buz but I’m sure you’ll do great. It’s all in the feel of the dough and the hand work putting them together. Have fun!


I love pupusas! I am crazy about them! But they have been firmly in the “food I get in restaurants” category for me – it has never occurred to me to try making them. I hope yours turn out fantastic, and thanks for the inspiration!
