Menu Plan October 18
Posted By Heather On October 17, 2010 @ 11:00 pm In Menu Plan | 4 Comments
Why does it seem that every week is busier than the last? I don’t think I made anything on my menu plan last week. With all the activity in my life right now, I didn’t even make it to the grocery store. So, we ate leftovers, had a meal at Chik-fil-a, and made waffles for dinners. Other than that, I don’t even remember. Maybe I can get back on track this week.
Cinnamon is the theme ingredient for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. Cinnamon is a favorite flavor in our house. I use it in our French toast, roasted acorn squash, baked sweet potatoes, my Banana Coffee Cake recipe , and my King Cake recipe . This weekend I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to my recipe for gluten-free beignets , and fried them up for a nice breakfast treat. Since I didn’t get to make it last week, I’ll try again this week to make my Indian Chicken  dish which uses cinnamon as well as curry and ginger for an exciting flavor. For more ideas of using cinnamon in your gluten-free meals, visit Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness  this week for the roundup .
Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
Monday – Shredded Chicken Tacos 
I’ll slow-cook chicken  breasts with Mexican spices and salsa. Then serve it with corn tortillas, chopped lettuce, shredded cheddar, sliced olives, and guacamole .
Tuesday – Leftover Chili
I made chili over the weekend. It’s too spicy for the kids, so we have plenty of it leftover. I’ll make a batch of gluten-free cornbread  to serve with it. The kids will get to eat hot dogs and green beans with their cornbread.
Wednesday – Cilantro Lime Shrimp 
This is a quick and easy meal to prepare. The shrimp is quickly sauteed and flavored with garlic, lime juice, cilantro and butter. Instead of rice, I’ll serve it over rice noodles with a side of steamed broccoli.
Thursday – Parmesan Chicken Nuggets 
This is always a favorite at our house. I’ll serve it with French fries and a tossed green salad.
Saturday – Indian Chicken with Quinoa 
Sunday – Leftover Buffet
Everyone gets to choose from a variety of leftovers.
