Menu Plan October 18

Posted By Heather On October 17, 2010 @ 11:00 pm In Menu Plan | 4 Comments


[3]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 [4], and my King Cake recipe [5]. This weekend I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to my recipe for gluten-free beignets [6], 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 [7] 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 [8] this week for the roundup [8].

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

[9]MondayShredded Chicken Tacos [9]
I’ll slow-cook chicken [9] breasts with Mexican spices and salsa. Then serve it with corn tortillas, chopped lettuce, shredded cheddar, sliced olives, and guacamole [10].

TuesdayLeftover 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 [11] to serve with it. The kids will get to eat hot dogs and green beans with their cornbread.

[12]Wednesday – Cilantro Lime Shrimp [12]
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 [13]
This is always a favorite at our house. I’ll serve it with French fries and a tossed green salad.

[14]Friday – Mexican Pizza [14]
I’ll use leftover Mexican chicken [9] for topping this pizza with sliced black olives, tomatoes, and avocados.

Saturday – Indian Chicken with Quinoa [7]

Sunday – Leftover Buffet
Everyone gets to choose from a variety of leftovers.
