Menu Plan October 25

Posted By Heather On October 24, 2010 @ 10:21 pm In Menu Plan | 6 Comments


[2]Whew! Last week was much better for following the menu plan. Getting to the grocery store certainly helped. There were a couple meals I didn’t get to make, but we had plenty of leftovers to get us through the week. I even managed to finish updating my GF Halloween Candy List [3] this weekend. I’m making progress, but still have plenty of distractions — like finishing the Halloween costumes. :)

Pumpkin is the theme ingredient for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. You’ll find the roundup of gluten-free menus at Gluten Free Smiles [4] this week. I actually made some pumpkin desserts this past weekend. I made my grandmother’s pumpkin pie recipe with gluten-free pie shells (Gillian’s Foods) I found in the freezer section at Wegmans. And for the picky eaters in the family, I made quick and easy chocolate pumpkin muffins [5] made with Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devil’s Food Cake Mix [6].  For more ideas of using pumpkin in your gluten-free meals or desserts, visit Michelle at Gluten Free Smiles [4] this week for the roundup [4].

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

[7]Monday – Taquitos
I ended up having a lot of shredded Mexican chicken [8] leftover last week, so I’ll roll up the rest of it in corn tortillas and serve with Cilantro Lime Rice [7]. I’ll serve it with some Avocado Salsa [9], too.

TuesdayRotisserie Chicken
I’ll pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and serve with green beans and corn. (Read the labels carefully. Some rotisserie chickens are cooked with chicken broth and/or other spices that contain gluten.)

[10]Wednesday – Tilapia Parmesan [11]
This has become one of my daughter’s favorite meals. I broil the tilapia with a creamy parmesan sauce. I’ll pour any excess sauce over asparagus and brown rice.

Thursday – Leftover Buffet
Another busy night demands a quick and easy meal. Everyone gets to choose from a variety of leftovers.

[12]Friday – Chicken Vindaloo [12]
My husband and I love this dish, but I don’t make it too often. It’s too spicy for the kids, so they get to eat hot dogs or another quick-to-fix meal.

Saturday – Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
I marinate sirloin strips [13] and stir fry with broccoli, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, mushrooms, and any other vegetables I have that need to be cooked up.

[3]Sunday – Chili and Cornbread [14]
A traditional meal for us on Halloween. High in protein to help balance all the sugar we eat. :)
