Menu Plan October 8 – Pumpkin

Posted By Heather On October 8, 2012 @ 12:57 am In Menu Plan | 1 Comment


[3]It’s Pumpkin Week at The Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week’s roundup is being hosted by Lisa at Extraordinary Life [3]You may recall that Lisa’s family is following a Paleo diet. (That means it’s gluten-free, too!) This weekend she posted a recipe for Pumpkin Pie [4] with a crust made of nuts. I’m anxious to give it a try.

I was also baking with pumpkin this weekend. I used my recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana mini muffins [5] to make Pumpkin mini muffins. I simply substituted pumpkin for the bananas and added a few spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice). They were a nice comfort food to have during our first really cold fall weekend. I’ll also be making the often-requested Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins [6] (made with a gluten-free chocolate cake mix) soon.

Last week’s busy week with two sick kids and visiting family precipitated some changes from my monthly menu plan for this week:

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:


Cilantro Lime Rice
