Menu Plan September 19

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Fall officially begins this week, and I am already feeling the effects of cooler nights, shorter days, and ragweed season. And yet the desire to slow down and relax is met with the excitement of fall activities and a schedule that is quickly filling up. School schedules, after-school schedules, and homework are already keeping us busy. And, I have to admit that I am already thinking about the holiday activities that aren’t too far off!

With Sweet potatoes as the theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week, I’m reminded of our holiday meals that usually include a sweet potato casserole. Amanda at Gluten Free Detroit Metro is hosting the swap this week, so head over there for the roundup of sweet potato meal ideas. We’ll be eating sweet potato fries this week. My kids haven’t become big fans of sweet potatoes yet, but they aren’t big fans of white potatoes unless they’re French fries. So, maybe this week, I’ll try frying the sweet potato fries until they’re crispy. Baking them hasn’t gotten a very good response.

On Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Cilantro Rice

Baked Salmon

Hamburger Buns

Monday – Taquitos with shredded Mexican Chicken served with Cilantro Lime Rice and Guacamole

Tuesday – Baked Salmon served with steamed asparagus and leftover rice.

Wednesday – Hamburgers served with sweet potato fries and green peas.

Thursday – Chili and cornbread

Friday – Pizza with a tossed green salad

[…] Do you think Heather can mask sweet potatoes as french fries for the kids?  Sure she can.  I love fried sweet potatoes.  In the past I’ve had them as french fries and potato cakes.  It really brings out the sweetness and gives it a specific flavor.  If her kids won’t eat them, I will.  Heather’s menu looks much like our family’s.  All the meals look simple and kid friendly.  Check her out at Celiac Family.

I hear you! as it gets chilly, I want to curl up and nap with two ultimate nappers–my kitties. And thanks for your local dining out resources. we haven’t been out nearby since we moved out here, and I’ll have to look for somewhere soon b/c my in laws are coming to town.


These menus look well tasty.

Keep them coming
