Menu Plan September 20

By · Print This Post Print This Post

The busy activities continue at our house. I’m keeping some quick meals on the menu again this week, but hope to find time later in the week to try some new recipes.

Join us at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted at Chickiepea’s Blog with Apples as the theme ingredient.

It certainly is the season for buying crisp, juicy apples. And with apples being so plentiful right now, I’m a little surprised that I don’t have apples on my menu. I guess we’ve been eating so many raw with lunch and snacks, that I don’t have any left for using in other ways. I may need to revisit my menu and think about adding in baked apples, or some other apple treat. Find other gluten-free menus and apple food ideas this week at Chickiepea’s Blog: Eating for Autoimmune Health.

The rules, the current and upcoming schedule for the Gluten Free Menu Swap, and links to past roundups can be found at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap Headquarters managed by Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday – Chicken Taquitos
Using slow-cooked shredded Mexican chicken to roll up in corn tortillas to make taquitos. Serving with Cilantro Rice.

I’m pulling out Glutino’s frozen cheese pizzas. We’ll add our own favorite toppings: pepperoni, mushrooms, sliced black olives, etc. Serving with a tossed green salad.

Wednesday – Beef Kabobs
Grilling cubes of marinated sirloin, with mushrooms, onions, and peppers. Serving with quinoa.

ThursdayChicken Tenderloins
Another quick frozen meal. My kids love Bell & Evans gluten-free Chicken Tenders. I keep it in the freezer for nights when I have babysitters (or busy nights). Serving with corn and green beans.

Friday – Baked Salmon with Dill
A simple, yet flavorful, meal of salmon with fresh dill and lemon juice. Serving with leftover quinoa and asparagus.

Saturday – Leftovers
A buffet of everything left in the refrigerator. If I have any energy left from our busy week, I’ll bake Lauren’s Maple Date Squares posted at Celiac Teen.

Sunday – Sweet and Sour Pork
Hoping to have the time to try this recipe for Sweet and Sour Pork at Simply…Gluten Free.

Thank you for introducing us to Bell and Evans. Right now I buy the Ian’s chicken nuggets by the case load. But I really would prefer an organic chicken brand. We tried Applegate but the kids really did not like those. They have to actually eat them to be worth the money.

It’s a simple week for our house on MPM.


Another quick and easy thing to do with the Bell and Evans tenders: I bake on one side, flip over and add marinara and a sprinkle of cheese and bake for quick and easy chicken parmesan! Serve with a salad and some GF pasta and it is Italian night in 30 minutes or less.


Sometimes I get so caught up in following your good links, I forget to comment. Caught myself this time after visiting Carol and her Sweet and Sour Pork recipe. That one looks like a winner.


Great idea, Melissa! Always looking for quick and easy, but tasty options. Thanks for sharing it with us.


I agree, the apples have been absolutely terrific, and I find that when fresh raw fruit is so yummy, I often don’t think to use it in baking, either.
the dill salmon looks delicious, and the picture of you and your daughter is so sweet!


I am getting some traffic from your site, so I decided to come see what it was about. I am actually not hosting this week because my family is really sick, and I’m just worn out. Sorry! 🙁
