Menu Plan September 6

[2]It’s Back to School for us this week. As such, I prepared a packet of information to give to the kids’ teachers to help them understand what a gluten-free diet means, and how my kids can stay gluten free at school.  In the packet, I included the following:

We certainly have a lot of new things to manage this year: A new schedule, new teachers, new after-school activities, new volunteer activities, etc. So, I’m trying to keep the meals easy and familiar this week to ease into our transition.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

[8]MondayParmesan Chicken Nuggets [8]
Starting the week with the kids’ favorite. Bite-size chicken pieces coated with Parmesan and GF bread crumbs, then baked until crispy. I’ll serve it with French fries and steamed broccoli.

TuesdayBaked Salmon with Dill [9]
A quick and easy recipe for preparing a tasty salmon meal. Serving with roasted asparagus [10] and brown rice.

[11]Wednesday – Grilled Chicken
Lightly seasoned chicken breasts grilled and topped with a slice of cheese and a slice of avocado. Serving with fruit kabobs and rice.

ThursdayPizza
Making pizza using the
cheese bread recipe [12] for the crust. Then, keeping it simple with pepperoni and mozzarella. I’ll make a tossed green salad to serve with it.

[13]Friday – Pigs in a Blanket [14]
Wrapping hot dogs in a GF bread dough, then baking until golden brown. I’ll serve it with Corn and Black Bean Salad [15].

Saturday – Leftover Buffet
Cleaning out the refrigerator to let everyone choose their own meal.

Sunday – Eating Out

  • [16]Join us at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. Michelle at Gluten Free: A Reason 2 Smile [17] is hosting this week, with peaches as the theme. I don’t have peaches in the menu this week, but I expect the yummy fresh fruit will find its way into our school snacks and lunches this week. I also like to add canned peaches to my Quinoa Indian Chicken [18] dish.
    .

The rules, the current and upcoming schedule, and links to past roundups can be found at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap Headquarters [19] at Gluten Free Goodness. I’ll be hosting next week with beans as the theme ingredient.
