Menu Monday January 8, 2008

Posted by glutenfreedance in Blogroll, Celiac Disease, Food, Gluten Free, Other People's Blogs, Recipes.

I’ve decided, in the tradition of New Year’s oganizational resolutions, to participate in Gluten Free Mommy’s GF Menu Swap each Monday.  Now, my menus are never going to be as fancy as hers so hopefully she’ll have me. 😉  Due to our busy schedule we try to keep things simple around here.  Shoot, Wednesday’s I don’t even have time to cook. 😀 At this point we are free on Friday and Saturday so I try new recipes on those days.

Monday–cheepizza’s. Those would be quesadilla’s to the common man. We like to buy the x-large corn tortillas, add any fillings you like (but my kids will only eat cheese). The adults will have leftovers.

Tuesday–Spaghetti (we like Mrs. Leeper’s Corn Spaghetti best) & meat sauce, green beans, garlic bread (using Glutino’s baguette’s)

Wednesday–McD’s or dinner at church, depending on if they are having dinner at church.  If they are, we will take our own hot dogs.

Thursday–Tacos, corn, rice

Friday–Parmesan Fish (cod, coated with a mix of GF Italian breadcrumbs & Parmesan cheese, “fried” in olive oil), spinach, rice

Saturday–baked pork chops (coated with Kinnikinnick Chicken Coating Mix), on inspiration of this weeks ingredient (I always wondered what to do with a parsnip) I’m going to try Potatoes & Parsnips in Acorn Squash Bowls, I’ll make carrots, though, in case the kids aren’t too keen on it, &, of course, rice.

Sunday–Leftovers & Sandwiches. Maybe even some Tomato Soup from Pacific Foods.

grr somehow managed to add this to a different post and can’t work out how to remove it.. if you can please do.

Welcome to the gluten free menu swap. It’s always nice to see what everyone else is doing.

I’m the only one gluten free in my household though we were very careful with the small one who is now four and didn’t introduce it into his diet till much later than normal but he is robustly healthy. Most of our cooking is gluten free but they have normal bread (kept and cut outside the kitchen) and we buy normal pizza’s for the freezer as well as GF ones for me but pretty much anything else including pasta is gluten free for everyone.

Wow! I so admire all of you who participate in the GF menu swap. I don’t know how you all do it! Maybe in another life that will be me! Hopefully reading all these posts will motivate me to plan, plan, plan! We do eat well but it is always “on the fly.” Come visit me at http://blogs.timesunion.com/glutenfree
