New Category – Menu Plans

Posted on

We all need menu ideas, right? And when you’re getting used to cooking and baking gluten free, we can use all the help we need for ideas, right? I’m excited to start capturing what we eat week-to-week to be able to give you ideas and to remind myself what I’ve made. There are days when I will sit and stare at my grocery list and the store ads and can’t come up with a single thing to make. These lists should help!

I haven’t decided if I am going to share the menus for the coming week or reflect back…This post, I am reflecting back to last week. Another time, I might do what’s coming up. I guess it doesn’t really matter right? 🙂

May 30th – June 4th
Monday – Memorial Day! Enjoyed a variety of naturally g-free goodies at a BBQ with friends. I took a Spinach Salad topped with red onion, candied walnuts, Craisins, feta cheese and a raspberry merlot vinegrette. YUMMY!

Tuesday – Grilled Turkey Veggie Burger and Grill-Roasted Sweet Potatoes. The burger was FULL of diced red pepper, red onion, fresh garlic and sweet basil from the garden. I ate the burger on a toasted Kinnikinnick hamburger bun.

Wednesday – Grilled Chicken Spinach Salad. I marinated the chicken in the raspberry dressing from the salad and created the salad from Monday again, but this time with chicken. Served with cantaloupe.

Thursday – Mexican night! Beef and black bean nachos with On the Border tortilla chips (my favorite!) and all the fixings. Mandarin oranges on the side. Delicious!

Friday – Breakfast for the family while I got my hair done. 🙂 I fixed myself a rice dish when I got home. Medium grain rice mixed with diced chicken, feta, craisins and a bit of raspberry dressing. Ok, I am now seeing I am a bit obsessed with that combination.

Saturday – Date Night! Enjoyed the chicken nachos from Qdoba.

  1. Wow, that does sound like an awesome salad, going to have to try it sometime soon! : ) I know what you mean, though… I have the hardest time coming up with meal ideas. It’s just my husband and me now, and even though I’m getting to make all the things I love that my kids didn’t necessarily like, the novelty is wearing thin already. Thanks for a great idea!
