Another gluten free menu plan

Just in case anyone wanted a peek at my menu for the week.  I know that it helps me sometimes to see what others are having when I get in a rut.  So here is what is on tap for the week.

Here are our 5 dinners.

1.  Taco pasta - This was an easy to fix meal that everyone liked.    Sides were fruit and fresh cucumbers.

2.  Baked balsamic chicken
    Roasted broccoli - maybe this recipe
    Mashed potatoes

3.  Mac and cheese - Trying a new recipe and hoping its as good as the other one.  GF mac and cheese can be very yummy!
    Salad and/or raw veggies with dip

4.  Taco Bowl - Good for a night when I have to leave early for play practice.  Everyone can fix their own dinner as they like it.  Good way to use some leftovers too.  :)
5.  Egg, polenta, salsa dish - polenta with a fried egg, black beans, sliced avocado and salsa on top.  YUM!  We may be having grits instead of polenta as I'm having a hard time finding that around here for some reason.

For breakfast we can have any of these options:

eggs and bacon
yogurt and granola

For lunch:
hot dog and fries
And look what I made tonight for the rest of the week!  :D  I'm really excited to try this out.   You can read more about salads in a jar here.

Last week, two of my boys made a restaurant for us to enjoy for lunch one day!  It was great.  Pretty tablecloth, placemats, menus - the whole works!  I am hoping to see this happen more often.  :)  We are working on cooking lessons a bit this summer at their request.  I love having children that enjoy food and cooking!

Hope you are off to a great start for your week.  I'll be posting the next couple of days some of my May catch-up and then its on to June.  I'm getting there and hope to be fully caught up soon!

Have a great week!



  1. The salads in a jar look great. They would make a fun picnic.
