Menu Plan Monday ~ January 4, 2009

Here we are in the year 2009.  The first week of the year has proved to be a little rough for us.  Both Hannah and I had the stomach flu last week on New Year’s Eve.  Needless to say, there wasn’t much celebrating going on here.  Now, as I write this, Jon has the stomach flu.  He told me last week when Hannah and I were sick that he wanted to get the stomach flu on Monday (the 5th), so he could have another day off of school.  Well, the kid got his wish.  Poor thing!  This week we are concentrating on getting back into the groove. 

Cheryl, over at GF Goodness, is hosting this week’s GF Menu Swap.  The theme this week is soup.  I don’t think I have ever made soup before, so it is a huge coincidence that I have Crockpot Taco Soup on my menu for the week!  Don’t forget to check out Org Junkie for some other great menu ideas.

Sunday ~ Spaghetti with meat sauce, steamed broccoli and salad.

Monday ~ Grilled Chicken, oven roasted red-skin potatoes, sauteed spinach & salad

Tuesday ~ Salmon, quinoa, salad & veggies

Wednesday ~ Herb Pork Loin Roast, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Steamed Veggies & salad

Thursday ~ Going to the Fish Market for my birthday (it is actually the 9th, but my Dad is leaving town, so we are celebrating early)

Friday ~ Crockpot Taco Soup & salad

Saturday ~ Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries & Salad

 

Baked Goods for the Week

Brownies from the 1, 2, 3 Gluten-Free Mix

Something baked from the Carol Fenster 1,000 GF Recipes Cook Book…haven’t decided what yet, but need to fulfill my goal of making 1 item per week out of this book.

  1. We had the same thing for dinner last night, small world! The Crockpot Taco soup is very good, I have several small batches in the freezer right now.

    Happy early birthday!

  2. Thanks! :)

    I can’t wait to make that soup! My family is not huge on soup, but then again, I don’t usually make it. I figure that is a good one to start with.

  3. Just bought the ingredients for Crockpot Taco soup. I’ve never heard of this. Will make it tomorrow. Thanks, Kim!

  4. Cool, Julie! I can’t wait to make it here! :)

    Let me know how you like it!

  5. I’m making it today. So far, so totally easy. Smells delish–as Rachel Ray says.

    Wonder why my picture shows in your wordpress blog and not in others? Weird…
