Menu Plan ~ November 3, 2008

Still sore and taking it easy here, so nothing elaborate for us on the menu this week. I haven’t even done my grocery shopping yet for the week, so that has got to tell you something. We do have lots of meat in the freezer, so I may just need to make a quick stop in for fresh veggies (assuming I can chew them sometime again), milk and lunch meat for the kids. I am flying by the seat of my pants with this menu plan….haven’t put one ounce of thought into it until I sat down at my laptop right now. So, let’s have at it!

Sunday ~ Oh, that was last night. Guess I don’t have to plan for that, huh? ;)
Monday ~ Spaghetti & meat sauce. I may do spaghetti squash since I have one that has been sitting here for 1+ weeks. The kids & DH will do Tinkyada. I would love to have salad, not sure I am there yet. I will make one for the kids & DH.
Tuesday ~ Grilled Chicken, brown rice and butternut squash.
Wednesday ~ Ice Skating & Hockey; out to dinner, maybe soup at Panera or Cheeseburger in Paradise
Thursday ~ Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, veggies and cornbread.
Friday ~ Breakfast for dinner (eggs/French Toast/bacon/sausage)
Saturday ~ Homemade Pizza and salad (If I can’t eat a salad by then, I will cry)

Baked goods ~ HA! I do have a bunch of mixes that were sent in a care package, I don’t see it happening. I would like to try the Soft Pretzel’s (Miss Roben’s Mix) ASAP.

Make sure to pop over to Angela’s Kitchen (Thanks for hosting, Angela!) for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap and to Org Junkie for lots of other menu plans.

Meal Plan Monday ~ October 27, 2008

Another busy week ahead. Hockey practice, ice skating, hockey games and I am having surgery on Friday, hopefully in the AM. It is an outpatient procedure, so I hope to be home before the kids get home from school. I have to have my left sub-mandibular salivary gland removed b/c I have a small cyst on it. Apparently the only way to tell if the cyst is malignant or not is to remove it. Nice. Anyway, enough about that. My focus this week is just on getting through the week. Tonight, Sunday, we had leftovers. :) There is no “main” ingredient this week. I am planning on 2 desserts/baked goods to have made before Friday. That way I have treats, along with candy from Halloween, to snack on while recovering. ;)

Sunday ~Leftovers (pork loin roast, creamy pumpkin brown rice & veggies)

Monday ~ Salmon (most likely grilled), sweet potatoes (probably baked), steamed green beans & salad

Tuesday ~ Filet Mignon on the grill, baked potatoes, sauteed zucchini & salad

Wednesday ~ Eating out after skating & hockey

Thursday ~ Roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, veggies & salad

Friday ~ Whatever my Mom makes or gets take out, maybe Pei Wei.

Saturday ~ My Mom is making her homemade beef pot pie, gluten-free. I can’t wait!!! :)

Baked goods for the week:

Pumpkin Raisin Bread
Homemade Chocolate Pudding (recipe by GingerLemonGirl)
Pumpkin Pudidng (this is a Jell-O mix that I came across…..you all know I am a sucker for pumpkin!)

Menu Plan for September 7, 2008 – September 13, 2008

I have been in such a baking mood lately and I can’t seem to stop. It is becoming a problem b/c we can’t eat the stuff fast enough! LOL! I am going to have to slow down or start to freeze at least half of my projects. Jon is not objecting in the least. This week I have Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies on the plan to bake (they have no flour in them!). I found the recipe on the forum at Celiac.com. When I make it and share it here, I will have to go back and look to see who posted it. For breakfast this week Jon will be eating Chocolate Chip Banana Pumpkin Bread and maybe pancakes. I have a few new things I want to try for pancakes, including some pumpkin/oatmeal combos. Onto the plan:

Sunday ~ Outback Steakhouse after seeing the Sound of Music

Monday ~ Homemade Lasagna, steamed green beans, salad & foccacia bread

Tuesday ~ grilled BBQ chicken breast, cheesy chili potatoes, broccoli & salad

Wednesday ~ Cheeseburger in Paradise after ice skating. This is getting a little old. I can’t believe I said that. I need to change up what I am ordering. I usually get salmon. Perhaps a bacon cheeseburger & fries or a grilled skirt steak salad this week.

Thursday ~ Blackened salmon, steamed brown jasmine rice, broccoli, salad & french rolls

Friday ~ Crockpot Pot Roast, potatoes & carrots with salad & french rolls.

Saturday ~ Grilled burgers on GF Buns (another new recipe from the Silly Yak group that I am going to try), sweet potato fries (homemade for the first time, usually I buy Alexia frozen), steamed veggies and salad.

I also want to give homemade Pesto a try in the very near future. I love basil and have seen some good recipes lately for Pesto. Not sure anyone in my house will eat it besides me, so I need to either make a small amount or make sure it keeps well in the fridge for at least a little while. I will get some more descriptions and recipes of things up this week as we go along, if they work out, that is. I am due for a flop any day now! LOL!!
