Weekly Meal Plan ~ December 14, 2008 ~ The Week Before Christmas

Wow…10 days until Christmas. I had better get my rear end in gear this week. Normally I have all kinds of Christmas cookies made and frozen by now. I am slacking with a capital “S”. Now I haven’t exactly been lounging around eating Bon Bons (are those even GF?), I have been busy with life. Funny how that happens, huh? This week is no different, busy as ever. Hannah is done with figure skating for the year, though, so that takes one activity away for Wednesday, though we still have Jon’s hockey practice that night.

Here we go!

Sunday ~ Inside Out Burgers ~ Take #2 (Take #1 didn’t go so well…all the toppings inside seeped out), sweet potato fries, steamed broccoli sauteed portabella mushrooms for me and the banana bread I made for dessert.

Monday ~ Tacos or Mexican Pizzas (with turkey meat), refried beans & Mexican Rice

Tuesday ~ Salmon with Thai Sweet Chile Sauce, steamed brown rice, sauteed zucchini & okra and salad

Wednesday ~ Breakfast for dinner (egg scrambles with sausage & cheese), sweet potato hash browns and GF english muffins

Thursday ~ Roast Chicken, mashed Yukon gold potatoes, steamed broccoli & salad.

Friday ~ Pizza of some sort, steamed veggies & salad.

Saturday ~ probably take-out or going out. I have an ornament exchange at 6:00 PM.

  1. […] at Gluten-Free is Life is feeling a little rushed in the preparing-for-Christmas department, and I’m not surprised […]

  2. Yum! All your sweets sound incredible! I will be looking forward to your gingersnap recipe – unlike the rest of my family, I’m not that into chocolate. But ginger gets me every time!

    I laughed when I saw the Inside Out Burgers on your menu plan. At first my brain didn’t even compute what they were, but then I read your comment about the toppings falling out. When I was little those would be the traditional dinner contribution from my best friend and I on camping trips with our families. But we would get more and more creative with the fillings – some folks would end up with ketchup or mustard or pickles, but some would end up with marshmallows!

  3. Oh! I forgot to ask in my last comment if you would like to link to this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap in your post (http://inmybox.wordpress.com/2008/12/14/another-vegetarian-gluten-free-menu-plan-monday/) so people who are enjoying your menu can find other GF inspiration as well!

  4. Hi!

    Yes, I meant to link this AM when I left a comment on your blog, but got busy and forgot. I am off to do that right now. 😉

  5. Oh, I meant to say that I will make sure to send you a link to my gingersnap recipe. 🙂
