Weekly Menu Plan ~ August 2, 2009

It is August!!!  Holy moley, time flies!!  This week I am hosting the Gluten-free Menu Swap!  I chose cherries as my featured ingredient.  I adore cherries and have been eating them like crazy this summer.  You can find great info on cherries on Wikipedia.  I have used cherries in many different ways this year.  I top my salads with them, I eat them in yogurt, I eat them in cereal, I eat them in ice cream, I eat them straight out of the bag.  Last week I had planned on making a cherry cake, but ended up making Blueberry Chia Muffins instead because I had blueberries that needed to be used up.  What is your favorite way to eat or use cherries? 


This week is Hannah’s birthday!  She will be 7 on Thursday!!  Again, time flies!!  We had a family cookout yesterday for her and she will have a small party for her friends from school this coming weekend.  Talk about a full week of b-day fun!

Sunday ~ Rotisserie Chicken, red quinoa, grilled corn-on-the-cob & salad

Monday ~ Barbeque chicken breasts, Garlic Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, broccoli & salad.

Tuesday ~ Tacos, black beans, corn & salad (I am going out with my gal friend!)

Wednesday ~ Grilled Salmon, grilled asparagus & sweet potatoes, grilled pineapple & salad. Cherry Cake for dessert.

Thursday ~ Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin, mashed potatoes, fresh green beans & salad.

Friday ~ Pizza night!  Bob’s Red Mill veggie for me, pepperoni for the family & salad.

Saturday~ Leftovers or breakfast for dinner.

  1. Great menu! Last spring, while trying to identify the source of my son’s chronic digestive issues, we eliminated gluten from our diet. As it turns out, my son does not have Celiac disease, but I discovered how great I felt! I have no idea if I am gluten intolerant, but consistantly look for menu and dish ideas that are gluten free. Thanks!
