Menu Plan August 16, 2009

10 days.  Anyone know what happens in 10 days?  School starts!!!  Yes, the day that has most parents dancing  in the streets and that most kids dread – the beloved first day of school.  If you haven’t seen it yet, check out my Back-to-School post.  This week has us running around getting things done for school.  Jon picks up his schedule on Tuesday, Hannah has an open house next Sunday.  I am going to try to fit in last pool and Zoo visits and maybe even head someplace to go blueberry picking! 

I bought lots of new, fun produce to cook with this week. Yucca root, red beets (to roast), acorn squash & spaghetti squash. (I have had the last 2 before, but I am doing new things with them). 

Sunday ~ Grilled chicken, baked sweet potato with cinnamon & Fage, fresh green beans & okra and salad

Monday ~ Mexican Pizzas (black beans & avocado for me; ground turkey for the kids), Cilantro/Lime Rice, corn & salad.

Tuesday ~ Honey Baked Lentils in Acorn Squash and large salad

Wednesday ~ Mediterranean Tuna Pasta (recipe to come this week), asparagus & salad

Thursday ~ Chicken Parmesan, quinoa pasta, broccoli & salad

Friday ~ Homemade Bob’s Red Mill mini pizzas (each picks their own toppings), veggies & salad

Saturday ~ Bday party & I have a fun night planned with a friend and some other GF peeps!

Peach Cobbler

Cheryl over at Gluten-Free Goodness is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap & the ingredient of the week is peaches!  I love peaches!!  I like to chop them up for my cereal bowls, top my waffles with them, top my cottage cheese with them, top my Greek yogurt with them.  I really do love them.  I am going to attempt a peach cobbler this week, too! šŸ˜‰  Thanks for hosting, Cheryl!!

Also, don’t forget to check out Orgjunkie for lots more menu plans.

  3. I love that you post your meal plans for the week. I wish I was that organized! šŸ˜€

    • Thanks! It is one of the only ways I can keep my head in line! LOL! If I don’t plan, there is a lot of fending for oneself & the kids don’t appreiciate that so much! šŸ˜‰

  4. Let me know how the Yucca root is. I have never made it, but want to give it a try.
    The Mexican pizza looks great! It would be a nice change from the ordinary cheeseless pizzas I eat, esp since I can’t have cheese. With all the flavor from the beans, tomato and avocado I def wouldn’t miss the cheese šŸ™‚

  5. Great looking menu!
