Weekly Menu Plan ~ September 13, 2009

This week is Aaron’s b-day week!!  Yay for birthdays!!  He will be 29 again (for the 9th time!).  We will probably have a “date” night on Saturday to celebrate.  🙂

M-Elle is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap at La Cocina de Michelle.  The ingredient of the week is quinoa!  One of my absolute favorite grains.  There is so much you can do with quinoa and you can pretty much sub it for rice any time you want.  Even Jon likes it! 🙂  I have even made veggie burgers using quinoa before..YUM!!  Thanks for hosting, M-Elle. 

Sunday ~ BBQ Chicken Breasts, roasted kabocha squash, asparagus & salad

Monday ~ Grilled Salmon, quinoa, broccoli & salad

Tuesday ~ Grilled Teryaki Turkey Burgers, baked sweet potatoes, corn & salad

Wednesday ~ Creamy Pumpkin Brown Rice in Acorn Squash, Chicken Breast & salad

Thursday ~ Spaghetti & veggie marinara and salad

Friday ~ Leftovers or pizza night

Saturday ~ Date night! 

Baked Goods


Pumpkin Bread
