Menu Plan – November 8, 2009

Last week had to be the saddest week of my life.  As I shared last week, my nephew passed away on 10/31/2009, just 22 days after his brother passed away.  Thursday around 3 AM, I got up and headed to Atlanta with Hannah and my Grandmother so that we could be there in time to attend the memorial service for Jack.  I continue to pray for Kelly, Greg & Noah as they begin this extremely hard journey down the road of recovery.

Now I am trying to organize my stuff and get ready for the start of a new week here at home.  What a whirlwind last week was.  Lots of planned things got shelved.  Time to play catch up, though my heart just isn’t in it.

This week’s gluten-free menu swap is hosted by Cheryl at Gluten-free Goodness and her theme is carrots.  I love carrots!  My favorite way to eat them is roasted, but I also made Cranberry Glazed Carrots for Thanksgiving last year and they were fantastic!!  Thanks for hosting, Cheryl!

Sunday – Rotisserie Chicken, sweet potato hash browns, asparagus & salad

Monday – BBQ Chicken Tenders,  coconut brown rice, roasted brussel sprouts & salad

Tuesday – Herb Roasted Pork Loin, baked potatoes, broccoli & salad

Wednesday – Mexican night – pizzas or tacos, white corn & salad

Thursday – Turkey Burgers, butternut squash fries, zucchini & salad

Friday – pizza night (homemade veggie & pepperoni) and salad

Saturday – Anniversary celebration (attempt #2)

  1. My heart goes out to you, your sister and your families as you begin the healing process after losing such precious little ones. (((Hugs))).

    I was reading your menu plan and clicked on your link for Brussels sprouts. I couldn’t help but laugh at the timing, seeing I just made a post on the subject of Brussels sprouts… I agree with your assessment, “you either love them or hate them, there is no in between.” I am pretty blunt where I stand in the opening sentence of my post! LOL!

    Heidi 🙂

  2. Kim,

    I’m sorry to hear of your losses and hope that you and your family and friends will be able to take extra care of each other through this time.

  3. […] of Gluten Free is Life has had several big losses in the past month and so she is working on regrouping. So please send […]

  4. What a hard month for your family! My heart goes out to all of you.

    What a delicious and healthy menu plan! I am especially excited about the cranberry glazed carrots. I always need something do with leftover cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving. (Last year I made GF cobbler!

    We’re still raving here about the chocolate pumpkin loaf I made from your blog a few weeks back, so I have a feeling I should try these pumpkin cookies as well.

    • Thank you! I am so glad you like the chocolate pumpkin loaf. That cranberry cobbler looks great! 🙂 Let me know if you like the pumpkin cookies. 🙂

  5. I love your blog. I have a question about Worchestershire sauce. I thought it was a no-no. The Lea & Perrins in Canada has malt vinegar from barley. I am making your turkey burgers tonight and can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

    • Hi Hillary!

      Thank you for reading! 🙂 Lea & Perrin’s in the US is GF. Do you have French’s in Canada? It is also GF.

      I hope you enjoy your burgers! 🙂 Let me know how you like them.
