Weekly Menu Plan with Gluten Free Ideas April 15th 2013

Menu Plan Monday

Welcome to another week. School is back for us this week, a relief really as we have been pretty busy this past week!

Inspiration for this week’s menu comes from browsing the internet looking for tasty dishes using the supplies up in the pantry and fridge. Haven’t had time for a proper shop so ‘shopping’ at home instead – it’s a great way to use up things you might have forgotten about. Also remember many recipes can be adjusted to suit what you have or to make gluten free, I’ll share my adjustments besides each dish name.

Weekly Menu Plan

MondayRicotta Ham and Tomato Lasagne – I’ll use gluten free lasagne sheets and leave the ham out and use mushrooms instead.

Tuesday - Cheese Crusted Salmon Pea and Potato Bake – oh my this looks good, I have frozen peas and corn mixed so I’ll use that and make sure the pasta sauce is gluten free to have a gluten free dish.

Wednesday - Oven Baked Sausage and Tomato Risotto – as I have heaps of tomatoes left over from making chutney last week, I’ll use fresh tomatoes instead of tinned and use a little more vegie stock. (make sure it’s gluten free) The sausages I will serve separately for the boys.

Thursday - Tuna Burritos – I haven’t tried making Burritos with tuna yet, this should be good! Using fresh tomatoes again instead of tinned and will use gluten free tortillas for me.

Friday - Simple Roast Pumpkin Soup – love roasting pumpkin for soup (and many other dishes) just tastes so good. Use gluten free vegie stock to make gluten free. Serve with heaps of toast

Saturday - Polenta Pizza – which is a carry over from last week.

Sunday - Simple Supper Night

Have a great week!

Tuesday - Asian Roasted Chicken Legs with home made seasoned wedges, with an Oven Baked Pumpkin Risotto for me – easy to make gluten free by using gluten free stock.

Thursday - Gluten Free Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Friday - Gluten Free Tuna and Mushroom Bake

Saturday - Polenta Pizza – which is gluten free but check the ingredients as not all polenta is gluten free

Sunday - Simple Supper Night

Menu Plan Monday

I hope your Easter went well and you enjoyed the extra long weekend. We sure did. School Holidays have started so my eldest boy and I will be cooking the evening meal together this week. When we went to the library he picked some cooking books, Annabel’s Kitchen was one so we will be cooking from that this week. My son also helped choose the menu.

Did you happen to see my exciting news last week? I released my very first ebook, Gluten Free Kids. A big thank you to those of you that have purchased, tweeted and shared it on Facebook.

This week is the Digital Parents Conference. It’s held in Sydney this year so I am hopping on a plane tomorrow for the rest of the week. Looking forward to learning lots and seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Hubby is staying home with the boys as I am going solo. I am looking forward to some me time but I know I’ll miss them like crazy.

My Menu Plan with Gluten Free Meal Ideas – 11th March 2013

March 12, 2013 Comments off

I hope those of us that had a public holiday yesterday enjoyed  it. It was nice my end. Hot but nice. I am in for a super busy week so very simple meals own our menu plan.

Last Tuesday my oldest and I had our ‘date’ at the library, we browsed the shelves and found some great books. Amongst them was this book.

Cookbook for Girls

 

First off – Cookbook for Girls? Since when can’t boys cook? Anyway, I told Master 8 if he liked it he should borrow it and he asked me to put a few dishes on this weeks menu. Whom am I to argue? So a couple of recipes have come from this book – which by the way has nothing girly about it inside. It was published in 2009, no author as such.

Weekly Menu Plan

Monday – Baked Potatoes with various toppings

Tuesday – Gluten Free Pasta Bake

Wednesday – I am trying the Baked Falafel Recipe from Planning with Kids which looks gluten free as long as gluten free baking powder is used.

Thursday – Cream Cheese Burgers – recipe from Cookbook with Girls

Friday – Baked Eggs and Cheesy Potato Skins – both from Cookbook with Girls – both of these recipes look gluten free from the ingredients but as I don’t eat meat I will have Gluten Free Vegetarian Bean Burgers

Saturday – Pumpkin Soup and Toasted Sandwiches

Sunday – Simple Supper Night

What a busy weekend, so busy I didn’t get a chance to plan my weekly menu plan so here I am doing it on the fly. Oh I don’t like this, don’t like it all, too much for this likes-to-be-organised person so from now on I am going to do 2 weeks in advance to always have a back up.

The good thing is I have a decent enough range of recipes on here that I can do it on the fly, that’s the good thing about blogging your menu plans ever week.

Weekly Menu Plan

MondayBaked Taco’s - I tell you these are the bee’s knees, so so yummy and easy. I make them with mince for the boys and just mashed beans for me, they are also gluten free.

TuesdayGluten Free Tuna and Potato Bake with lots of steamed vegies

Wednesday – Sausage’s for the boys, Gluten Free Potato Bake for all which I have recently been making with 0% Chobani Greek Yoghurt instead of the cream and it’s just as tasty and way better for you. For me I’ll have the Eggplant and Lentil Balls I discovered the other week.

ThursdayGluten Free Eggplant Rolls – with a yummy salad

FridayRoasted Pumpkin and Vegetable Risotto, the boys will have Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken as well.

SaturdayCauliflower Pizza Crust – can’t wait to try this yummy gluten free pizza

Sunday – Simple Supper Night

Have a great rest of the week!
