Last week I skipped Menu Plan Monday and the whole week was one. huge. struggle. when it came to meals. I used up all my leftovers and pizza passes on the evenings that I had events, and then then the weekend rolled around, and we were too busy decorating for Christmas and cutting down the
perfect Charlie Brown Christmas tree (more on that later) to keep up with the grocery shopping and the cooking, and when you’re gluten free, you can’t just order pizza and call it a night. Suffice it to say, it was SLIM PICKIN’s.
So today I have no choice but to get back on the menu planning wagon. I must admit, I am really getting tired of the same 5 meals so I need to find some inspiration. Here’s what I came up with.
MONDAY: Chicken Stir Fry, brown rice. How do I always forget this? So easy and so yummy and the whole family loves it. AND it appears that I have never posted my go-to stir fry recipe, so I shall take a plethora of pictures tonight.
TUESDAY: Pot Roast. This will be my last chuck roast from the cow we bought last spring. I’m down to ground beef and more ground beef. Anyone got a good gluten-free ground beef recipe for me??
WEDNESDAY: Navy Beans with Italian Sausage. I never made this the last time it was on my agenda, and I’m looking forward to trying it. I may throw some butternut squash on the table too. I’m not sure if the flavors mesh, but I feel the need to serve a veggie with it.
THURSDAY: Maple Dijon Chicken and something green. That is IF I get to the farm to get more chicken breasts. Although I really should make something with whole chickens because I already have those.
FRIDAY: Salmon Cakes, mashed rutabaga, and oven roasted broccoli. This dinner combo is always a hit in our house.
What are you making this week?
