{Gluten Free} Meal Plan 4.18.11

It’s a struggle not to start every single one of these posts with a diatribe against Mondays. On the other hand, Monday is kind of like a blank slate, so I suppose when you look at it that way, it isn’t so bad. And besides, the kids are all in school on Mondays, so hip hip hooray!

We are still in the thick of baseball season so I’m trying to keep dinners simple.

MONDAY: Gluten-free brown rice spaghetti with meat sauce and a spinach salad. (I have some browned ground beef with peppers and onions in freezer, left over from another meal. I’ll just add a jar of organic spaghetti sauce to it and call it a day.)

TUESDAY: Chicken Noodle Soup, but with rice, not noodles.

WEDNESDAY: Kelly’s Low-Carb Sausage Balls with rice and sautéed swiss chard.

THURSDAY: Marinated London Broil (I didn’t end up making it last week so it’s still in the freezer), brussels sprouts with caramelized onion and bacon, Dill Fingerling Potatoes.

FRIDAY: Lydia’s Sauteed Chicken, Spinach and Mushrooms in a Butter Sage Sauce and brown rice to sop up all that nummy sauce.

SATURDAY: Shrimp and Grits? (I never did make it when it was on my menu plan before; the price of wild shrimp is daunting, but this week I might just make the splurge.)

EASTER SUNDAY: I’m actually not sure what our plans are, but if I end up cooking, I’ll bake a ham, make my gluten-free mac and cheese, and roast or sauté some sort of veggie. OR I suppose I could make the shrimp and grits for Easter.

  1. It all looks so yummy. I was working on my meal plan and shopping list when I came to look something up. I’ve since forgotten what that was and been sucked into blog reading. Back. to. work!

  2. Have you tried kale salads yet? They are my newest favorite lunch. I already use kale in my smoothies and in soups, but I just started doing the ‘massaged kale salad’ thing last week. I went through 3 bunches of kale in one week. 🙂

    Happy cooking this week.

    1. You know, I am ashamed to say that I have never bought kale. I KNOW! I am not sure why except that I just haven’t ever had it or used it. But I hear it’s great in smoothies.
