{Gluten Free} Meal Plan 9.19.11

This is a short week as we’re going to my husband’s 20th college reunion this week in western PA. Good times. Since it’s a bit of a haul, we decided to make a long weekend of it! Which means I only have to plan 3 meals this week. WOOT!

Menu Plan Monday

MONDAY: Chicken Gruyere – consistently one of my most popular posts.

TUESDAY: Leftover taco meal – inspired by Kelly’s “Taco Soup” concoction, I am going to throw together something using leftover meatloaf and london broil (I baked it so it has some juices with it). I’ll try to shred the london broil up real fine so it blends into the ground beef from the meatloaf. Then I’ll add some Mexican spices and peppers and such and let it simmer for an hour or so. I’ll throw it into some taco shells, grate some cheese, and call it a dinner. I’m thinking of putting together a salad to go with it to balance out the meal.

WEDNESDAY: something with seafood. Either salmon cakes, or if I have time to pick up some fresh wild salmon at the store, I will make this Baked Salmon that our family always enjoys. (I use gluten-free breadcrumbs of course.) Probably with roasted broccoli – that’s always good with seafood! (Yes, that recipe is for roasted asparagus, but it’s the same concept.)

And then we’re off! Hopefully I can get some good fall photos while we’re out there. I’m dying to update my blog header.

  1. I don’t know how I’ve missed your Chicken Gruyere recipe before, but I am going to steal it for next week’s menu. Hope you have fun at the reunion!

    Does he stay in touch with many of his old schoolmates? Has he gone to earlier reunions? Have a blast!

  2. The chicken gruyere recipe looks a bit similar to the recipe you just posted-chicken with spinach and mushroom sauce. Is it? I made the spinach/mushroom recipe last night, and the family liked it. My 13 yr old loves anything with mushrooms, so “it’s a keeper”! That’s what she told me. I’ve never had gruyere before. What does it taste like? Enjoy the reunion!

    1. No, they are different. Gruyere has a very distinctive taste – it is a type of Swiss cheese. It is very rich and delicious. This one has a few more steps (you bread the chicken, I think) and there is no spinach so you have to prepare a veggie as a side dish. It is very yummy and great for company you want to impress. 🙂

  3. I’ve been a subscriber for a while but haven’t commented, and I had to comment today! I was loving this idea for a blog post – I imagine it helps to keep you on task for meals – and then I saw at the bottom of the post that there is actually a link party for this! Great idea! I might just have to join in. Thanks for all the informative and inspiring info (on all of your blogs 🙂
