An Asian-Inspired Gluten-Free Menu

July 7, 2008

Sometimes a girl just needs some indulgence time. And after a week of everyone being sick with high fevers, that’s what I’m hoping this coming week will be. I really want to curl up on the couch with a good book and a plate full of Chinese take-out. I took care of the book situation today with a big trip to the library. And I’ll be taking care of the Chinese cravings with a week full of Asian-inspired recipes.  This menu is a mixture of family favorites and recipes from other bloggers that I’ve been dying to try.  Vegetarian substitutions are listed in parentheses for those who are interested.

The Gluten Free Menu Swap is hosted this week by Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness. Stop by her site to see the roundup of everyone’s menus.

Gluten Free Menu: Asian Week

Update: I did my grocery shopping for the week and spent $113.91. I hit Whole Foods first for soy milk, tofu and any veggies under $1.99/lb and then stopped by a local chain grocery store for most of the dry goods and the remaining veggies. I try to check my grocery receipts as soon as I get in the car and today that paid off big time. The Whole Foods cashier has rung up 3 items incorrectly!  I took the receipt back into the store and the help desk gave me the correct price on one item and then gave me the other two items for free. The total refund ended up being $13.33.
