Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 22

October 21, 2007

We’ll be out of town this weekend, so my menu for the week is based on what is in the refrigerator that needs to be eaten. I think I did a pretty good job, since our grocery bill today was only a third of what it usually is. The meals are relatively well-balanced and I managed to sneak in the recipes that I wanted to post about.

The Gluten Free Menu Swap is hosted this week by Slacker Mom at Mrs. G.F. – Recipes for a Gluten Free Life. Visit her site to see all of the other menus that my fellow gluten free bloggers have created. The ingredient of the week is apple, and I’ve used it in the Chicken & Apple Rice Skillet – which I’ll make with tofu since we don’t eat chicken anymore (Yippee! I love not handling raw chicken!)

Sunday: Baked Eggplant and Lentil with a salad

Monday: Gluten Free Fried Brown Rice

Tuesday:Smoky Chicken Tomato Soup with Southern Cornbread

Wednesday: Chicken & Apple Rice Skillet with a salad

Thursday: Halloween Quesadillas with Cole Slaw (not the best match-up, but I’ve got a huge head of cabbage in the fridge)

Friday & Saturday: Visiting my parents for Homecoming at my high school, (It’s been 10 years!) so we’ll be eating whatever my parents choose to serve. They’re still not so sure about this whole gluten free vegetarian thing =)

Breakfast: Double batch of "Gluten Free Banana Nut Pancakes" We had these for breakfast this morning, and I put sixteen in the freezer for quick weekday breakfasts.
