Menu Plan Monday – 1/2/12


Well friends, it’s time to get back to posting my weekly Menu Plan.  I haven’t done this for the past 6 months or so, and I know it is something I need to do to help keep me accountable to creating a menu plan each week!  So, I will once again be adding this to my weekly blogging schedule.  🙂  {This week I am a day late, since we just got back in town last night from our Florida vacation!}

All of our meals are now Wheat-Free, Corn-Free, and (partially cheese-free: at least for my husband’s portion of the meal).  Zoe is sensitive to all wheat and corn products, and my husband has a strong sensitivity to whey(all cheeses).  So our menu now centers around avoiding these items.  It can be tricky sometimes, I can’t just make whatever sounds or looks good….it has to accommodate these new food sensitivities.

For our breakfast we usually do something quick and easy, same for lunch (which  is often dinner leftovers).  However, I am going to plan one special (allergy accomodating) breakfast a week, and also, 1 special (allergy accommodating) desert per week.

So, here is our plan for this week:

MONDAY:  Baked Pasta, made with homemade ground turkey meatsauce & rice pasta

TUESDAY:  {our extra-curr. activity night – so it always needs to be quick and easy!} Leftovers, salad

WEDNESDAY:  {Care Group Night} Grilled Lime-Cilantro Chicken Breast, Black beans, broccoli

THURSDAY:  Garlic Grilled Shrimp, Asparagus, homemade rolls

FRIDAY:  Burgers, fresh winter fruit salad, beans  (bun-free for Zoe, and Cheese-free for Jared)

SATURDAY:  Leftovers

SUNDAY:  Chicken Tortilla Soup


Special Breakfast this week: Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, fresh picked off the tree Florida Navel Oranges (from our Florida trip!)

Special Dessert this week:  Pumpkin Dump Cake and GF Pumpkin Bread with corn starch free icing  (need to use up the rest of those pumpkins from our garden!!)
