I can’t believe it’s Monday again and time for another menu plan! For some reason we had a lot of leftovers floating around in the fridge last week so there were several meals we didn’t get to. I also had a gluten reaction so I didn’t eat a whole lot or feel like cooking a whole lot. We did have the spaghetti and it was wonderful! And my lovely husband grilled some salmon on Saturday while I was at work and it was a great relief to not have to worry about the responsibility of cooking when I wasn’t home. Now onto this week’s menu:
The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Celiac Family this week is Mexican food for Cinco de Mayo. We will be having Tacos. As usual it get a little complicated for me when making meat based meals for my family as to what I should eat myself, but I did find a recipe for Spicy Smoked Portobello Taco filling from a cookbook I got out of the library called, “Quick Fix Vegan.” We usually have corn chips instead of corn tortillas and guacamole is a must for me! Here’s the rest of this week’s plan:
Breakfast: Paleo Cinnamon Rolls with blackberries
Lunch: Steaks for the family and grilled Portobello steaks for me with grilled zucchini and onion, sweet potatoes, and roasted broccoli for me.
Dinner: Rhubarb and Strawberry Crisp (it was for dessert, but everyone was stuffed after dinner so we saved it for later!) I was so excited to find this recipe because I didn’t have to make any modifications to it to be able to eat it and it was delightful!
Rest of the week:
Low Sugar, Whole Grain Blueberry Orange Muffins
Leftover Paleo Cinnamon rolls
Smoothie–Maybe a mixed berry smoothie
Waffles…I somehow doubt I will change from my favorite recipe: GF Vegan Waffles
Eggs of some sort or other
Pancakes if I have time: Banana “Oat” Pancakes
Hippie Loaf with my mom’s special meatloaf sauce, hot potato salad, and a veggie (Bumped from last week)
Chef salad (with croutons, bacon, boiled egg, and all sorts of veggies) (Bumped from last week!)
Tacos/Taco Salad: regular ground beef, and Spicy Smoked Portobello Taco filling for me and Refried Beans
Grilled Vegetable Wraps (with a homemade Flax Seed Wrap from “Wheat Belly”)
BBQ Chop Wrap from “Happy Herbivore”
And of course…LEFTOVERS!
