Menu Plan Monday July 22!


I was so thankful for the Chia Seed pudding last week! I spent 3 days at the beach with my mom and sister having a Girl’s Getaway and they both eat dairy. So part of breakfast every morning for them was a big bowl of yogurt topped with fruit…not something I can participate in if I expect to not be in pain for a couple of weeks. I remembered the Chia Seed pudding and whipped up a batch and then I too could join in the big bowl of something topped with fresh fruit. It was a delightful way to start the day. I used strawberries and kiwis this time around and it turned out better than any of my previous attempts.

The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Celiac Family this week is grapes. I don’t usually buy grapes because they are on the dirty dozen and I can’t afford the organic kind, unfortunately. I do occasionally have to splurge on grapes because they are such a nice way to cool off. I usually eat them raw, but have been known to pop them in the freezer for an even better way to beat the heat!

This week we’re still cleaning out the freezer (I never knew I had so many bits of random leftovers in there!) and I’m looking ahead to school starting in a few weeks. We enrolled our daughter in Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) and I have a feeling it will be a bit of a shock to have to get up and go every morning. So I’m planning a couple of freezer breakfasts every week. We’ll have some that day and then I’ll freeze some for those panicked mornings in a few weeks!

My breakfast from yesterday!

My breakfast from yesterday!

Eggs with blackberry coffee cake (recipe coming up this week!)
Meatloaf (everyone was supposed to have this, but I couldn’t remember if I made the meatloaf gluten-free or not! So my daughter had some chicken nuggets and I had a salmon fillet)
mashed potatoes
Fruit, pickles, crackers

Rest of the week:
Leftover coffee cake
Buckwheat granola
Pumpkin French Toast Sticks
Smoothie, toast

Meatloaf sandwich my husband, different sandwiches for my daughter and me
Tomato sandwiches (our tomato plants are taking over the world!)
Shrimp stir fry
Melon Spinach Salad topped with fish
Beans and Rice
Fish, sweet potatoes, veggie
Pizza, salad
We’ll continue with cleaning out the freezer/fridge and of course eat up any leftovers!
