Menu Plan Monday, September 14th!



We had an exciting adventure cooking dinner Saturday night. I had bought some plain coconut yogurt thinking it would be perfect for the beef stroganoff that I was planning to make. When we opened it to put it in, it had some green fuzzy stuff growing in it! Gross! I was thinking on my feet that night though–I grabbed the dairy free cream cheese I had in my fridge and when the dish didn’t have the desired tang you usually get from sour cream, we added some apple cider vinegar! Ta-da! Diary/gluten-free beef stroganoff that even the pickiest eater in my house devoured!

The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is pomegranates! Pomegranates are a funny fruit to try and eat–I remember trying one once as part of a homeschool unit! I prefer to use the juice to flavor a smoothie. It will be interesting to see what kind of recipes you can use pomegranates in!


My breakfast this morning–plus a banana! I almost felt normal šŸ™‚ I was hungry for muffins this week, so I made two different kinds and boy are they yummy!

Breakfasts: cereal
Lots of Double Chocolate Blender Muffins–Still going strong on these šŸ™‚
Lighter Blueberry Muffins
Apple Cider Muffins
German Apple Pancakes These were super yummy!!
Sausage Potato Breakfast Taquitos
Zucchini and Sweet Potato Hash Still need to make this!

Beef Stroganoff over rice
Bacon/Mushroom Frittata This got skipped last week.
Fried Rice
Beans and rice (or hotdogs)
Tomato Soup
Smoothie and Popcorn
Pizza, salad

Healthy dessert: Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream

    • I haven’t had time to make that yet, but I have all the ingredients so I’m hoping I’ll have time today! I love simple recipes and I’ve been dying for a cheaper alternative to dairy free ice cream!


  2. I have a hard time with pomegranates, the little seeds in them just never sit right with me. Oh well, looks like some delicious meals for this week. Have a good one!
