Menu Plan Monday – June 29, 2015

by angelaskitchen on June 30, 2015

 

Hello! It’s short and sweet (and a little late) for me this week. The girls are off to Girl Scout camp and I get to help in the kitchen and where ever else they need me. :)

Heather of Celiac Family is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap. The theme is Head over to her blog for some tasty menu planning inspiration!

(I am not able to upload photos at this time. The camp connection is a little wonky. Imagine a cool watermelon tag here and fin pics from camp. I’ll have to update when I get back.)

Our menu this week is all camp food all the time. We’ve brought our own gluten free, dairy free versions of all the camp deliciousness that is happening.

Caddie breakfast for week is continental. Cereal, bagels, pop tarts, juice. My girls have gluten free bagels and dairy free cream cheese. I made a veggie packed egg bake for myself.

Sunday Caddie training day:
Snack: granola bar
Dinner: foil dinner with ham, potatoes and cheese. Oriental salad with coleslaw mix, ramen noodles, etc. Box Oven Brownies
Because the girls are training in a couple different groups, meaning some will be eating diner at 4 and some at 7, there is a back up snack/meal of hotdogs.

Monday: Lunch: Wrap sandwiches (ham, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese, ranch, tortilla), pickles, chips, apples, and s’mores.
Dinner: Baked Potato Bar Night with veggies and brownies

Tuesday: Walking Tacos (hamburger, cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream – build your own), spanish rice, fruit, dirt cups (chocolate pudding, crushed oreos, gummy worm).

Dinner: Everyone goes home to rest and refresh. We’ll probably have omelets and a salad.

Wednesday: Pita Pizzas (pita stuffed with cheese, sauce, pepperoni – build your own – we’ve got gluten free wraps folded in half and stuffed with pizza ingredients), lettuce salad, bananas, chocolate creatures (Chinese crunchy noodles, mini marshmallow, chocolate flavored almond bark to make little haystacks – (we’ve got gluten free chocolate crispy bars).
Dinner: Pasta bar, salad, cake. I made a gluten and dairy free lasagna for us.

Thursday :  Girl Scout Gumbo (hamburger, vegetable soup, cheese, onion, green pepper, served on Fritos – I have a gluten and diary free version), Milky Way Salad (Milky way pieces, apples, bananas, cool whip – We have vanilla coconut-based yogurt with apple slices and gluten and dairy free chocolate chips), box oven brownies.

Dinner: Hot dogs, lettuce salad, chips, watermelon, cookie.

Friday Breakfast – French toast sticks, syrup, bacon, fruit, apple juice.

SummerMango

The Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted this week by Heather of Celiac Family. She has picked mango as the theme ingredient. My family adores mango! It is the one flavor they ALL agree on, even my little picky girl. If there is mango, my kids are IN! :) Besides eating strait from the peel, I use mangos in smoothies (like in Mango Spinach Smoothie and Peach-Mango Smoothie) and in curries for added sweetness, such as in Chicken Mango Curry. I also like to pair mangos with blueberries in Chicken Blueberry Mango Salad and with melon in Curried Chicken Cantaloupe and Mango Salad. How do you use mangos?

SummerBlack

It is time for the Gluten Free Dairy Free Menu Swap! I’ll be hosting this week’s swap and blackberries are the theme. Due to our planting zone I don’t have any true blackberry plants (boo-hoo!), but I do have several black raspberry plants. This year they look like they are going to be loaded with berries! Woo-hoo! Around here we like eating our blackberries straight out of hand, but also enjoy them on salad, made into a syrup or jam, in breakfast cookies and in quick breads and muffins and in Lemon Berry Donut Holes. How do you like your blackberries?

SummerApricot-300x248

Today the Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Heather of Celiac Family. We are moving on to summer fruits, with Apricots being this week’s theme.  We eat apricots fresh when they are in season, but mostly we use dried apricots, including chopping them and using them instead of raisins or other dried fruit when baking or on a salad. I also always have 100% fruit apricot jam on hand. It’s my go to super easy glaze (sometimes plain, sometimes with mustard mixed in) for chicken or pork when I am in a hurry but want to dress up our meal. What’s your favorite way to serve up apricots?
