Last week I adapted Once a Month Mom’s September 2009 Breakfasts and Lunches.  Now it’s dinner time!  Below is the September 2009 Dinner menu with links to the original recipe.  I did a bit of tweeking due to the heavy dairy use, so a couple of the recipes I have are different than the original plan, but still delicious.  Be sure to check out Once a Month Mom and her great site!

The original plan’s Dinners (these links will NOT be GFCF, but I want you to see the original inspiration.  For the gluten free dairy free versions, scroll down for links):

 

The Plan: Please note that all recipes have been altered (increased quantities) to meet the needs of TWO people participating in a OAM Cooking Day. It is indicated on each recipe whether it has been doubled or quadrupled for your convenience. If you are just one person or would like to make less of a particular recipe, you will need to make the adjustments on your own to the recipe and to the grocery shopping list.  (Angela’s note:  I will just cook this all as one person as my family is so big and hungry!  The assignments helps me break the tasks up to have the kids help and to help me remember what to do next, so that will be how I use them.)

Helpful Hint: Assign one person to be Person A and one Person to be Person B

Read through the instructions and be familiar with the tasks that you are responsible for during the day.

Washing dishes as you go will likely be necessary, it is not written into the instructions as everyone has different needs and equipment. It is best to have whoever finished a task wash the dishes they just used before proceeding onto further tasks.

Instructions to make your cooking day go more smoothly:

  • 8 pounds of chicken will be cooked in the crock pot (it does not need to be thawed before cooking (Chicken and Broccoli Casserole and Chicken & Chilies Casserole).
  • Thaw – 16 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Night Before:

  • Make the “cheese” sauce you have chosen, either the Cashew Cheesy Sauce or the Mild “Cheese” Sauce.  Put in fridge.
  • Start the presoaking stage of the corn bread for Mexican Cornbread Casserole.
  • Put 8 pounds of chicken into a crock pot, add 3/4 cup of water and cook for approximately 8 hours on low or until chicken is done.
  • Optional (but HIGHLY recommended) – chop up all vegetables, cook 2 pounds of hamburger, cook/steam 2 2/3 cups of brown rice (you will need 8 cups cooked rice).

You will need to pick the “cheese” sauce you could like to use.  One is nut free, which is a great option for those with tree nut allergies.  Our family likes them both.

Both “cheese” sauces can be found here.

Pineapple Pork Chops (QUAD of original recipe)

Serves: 16

Author/Source:  lazydaygourmet

 

16 pork chops

1 Cup gluten free soy sauce

1 Cup maple syrup

4 Tablespoon sesame seeds

4 Tablespoon sesame oil

Coarse sea salt and pepper to taste

For Pineapple Sauce:

1 Cup maple syrup

1 Cup balsamic vinegar

4 – 16 ounce cans pineapple crushed in juice

 

 

Mix soy sauce, maple syrup, sesame seeds, and sesame oil.  Divide between 4 gallon sized freezer bags.  Salt and pepper the pork chops. Add the pork chops to the bag, and turn to coat.  Seal bags.

Mix pineapple sauce ingredients and divide between 4 quart sized freezer bags.  Place quart bags and gallon bags together.  Freeze.

 

 

Cooking Instructions: Thaw. Heat grill to Medium Hot. Place the marinated pork chops on the grill once it has preheated.  Discard the rest of the marinade. Grill the pork chops until  done, around 6 minutes per side.  (You can also pan fry or bake in a 350 degree oven until cooked through.)  While the pork chops are grilling, pour thawed pineapple mixture to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, until pineapple starts to break down and create its own syrup goodness! Serve the pork chops hot with pineapple on top.

Containers Needed:  4 gallon sized freezer bags and 4 quart sized freezer bags

Thanks so much! A friend went on bed rest recently and has 3 small children. I wanted to help out and she said gluten and dairy free I knew OAM Mom would come to the rescue!
