Menu Plan Monday – July 15, 2013

by angelaskitchen on July 15, 2013

My menu plan is now sponsored by the great people over at Better Batter Flour.  The menus will also be published at Start Gluten Free, an online resource made to welcome people into the gluten free living community and help them not feel overwhelmed by new dietary restrictions.  I am thrilled to be a small part of this vibrant community!  Stop by and say “Hi!”

GF Menu Swap-stir fry

I am hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week over.  Woo-hoo!  The theme is Stir Fry.  Stir fry is one of my favorite dinners.  Besides being delicious, it is so easy to pull together and really any combination of veggies you have on hand can be used.  Love that!  A lot of time I don’t use a recipe, just slice and sauté what is in the fridge or garden until I have enough for dinner, but I do have a few stir fry recipes that may inspire you, such as Mongolian Chicken and VeggiesTeriyaki ChickenGingered Beef and Broccoli Salad BowlStir Fry ChickenGinger-Beef Stir FryOrange Beef Lettuce WrapsCurried Shrimp and RiceStir Fried Bok Choy.  What do you like in a stir fry?


Freezer cooking plan for the week:  Chicken and Kale Stir Fry with Cauliflower “Rice” and Cashew Chicken with Bok Choy and Basic Brown Rice will both be making their way into my freezer this week.

*    *    *    *    *    *

The week’s breakfast options:  Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Zucchini Bread, scrambled eggs with garden veggies, and melon.

The week’s lunch options:  Sandwiches made with Gluten Free Wholesome Multi-Seed Bread, veggies and fruit.

Thanks for hosting the swap this week. I think I need to add stir-fry meals to our menus more often. Glad to have all your recipes to try. They all look great!
