by angelaskitchen on August 12, 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!Screen Shot 2013-08-03 at 11.23.28 AM

Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  Besides eating them fresh or as prunes, one of my favorite ways to eat plums is in Slow Cooker Plum-Balsamic Chicken.  I have also made prunes wrapped in bacon as an appetizer and I adore plum sauce for dipping.  Yum!  What is your favorite way to eat plums?


Freezer cooking plan for the week:  Corn dogs and Slow Cooker Plum-Balsamic Chicken will both be making their way into my freezer this week.

The week’s breakfast options:  Apple Cider MuffinsChocolate Zucchini Bread, scrambled eggs with garden veggies, and melon.

Tuesday:  Sesame Chicken Veggie Salad with Zucchini Muffins

For the freezer:   Make a double batch of Corn Dogs, one batch for dinner and one for the freezer.  While eating dinner, allow second batch to cool.  After dinner, place into a  freezer safe container separated by waxed paper, remove as much air as possible, then seal, label and freeze.  Getting ready for the State Fair and Back to School time!

Angela, that slow cooker chicken looks awesome! I want some right now…and I have to wait because I’ve used up our plum jam. Woe is me. Can’t wait to try it!

Prunes wrapped in bacon sounds interesting. Do you just wrap them, and fry? bake?
