Whew!  Better late than never, right?  Sorry about getting my menu plan up late this week.  I had it posted bight and early Monday morning at Start Gluten Free, but after the weekend blew up, it never made it over to my blog… (oops!)  Every time I think my schedule is loosening up, something else comes along to fill it back up.  I must be a mom, huh?  😉  Any-hoo, let’s get to my menu plan, shall we?  No matter how crazy a week can get, a menu plan always saves my sanity when it is time for dinner.

Gluten Free Menu Swap-Broccolini


Heather at Celiac Family will be hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  The theme is “Broccolini.”   I don’t use it as much as I’ld like, and when I do it is usually to replace broccoli or asparagus.  I do have one recipe developed with broccolini that is quick to cook up and that I really love, Chicken Sausage Broccolini Quinoa.  Do you serve broccolini?


Freezer cooking plan for the week:  Chicken Broccoli Casserole and Enchilada Meatballs will both be making their way into my freezer this week.

*    *    *    *    *    *

The week’s breakfast options:  Banana Pancakes or scrambled eggs with garden veggies and Apple Loaf.

The week’s lunch options:  Turkey with tomato or almond butter with banana sandwiches made with Gluten Free Wholesome Multi-Seed Bread, veggies and fruit.
