Categotry Archives: Menu Planning
If you haven’t visited the Crockpot Lady’s site, you should! She has some great recipes and she usually cooks gluten free, which is great! She also has written two cookbooks, I got the first one from the library and really have enjoyed reading it. I also follow her blog.
You really don’t think about how much time and effort it takes to get moved in. Especially when your daily life is still so demanding. Still hoping to settle into a good routine, while at the same time making progress with all these endless boxes piled up!
Busy week, planning to sleep in our new house next Saturday! So excited, yet exhausted also. Here is my tentative menu plan for this week, what I have planned so far anyway. This week is not day specific, as I am going to be winging it a lot and I’ll do whatever I feel is easiest at the moment.
Chicken Enchilada casserole
Fajita Beef with something
Apple Chicken Sausages
We will probably end up getting some kind of take out a couple of times. Mellow Mushroom is another restaurant we have had success with.
The weeks of this year are just flashing by! It’s amazing how far into March we already are. I hope that where you live you are seeing many signs of spring, not like a friend of mine who just had snow! Though she said that there was snow on the mountain and daffodils in the fields. So even in the midst of an unexpected winter storm, she too is seeing signs of spring. I love how spring reminds us of the Resurrection and new life in Christ. I hope you are seeing this in your life as well as in nature.

I make the crust with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust. I actually get three crusts out of one bag. I use the Pampered Chef Stones – 1 large bar pan, 1 large round and 1 rectangle. It’s a bit of work but after making the dough and letting it sit, as directed, I separate into three parts and spread with a wet spatula and/or wet hands to spread it out into the pans. Try to do this as evenly as possible, otherwise when you bake it it will have some places that get more baked than others. This makes a thinner crust that cooks better. If you don’t mind the crust being kind of thick and not crispy then you can make one or two crusts, but my family and I prefer this method. Also, I bake it 10-15 minutes before adding sauce and toppings.
Biscuit Topped Beef Pot Pie
Chicken Rice Bake
Pasta Carbanara – I will use Tinkyada GF Brown Rice Pasta
Veggie – maybe zucchini
PF Chang like Lettuce Wraps
Beef (Venison) Roast (Hopefully in the crockpot)
Chicken Enchilada Bake
I will try to get some of the recipes up on the blog soon.
