by

I haven’t been the best at posting but I have been keeping up on the menu planning.  Which, as I’ve mentioned in the past, is crucial to my survival! I made some granola yesterday, which is so very yummy. It is especially delicious with yogurt (Stonyfield Farm is gluten free). I also made Taco Seasoning and I’m hoping to make Enchilada Sauce and Pizza Sauce this week.

The square foot garden we started and the strawberries are doing very well.  I will post an update on the garden soon.

Menu:

Monday: 
Tacos

Tuesday:
Pasta – I think I might try it in the crockpot, we’ll see.

Wednesday:
Pizza
Salad

Thursday:
Cheeseburgers
Fries
Corn on cob

Friday:
Bean and Cheese Enchilada Bake

Saturday:
Teriyaki Chicken
Rice
Veggies

Sunday:
Sante Fe Chicken

Menu Plan Monday – March 14th, 2011

by

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.

Teriyaki Beef
Rice
Carrots

Chicken Enchilada casserole

Fajita Beef  with something

Apple Chicken Sausages
Roasted Potatoes
Veggie

Chicken Soup

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.

Monday:
Cheeseburgers with Kinnikinnick Hamburger Buns
Nathan’s Hot Dogs (No buns, I haven’t found a bun that I think is worth the cost)
Oven Baked French Fries and Sweet Potato Fries
Salad

Tuesday:
Coconut Curry Chicken
Coconut Rice
Carrots

Wednesday:
Meatloaf
Baked Potatoes
Veggie

Thursday:
Chicken with Apple Cider Sauce
Apple Cider Green Beans
Roasted Potatoes

Friday:
Teriyaki Beef
Rice
Veggies

Saturday:

Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Tortilla chips

Sunday:
Chicken Soup

Menu Plan Monday – February 28th, 2011

Monday
Pizza
Salad


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.

Tuesday
Biscuit Topped Beef Pot Pie

Wednesday
Chicken Rice Bake

Thursday
Pasta Carbanara – I will use Tinkyada GF Brown Rice Pasta
Veggie – maybe zucchini
Garlic Biscuits

Friday
PF Chang like Lettuce Wraps

Saturday
Beef (Venison) Roast (Hopefully in the crockpot)
Potatoes
Carrots

Sunday
Chicken Enchilada Bake

I will try to get some of the recipes up on the blog soon.
