Weekly Menu (5/20/12-5/26/12)

This week in our Bountiful Basket we got:

  • green bell peppers 
  • tomatoes
  • cauliflower 
  • carrots
  • cucumber
  • corn on the cob 
  • honeydew
  • apricots
  • red pears
  • blackberries
  • bananas
I also have spinach, potatoes, baby carrots and lettuce left from last week.

This week for breakfast: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, Waffles (we still have a few in the freezer) and Cereal for the kids, and Homemade Yogurt with sliced fruit (bananas, blackberries, or apricots) or Overnight Oats for me.

This week for school lunch:  
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
  • Fruit (bananas probably)
  • Chips
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Milk
This week for dinner: 
  • Hamburgers (we were supposed to have this last Friday and I got glutened that day at a restaurant, and was pretty sick, so my family ate sandwiches while I laid in, we are having the burgers tonight)
  • Topped with Tomatoes, Lettuce, and Spinach
  • We are also going to try out the new Daiya Cheese Jack Style Wedge on the burgers
  • Roasted Red potatoes and Cauliflower
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Chili 
  • Baked Potatoes 
  • Carrot sticks and Almond Butter
  • Honeydew
  • Tamales and Taquitos
  • Black beans and rice
  • Nachos
  • Salad

  • Teriyaki Chicken (using Coconut Aminos)
  • Fresh Veggie Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce (I'm using cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and rice vermicilli noodles in the rice wrappers)
  • Basmati Rice

Thursday: (It's our 10th wedding annivesary!  We'll be celebrating over the weekend)
  • One-eyed sandwiches
  • Bacon
  • Sliced Pears and Apricots
The Weekend:  (The hubby and I are going down to Salt Lake for the weekend, our boys are spending the weekend with Grandma)

For the hubs and I, here are a few of the places we are thinking of going to:
  • The Red Iguana (they have a gluten-free menu if you ask for it, and will help you navigate through it)
  • Five Guys (this is my husband's favorite burger joint, and the simple menu makes it easy for me to eat there, the fries are gluten-free, and I will either bring my own bun or have my burger protein style)
  • Applebees (we have a gift card there)
  • I also plan on having plenty of snacks, and hitting up grocery stores while we are there.
For the kids, I'm sure grandma will spoil them with their favorites: peanut butter sandwiches, nachos, hot dogs, etc. and I think she's also planning on taking them out to Red Robin and/or Chick-fil-a.

  1. Happy anniversary!! Hope your weekend was awesome
    My daughter had the DNA testing in '09 & found she & her two girls have double genes for intolerance (she has DH, so some would say DH celiac!) & her husband one for intol, one for celiac! I followed their lead in going GF, & last fall dairy free. It is quite a ride, & as you say, we're all feeling better!
    I enjoy finding new recipes & ideas for this GF & etc journey - look forward to perusing your blog!!
