This Week's Menu - Homemade Gluten Free Lasagna or Ravioli

"Pantry meal" weeks are common at our house. I like pantry weeks not only because it's a frugal option for us, but it can just make the weekend less stressful because I don't have to go grocery shopping. Generally, my favorite type of shopping is for groceries... but sometimes I just don't feel up to it!

So, as with most pantry weeks, our meals will be very simple. What are you making this week?


Breakfasts: EcoPlanet Gluten Free Oatmeal + 1 oz. almonds, hemp shakes, boiled eggs, yogurt, homemade gluten free granola + almond milk

Snacks: leftover teff muffins, babybell and/or cheesesticks, yogurt, almonds, mary’s sticks & twigs w/ hummus, apple slices w/ almond butter

Lunch - Leftovers and/or spinach & romaine salad

Pantry/Freezer dinners this week:
  • Monday - One-pot meal made with cannellini beans, petit-diced tomatoes, fresh spinach & gluten free pasta (although I may leave the pasta out of my portion) -- look for the recipe later this week!
  • Tuesday - Grilled Chicken Breasts w/broccoli
  • Wednesday - Crockpot Beef Stew w/ carrots, celery, garlic, onions, few potatoes
  • Thursday - Angel Food Gluten Free Country Steak w/ green beans & cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes
  • Friday - (Easy!) Breakfast for dinner: gluten free pancakes and scrambled eggs
  • Saturday - Homemade Gluten Free Lasagna -OR- Ravioli (using this recipe for gluten free pasta) served w/ sauteed zucchini and mushrooms
  • Sunday - Easter -- Dinner with Michael’s family (I may make some sort of casserole and/or several side dishes so I have plenty of gluten free options.)

  • Make large romaine salad
  • Make homemade gf granola
  • Grill chicken breasts for Tuesday
  • Cube & cook sweet potatoes for Thursday

  1. I'd eat at your house. It all looks good to me. I just got a bag of Teff from the friendly folks at Bob's Red Mill and I'm looking for ideas.

  2. Carrie,
    mmmm....looks like a tasty week! Monday sounds the yummiest to me, for whatever reasons cannelli beans are my favorite and I can't wait until summer so I can have them with tomatoes and basil. Yum!
