This Week's Gluten-Free Menu: Back to a Plan

Okay, admittedly it has been MONTHS... really MONTHS since I stuck a menu plan. It's so easy to get out of the habit... and then it kills our grocery budget when we do!

So it's time to get back in the habit. The meals we have cooked over the past few weeks have been mostly pantry meals. I'm trying to clean out my freezer and our cabinets and rotate out foods that are getting close to date!

I'm going to continue that this week, although I probably will stop by the grocery store to pick up a few things like eggs and milk (almond for me, organic dairy for hubs). Our meals will also be very quick and easy, as life has been pretty hectic lately and I just haven't had time to create or make meals with tons of ingredients or that take a long time.

And as you probably know, this week has a couple of special days in it: Shrove Tuesday and Saint Valentine's Day. So I think we'll have gluten-free pancakes on Tuesday night and for Valentine's Day, M & I will just have a small meal at home followed by a glass of this chocolate wine! I saw it at the grocery store yesterday and had to pick it up! How perfect for Valentine's Day!

This Week's Gluten-Free Menu: 

Pin It!


  1. Yay for meal planning! I love to plan ahead, it makes things a lot less stressful during the week, and I don't have to go to the store as often.

    If you have an Apple device I highly recommend the Menu Planner app, it makes it very easy to map out meals, plus has extra features like recipe importing and shopping lists.

  2. I've been eyeing your Tortilla Soup on page 125 and am thinking I'll make it for my hubby on Thursday. He flies home very late and a bowl of spicy soup will be just right with a little something chocolate to finish.

    Thanks again for your cookbook!

  3. WOOT! I love meal planning. I don't know what I ever did before I finally started doing it. :D
