Menu Plan Monday: Week of August 30, 2010

We ended up with company over the weekend and never got to the plans for those days.  I sat the children down and asked THEM what they wanted for lunch this week.  The suggestions I got were as follows:

  • Pizza (son only)
  • Breaded Chicken Patty Sandwich
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Home Made Luncheables
  • Salad (daughter only)
  • Corn Chips and Cheese Dip

We found a new sausage at Sam's Club.  It's called Mozzarella & Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage.  It says Gluten free right on the front of the package, which I love, and looks wonderful.  I will serve it on a bed of Caramelized Peppers and onions and home made Rice a Roni on the side.  Pineapple Upside Down Cake for dessert.

Sirloin Tri-Tip Beef Roast marinaded in a peppercorn and red wine seasoning. Peanut butter Pie for dessert.  I'm going to have to use cookie crumb pie crust though.

Spaghetti and Meatballs served with a loaf of fresh baked bread and a Caesar salad.  I even bought the anchovies to make the paste to put into the dressing.

Taco Night.  Taco night is our favorite dinner and its quick and easy.  We will be busy at Cubs all evening for back to school night.

Pizza Night.  So far we have tried a Tapioca Starch Pizza crust, Pamela's Pizza crust and Bob's Red Mill GF pizza crust.  I think I like Pamela's the best. The tapioca and BRM both stayed chewy.  I liked the slight crunch that Pamela's baked to.   I don't think the boys like any of them but I guess gluten free is a taste you just have to get used to.  Maybe Pamela's was cooked longer that made it seem more crunchy?  I'm not sure which type we will try this time.

Vegetarian Asian style Fried Rice.  I would love to try my own pot Stickers using an idea I learned here.

I do want to get around to making the ground Turkey Meatloaf with Brown Sugar.  I have an excellent recipe that I want to blog about.

Need more ideas:
