Meal Plan 1/18--1/24 Family Favorites w/ a GF tweak!

Run ons & all by: Alisha at 11:30 PM

I am a mid week planner.

It works better for our pay cycle and because we live in a tourist city, the grocery store is always insanely crazy on the weekends, full of landlocked visitors trying to stock up for their day at the beach....Needless to say NOT fun to grocery shop in, as if grocery shopping could ever be classified as fun.

This will be my first completely Gluten Free meal plan.  I am extremely intimidated and and really wish I had a 'been there done that' veteran to hold my hand through this experience.  My friends and family have been supportive, but they don't truly understand what I am talking about when I say "OMG, I have to buy a $30 bag of almond flour."  My husband is staying out of my hair and folding laundry.  Yes, I married the best man in the world, but just once, I would like for him to read the label and tell Avery 'Yes' or 'No' on a food request.

On with the plan...the plan is easy...it is the execution that is hard...


Wednesday - Brinner-- Spinach & Sausage Crust-less Quiche

Thursday - Carne Asada Tacos (Shredded Beef)

Friday - Meat Loaf w/ Smashed Taters and Salad Salad

Thank You for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope to see you again. Leave me a comment and I will be sure to visit your blog as well!!


  1. I tend to switch my planned days around a fair bit every single week as I roll with the punches =) Even when I don't follow it completely, having that plan in place is critical.

  2. Welcome to Gluten-Free living! Your menu looks great to me. The learning curve is always the hardest. I love the quote on your header - made me smile and nod my head in agreement. I thought I knew how to cook and bake, but then realized that I really just took short cuts.

  3. Thursdays are our Scout Days. My Husband is the Den Leader for my son's Cub Scouts and I attend all of my daughter's Girl Scouts, so we will definitely need easy-peasy stuff that day...use to just grab burgers or pizza. Oh, how I took that for granted...

  4. LOL!!! @Heather...I thought cooking rice meant cutting the corner off the Uncle Ben's Micro Pouch...I am (was)the ultimate slacker/shortcut mom!! This morning my daughter freaked out and was crying about never having apple pie again (she has randomly done this all week) I said " you can have it again, I just really need to learn to bake it." She looked at me all funny and said...."Mom, you've only ever bought pies." I am thinking her faith in my baking abilities are not that high...


Thank You very much for taking the time to leave me a comment. Hope that you have a wonderful day :)



About my Recipes

We are a gluten free family. All of our main meals are Gluten Free. When posting a recipe, I do not think it is necessary for me to write out Gluten Free for each ingredient. It should be assumed.

I double check ALL labels and packaging before I purchase anything. If you are going to safely provide a GF environment for yourself or your family, double even triple checking each product must become a standard for you as well.

Also, when I am cooking a meal that I have 'created' or cook often, I do not measure. If you have any questions about exact amounts, please leave a comment and I will try my best to answer.

If I am posting a recipe that has gluten in it I will then explain that...I do still purchase a few gluten items for my son and husband's lunches and snacks. However, gluten recipes will be very very rare.

I love Visitors
