Gluten Free Menu 8-12-12

My family has been in a sandwich mood this week.  I would prefer to make gluten-free hamburger buns for everyone to eat, but that didn’t happen.

Steak Sandwiches – I hadn’t bought these in a long time, but we used frozen 100% beef slices  similar to Steak Ums.  We added lots of lettuce and tomato and ate a few veggies on the side.  Gluten-free son and I used Udi’s bread and the others ate gluteny bread.

Taco Salad, Tortilla Chips –  I had taco meat in the freezer which was easy to thaw, heat, and throw on top of a large salad.  Those who wanted more carbs with their meal ate tortilla chips with it.

Chicken Tenders, Brown Rice, Broccoli – I hadn’t bought chicken tenders in a while, but I’ve been in need of quicker meal options.  I found a bag of frozen ones without a lot of added ingredients.  They do cook quickly (especially in my countertop convection oven), and since I cooked the brown rice in my pressure cooker, dinner only took about 1/2 an hour to prepare.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Salad – I used sauce from a jar because I do not have a garden this year.  Usually I’d make spaghetti sauce from scratch in the summer to use up tomatoes.

Crock Pot Roast with Potatoes, Carrots & Onions, and Green Beans AlmandineRoast and vegetables are easy to cook in the crock pot, and I like having most of dinner ready by 5:00. It’s not much more work to add toasted almonds to green beans, and it ensures that my picky eater will eat the beans.

Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwiches – Like I said, we were into sandwiches, but I ate mine as a salad since I am cutting out carbs in the evening.

In addition, I made coconut macaroons to take to my support group meeting.  I also made zucchini bread which I’ll be sharing at Lifetime Moms this week.  I made two loaves and used coconut palm sugar in one of them.  It worked pretty well.  I didn’t eat much of it though because of my weight loss efforts.

What on your menu this week?
