Gluten-Free Menu & a Monthly Menu Plan

This week I have something new for you, and I hope you will like it!  I have created a dinner menu plan for the month of September.

It is a three page PDF document.  Page one has general information along with alternate recipes, side dish, and dessert suggestions.  Page two contains the monthly dinner main dish menu with links to the recipes.  Page three is the same as page two without the links for printing.

All you have to do to get a copy of this menu is subscribe to The Gluten-Free Homemaker either by RSS or email (it’s free).  If you are already subscribed, then you’re good to go.  Next, go to the bottom of the RSS post or email, just below the ad, and look for the small link that says, “September 2012 Menu.” Clicking that link should direct you to the PDF.

I think it’s working properly, but bear with me if it doesn’t.  If it does work, let me know what you think!

The monthly menu is not necessarily a menu I will be following, especially since I have made changes to my diet.  In fact, I created the monthly menu because I felt that my options have been very limited lately, and I wanted to share more possibilities with you.

Gluten Free Menu 9-2-12

Here is what we had last week.

chicken and vegetables

Crock Pot Chicken and Vegetables with Rice – This is an easy but filling meal.  I skipped the rice.

Green Bean Scramble – I actually didn’t have green beans so I used broccoli and zucchini.  It’s an easy and versatile recipe that is low carb, and the kids like it.

chicken cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore, Rice – I didn’t thicken the sauce this time because I didn’t want any corn starch with it.  I removed the chicken pieces and we at the veggies and broth like a soup.

Baked Salmon and Asparagus – I baked the foil wrapped salmon on the grill and steamed the asparagus.

macaroni and cheese

Macaroni and Cheese, and Broccoli – My kids love that macaroni and cheese so I made it for them and my husband. Gluten-free son and I just had chicken and broccoli.

Friday and Saturday we had dinner with my parents and since I’m writing this post in advance, I can’t tell you what we had.  :)

This menu plan is linked to Menu Plan Monday where you will lots of links to menu plans.  They are not necessarily gluten-free, but can still give you ideas.

    I just want to say thank-you, thank-you for your September menu plan. I have been gluten free for about 7 months now, and done well, except for this one area, planning dinner. So often it is 4:00 and I start to think about dinner, and realize I am in big trouble. Everything has to be made from scratch, very different than I was used to. This is an invaluable resourse for me. I feel organized and excited about dinner this month. I love your recipes, they are delicious and simple and use ingredients I usually have. And now to have my month scheduled with links to the recipes! Thank-you!

      Donna, are you looking in the email or RSS feed? This link is not on my site. It should be right below the box ad at the bottom of every post.
