Menu Plan 2-19-12

I shared some time ago about about why I don’t menu plan (usually).  But I think menu planning can be very helpful at times, and I have also shared menu planning tips.

Since I don’ t menu plan most of the time, I can’t share my menu plans with you each week, but I can share what we had the past week.  That’s why I called this Menu Plan Ideas.  It’s not my actual plan—it’s what I did.  And it might give you ideas.

Remember, you can also check my Facebook page on weeknights to see what I had for dinner.

This past week was a little different than usual.  My husband was out of town most of the week, and for various reasons, I needed quick and easy dinners several days.  I mostly served salad or veggies and dip with these meals.

Beans and Wieners with Cornbread (Busch’s baked beans, Hebrew National hot dogs)

chicken cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore – I made a large pot of this so there was enough to take to a friend who had surgery.  Since her son is on the specific carbohydrate diet, I made it as more of a soup.  I used SCD safe chicken broth and I did not thicken it with corn starch like I usually do.

Tacos – I bought mini chicken tacos made with corn tortillas from BJs.  They are gluten free but had cheese in them, so I ate leftovers.

Pizza – Udi’s pizza crust for the gluten-free eaters (I used goat cheese).  A frozen regular pizza for the others.

    Can you share how you made the chicken cacciatore since I am going to start the SCD soon!

      Sunnie, I followed the chicken cacciatore recipe as is except I used Imagine foods chicken broth and did not thicken it with corn starch after it was done. I also omitted the cooking wine because I didn’t know if that was SCD legal or not. I think I added a little extra broth. When it was done cooking, I removed the chicken and shredded it, then added it back in. You can adjust the amounts so you have enough liquid for the amount of chicken.

If you have a question about a recipe (especially substitutions and nutritional information), please read my FAQ page before asking the question in a comment.
