It was a busy week with my niece’s wedding yesterday. It was not a normal dinner week at all. Many of these meals were rushed and I think there was only one day where everyone was home for dinner. We ate a lot of salad for veggies because it was easy.
On top of that, I’ve still not been feeling well but I think I got some answers and help from the two doctors appointments I had. So here are some pretty easy gluten-free menu ideas for you.
Tortilla Soup and Salad – I used Pacific Foods soup starter for the soup. It was tasty and made an easy meal. Those who wanted carbs had tortilla chips with it.
Baked Salmon, Mashed Potatoes, Salad – My husband hasn’t had mashed potatoes with regular milk and butter in a long time, so I made some for him for this meal. Gluten-free son and I aren’t eating potatoes these days anyway so the dairy didn’t matter.
Crock Pot Chicken and Vegetables, Potatoes, Spinach Salad – Honestly, I didn’t have time to add the vegetables so I just threw a whole chicken in the crock pot with some water. I cooked it on high and it was done in a few hours. Some of the family had leftover mashed potatoes.
Leftover Chicken, Rice, Broccoli – Not everyone was home for dinner, so there was enough chicken for another dinner.
Spaghetti – We were running out the door on this evening so all we had was pasta sauce with ground beef on spaghetti squash.
London Broil – This was something I cooked mid-week and ate for lunch or dinner with salad when I needed a quick meal.
I also made a pumpkin baked oatmeal this week. I used pumpkin in place of apple butter/applesauce, stevia in place of the sugar and two tablespoons honey in place of the agave.
