Gluten-Free Mini-Meat Loaf with Mushroom Sauce

Here’s an old favorite that’s already easy to make, made a little faster. The smaller individual-size loaves cook faster.

Because they’re smaller, they’re also quick to freeze. They thaw quickly for a meal later, so I often double the recipe and make extra.

When I was converting this recipe to be gluten-free, I discovered several different possibilities…

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of August 18, 2013

There are many different approaches to eating… Low-carb, paleo, Atkins, whole foods, real foods, raw and many, many more. And of course a Gluten-Free Diet.

One of the nice things about a many of these different approaches to eating is that they are often interchangeable with each other. I personally like to intermix Paleo and Low-Carb with my “foundational” Guten-Free approach to eating.

For instance, in this week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu I have three paleo and several low-carb dinners planned…

I made the potatoes shown in the picture in the slow cooker as cubed potatoes with olive oil & parsley for seasoning.
 
Quartered or cubed potatoes with your favorite seasonings would work just as well. I served these recently for dinner with what I call a mini-meat loaf.

This week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is in “Lock Step” with last week.

Summer is a time for celebrations and special family togetherness…

… It’s warm, humid and maybe even punctuated by a quick afternoon thunder shower or two.

Special meals and picnics, sparklers and fireworks, vacations and trips to the mountains, beaches and grandma’s house are perfect for bringing out the best summertime has to offer. And, one way you can add to the celebration is by using colors to enhance your meals to make them exciting and enjoyable!
