The Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for this week begins with a fall-apart tender sandwich dinner of Beef Short Ribs in a tangy sauce. Sliced onions are optional.
Following that is a celebration of Cinco de Mayo featuring Carne Guisada, a spicy Mexican-inspired beef stew that can have onions, tomatoes and even potatoes in it. Like most stews, the ingredients can vary some. It’s been a favorite of mine since I first had some in San Antonio years ago.
Tender chunks of meat, spices and flavorful vegetables braised together make a fragrant Mexican version of beef stew called Carne Guisada.
The flavors of Carne Guisada are ideal for a simple family dinner. My husband likes it on the mild side, and I kick it up with extra Pico de Gallo or Salsa on mine.
I’m so happy to see daffodils and tulip trees blooming! It’s also fun to add a few spring veggies to this week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan.
Asparagus, sugar snap peas, spring salad greens and green peas are a few sides that I like to add to the menu any time of year. But, they are even better when I can find them fresh, so I’ve added them to several of the meals below.
There’s a slow cooker meal, a sandwich supper, a paleo chicken dinner, a salad supper, a shrimp sauté, a “breakfast for supper” and a crock pot turkey breast supper this week.
I love Brownies!
Especially, Fudge Brownies with Almonds… They are good for serving at a party, packing in a lunchbox or eating for a gluten-free after-school snack…or just any time a rich chocolate treat is in order.
They are dense and moist with chunks of almonds that add just the right amount of crunch.
This week’s Gluten Free Diet Menu Plan begins with a marvelous Easter holiday dinner of oven roasted boneless pork loin and ends with an easy lasagna with spinach.
