Welcome to another week’s Gluten-Free Menu Plan!
This week I’m featuring a mid-winter variety of soups, roasted vegetables and baked quick breads to go with our hot meals.
Grab a cup of coffee and join me for a little menu planning. It always makes the week go more easily…
… For that and many other reasons, people who are gluten intolerant often don’t realize how serious their condition really is…
… They think that because they only get a slight headache or have mild digestive upsets or have some other minor reaction after they eat or drink something with gluten in it that their disease isn’t all that serious.
But, almost nothing could be further from the truth!
Find out WHY!
Gluten-free pumpkin muffins are a good way to start off the day. Pumpkin muffins are a type of gluten-free bread and go great with many, many foods… especially breakfast “fixin’s.”
And, even better, this recipe is easy to make. They can be ready in about 30 minutes and will reward you and your family with their delicate aroma and delicious pumpkin-y flavor.
Unfortunately, they won’t last very long. So, be sure to make plenty… I turned my husband loose on the muffins you see in the picture above and they all vanished in about 15 minutes… And, he’s not a magician!
He says that they are fabulous with a pat of rich, creamery butter melted into each bite.
For this wintry week in January our gluten-free menu plan has plenty of dishes to feed you and your family and keep everyone warm and satisfied. There are pot roast, stir fry, bean soup, sandwiches, skillet-braised pork, roasted chicken breasts, stuffed peppers, and more.
To start the year off, here is a gluten-free menu plan for the week, complete with main dishes, sides and even a couple of sweets for lunches, desserts and snacking.
While this is a complete, family-style menu, many of these recipes have options for healthier low carb eating. Sometimes these are sauces and gravies that are not thickened. To do that, I will remove my portion of a dish before thickening a sauce, and I’ll just keep it warm while I finish preparing the regular thickened sauce or gravy that the family is expecting.
As the year comes to a close I am thankful for each of you who have visited Elegantly, Gluten-Free in 2014. I’m so glad to have been able to share with you my gluten-free recipes and more about eating and living gluten-free and how to enjoy it, whatever your situation may be.
Today’s post is a menu plan of sorts except it’s YOUR 12 favorite gluten-free dinner recipes in 2014… You voted by going to the recipe on Elegantly, Gluten-Free dot com. Each visit counted as one vote.
In 2014, Al and I released the second edition of my third book and I am deeply appreciative of everyone who bought their own copy of my book… It was quite humbling as well as encouraging to be so well received So, as a somewhat late Christmas Present…
Rocky Road Candy is one of my favorite sweets. Since it uses only a few ingredients and doesn’t take a lot of kitchen equipment, it’s also easy to make gluten-free rocky road candy without a lot of extra trouble.
Different kinds of chocolate may be used, like chocolate chips – semisweet or milk chocolate flavor — or Hershey’s milk chocolate bars or even a lower-sugar cacao bar, if you like. Just be sure that the chocolate is gluten-free. (You can check my pantry list for some gluten-free brands.) For this easy gluten-free recipe post I used Hershey’s milk chocolate chips.
