It’s not every week that I start off with hors d’oeuvres. But I did this week. Al and I just love the taste of the hummus and this particular brand of crackers. We are getting nothing for the mention but we really do like them.
And, it’s a great warm up for the Easy Meatballs, Redskin ‘skins, Salad and Chocolate Chip Almond Bar dessert that complete the eatin’s fer the day!
The week continues with Braised Pork, Roasted Beets and Sweet Potato Wedges… Al (he sure is getting mentioned a lot this week) thought that they were gross when I roasted the beets myself in the oven. But, their sweet meaty taste and texture were worth it.
The Chicken Pot Pie is a traditional recipe but its buddy the Napa Cabbage Coleslaw with the Red Wine Vinaigrette is outstanding as both the colors and the flavors contrast. Believe it or not, the Napa Slaw is one of our all-time most popular recipes. Its stats are hanging in there… Right up with the “Gluten-Free Cabbage Rolls” and “Are Marshmallows Gluten Free?” posts.
Day 4 continues with a 30 minute, quick and easy meal of Cornflake Breaded, Pan-Fried Fish on, of all things, a G.F. submarine roll and a spring greens salad which includes Cucumber, Onion, Pepper & Tomato Salad Vinaigrette. The dessert is Honeydew Melon Balls which, in true nautical fashion, finishes off the meal by bombarding whatever’s left of the Fish and Submarine Roll sandwich in your stomach like little round cannon balls falling from the sky as melon green depth charges… The Green Lantern™ would be so proud.
Day 5… Gluten-Free Lasagna and Spinach with a Salad and Black Cherry Yogurt for dessert.
Then I have an easy, slow-cooked Crock Pot meal of Chicken Breasts for Two (or four, or more…you know how to multiply).
And, we finish off the week with Holiday Fiesta Quesadillas by Land O’Lakes and Ree Drummond (these have shrimp!), with a Salad and some Rice Pudding for dessert…

This gluten-free menu plan is designed for those with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or celiac (coeliac) disease, but I’ve found that people who have no food allergies like these gluten-free recipes, too. They are wheat-free, barley-free and rye-free. Many are also paleo, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free and refined sugar-free.
