Well, we survived another 4th of July weekend. We had a birthday party, fireworks and the usual visitors to the area that we live in. It’s hot and likely to stay so for another few days, so I’ve come up with a menu plan that is oriented towards one thing (besides being delicious and fun)…it’s easy.
There are three 30 minute meals, a slow cooker and an assortment of several fairly easy traditional dishes. I don’t like cooking when it’s so hot out and I expect that many of you feel the same way I do.
Two meals of note: Day 1 has a Paleo meal of Braised Pork Loin Chops in a somewhat traditional format. Day 4 also features a healthy Paleo 30 minute meal. I hope your family enjoys this week’s menu plan as much we do.
Here it is.

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 suitable for the paleo diet or may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free or refined sugar-free.
