Gluten-Free Pan-Grilled Salmon Fillets

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 20, 2014

This week the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan begins with a dinner fit for a celebration, at least in our house… we all like it that much.

Tender, juicy salmon fillets with spinach on the side is one of my family’s favorite dinners. And, to make it even better, it includes a Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert, which is always good for a party. The cake takes advanced preparation and then it needs time to cool. But, the rest of the dinner takes only 30 minutes to cook.

Chicken Sandwich with Tomato and Mayo

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 6, 2014

The last few weeks have been so hectic that I’ve missed preparing my menu plans, and that’s really made things even more hectic. This week is off to a better start already since I’ve put together a gluten-free diet menu plan to help me out.

I hope those of you in the U.S. are enjoying your Independence Day weekend! Mine has been sunny and not too hot, with lots of flags and fireworks. Our neighbors like a lot of the noisy kind of fireworks. They are fun to watch, but I can’t say that our three dogs appreciate the noise.

Here are my ideas for a week’s worth of family-pleasing gluten-free dinners. I hope you have a wonderful week!

My Summer Relish Tray

You’ll Relish This Summer Relish Tray Made With Ernie’s Salsas

The first thing I noticed about Ernie’s Salsas, besides being gluten-free, was the high quality of the ingredients used, the short list of ingredients and the variety of flavors.

Ernie sent me five flavors to taste: Gourmet Red, Hawaiian Pineapple Heat, Chesapeake Bay Shrimp, Perfect Peach, and Black Bean and Corn….

We tasted some of each flavor plain, and then also with cucumber slices, pepper strips, celery and carrot sticks, and also with some chips.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of June 8, 2014, Featuring Low-Carb Plate Specials

This week the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan focuses on low carb dishes. These meals are simple to make :-) … And, even without a lot of starchy side dishes, it’s filling and probably a lot healthier.

Personally, I feel better when I eat low carb meals like these. I’ve always been a fan of the Atkins and similar diets.

And, these are dishes that the rest of my family likes, too…

Gluten-Free Stuffed Peppers

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of May 18, 2014

I’ve discovered an absolutely delicious sandwich bread recipe. It’s called “Sandwich Bread with Sourdough Starter.” I’m using it in the sandwich supper I’ve included in the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan this week. You can find the link in the menu plan.

Several weeks ago I started my own batch of sourdough starter by following Amy Green’s directions and I found it has worked just as her instructions say… It really is simple to make!

Gluten-Free Barbecue Shredded Chicken in the Slow Cooker

Barbecue Shredded Chicken in the Slow Cooker

I really like to come home to the aroma and taste of Gluten-Free, Barbecue Shredded Chicken!

This tangy, filling dinner is just what I need after a long day at work, shopping at the mall or an afternoon of gardening in my backyard.

While “30 minute meals” are really helpful, a meal like this, that only requires me to spend about 10 minutes putting ingredients in the slow cooker is even better. Slow cooker meals are, to my mind, the ultimate in “set and forget” cooking activities!

I just load the ingredients into my crockpot and …
