The time has come…..school starts this week!! WOOHOO!!! Not all of us in the house are doing the “Back-to-School Boogie”….Jon would prefer to keep right on going with his summer vacation. Sorry, Charlie! While I have enjoyed the summer with the kids, I am excited to get back into more of a routine. The school supplies have been purchased and the backpacks are packed. Now all we need is for Wednesday to get here!
This week Asparagus Thin is hosting the gluten-free menu swap. She chose grapes as her ingredient theme of the week. I love grapes! My new favorite grape is the champagne grape, which I have been using on my salads! YUM!! I talk about them here. I plan on continuing to use them in my salads this week. I also have some seedless red grapes that I am probably going to freeze for fun snacks this week.
I have some news that really disappointed me today. I had written a while back that I was so excited that Meijer’s Rotisserie Chicken was gluten-free…the original only had 4 0r 5 ingredients on the list, all clearly gluten-free. Well, today I went to buy our Sunday night chicken and went to check the ingredients like I always do and what do you know, they changed them!! Now there was a huge list for the “spices” and wheat flour was the 3rd one on the list!! WHY???? What was wrong with the way it was?? If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it!! I was trying to find a manager on duty, but decided it would be best to email after Aaron convinced me of it. So, that scrapped our dinner for tonight. I did buy a roasting chicken so I could make my own this week. Close in price, just more work for me. Oh well. I should be used to it by now. This just goes to show you why it is very important to check the labels on everything you buy & eat every single time.
Sunday ~ Chicken Parmesan a la Aaron. Spaghetti, green beans & salad on the side
Monday ~ Kim meeting friend at Whole Foods; leftovers for the family
Tuesday ~ Filet mignon, broccoli, sweet potatoes & salad
Wednesday ~ Tacos or Mexican Pizza, beans & salad
Friday ~ Breakfast for dinner (pancakes or omelets)
Saturday ~ Out
Haven’t gotten this far yet! HA!! I would love to make some more chia muffins or banana bread this week.
