    Weekly Menu Plan – November 15, 2010

    ACK! Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is 38 days away. I have a friend on Facebook who is ever so kind as to remind me (and the rest of her friends) how many more days until Christmas. While hearing it does freak me out, it does tend to keep me on my toes. Thanks, Nicole! ;) Have you started Christmas or holiday shopping yet? I purchased one gift back in September and then a few more last week. Black Friday is the big day. I can’t wait to head out and find some deals. I hope to complete my shopping, or come darn close that day.

    I was in a hurry on Friday night to grab dinner with Hannah and then head to Jon’s first pre-season game. I stopped into Champp’s to eat only to discover their gluten-free options have been seriously pared down. I was not going to sacrifice a mini-girly night out by eating bland food when so many other places cater to those on the gluten-free diet. We were just getting up to leave as the server approached our table and I explained my dilemma. He said that he would pass the comment on to his manager. I am not sure if he did or not, but I would like to think that he did. I am going to follow up with an email to corporate. There were so many options for us that night, but we were in a hurry by this time, so we chose Red Robin, as they didn’t have a wait. I hadn’t eaten at Red Robin for a long time, so I was excited to get my hands on those steak fries. I don’t often eat fries out at restaurants. Not only do I worry about cross-contamination, but I prefer to eat the healthier version of fries that I make at home. Well, every girl deserves a treat once in a while, right? Oh yeah, and a treat these were! These fries were the absolute most perfect fries in the world! I did pair them with a salad and turkey protein burger, so I didn’t feel too guilty. ;) It was nice to splurge with my mini-me for a night.

    Dinner last night, Sunday, was on the fly. Jon was getting home late from a pre-season hockey game (they lost both games this weekend) and I had spent the day cleaning. Aaron & Hannah opted for non-gluten-free pizza, so I opted for an iron-rich bison burger, sweet potato steak fries, carrots & salad. I hope to have some more organization through the rest of the week.

    Monday – Grilled Chicken Breast, brown rice, broccoli & salad

    Tuesday – Taco Tuesday – this day has become a must have for Jon. He loves tacos and begs for them weekly

    Wednesday – Teriyaki Steelhead Trout, baked potatoes, asparagus and salad

    Thursday -Spaghetti with roasted veggies and salad

    Friday – Take out after hockey

    Saturday – Pizza or Breakfast for dinner

    Baked Goods
