    Weekly Meal Plan–September 4, 2011

    Okay, so this is a couple of days late.  I get a pass because I it was a holiday weekend and I ran a half marathon on Sunday, right?  Has the weather gotten cool where you live?  I was able to turn off our A/C yesterday and let all of the ragweed in (achoo!).  I think I have a couple more days in me before I close the house back to block out the allergens. 


    The cool weather has me wanting to bake – pumpkin bread, banana bread, applesauce cake!  What is your favorite fall baked goodie?

    Sunday – Rotisserie chicken, fried potatoes, broccoli and salad

    Monday – Bonefish Grill (Hannah and I had a great day out shopping & then dinner)

    Tuesday – Homemade Chipotle burrito bowls (instructions below)

    Wednesday – Spaghetti with marinutta sauce and salad

    Thursday – Bison burgers, sweet potato puffs, green beans & salad

    Friday – Udi’s gluten-free pizza crust with tomato & mushroom (recipe to come soon) and salad

    Saturday – Bourbon Chicken, brown rice, broccoli & salad

    This week I will be sharing my thoughts on Stephanie O’Dea’s Totally Together Journal and giving away a copy, so make sure to check back in!  To see if you won my last giveaway, Rudi’s gluten-free bread & sandwich box, click here

    To make the Chipotle-like burrito bowl (Aaron created this for Jon since the kid has a serious addiction.  I may or may not share the same addiction):

    • Brown rice cooked with lime juice & sea salt and then tosses with fresh chopped cilantro
    • Flank steak sliced & cooked with cumin, chili pepper, sea salt & pepper and then tossed with Aaron’s version of hot sauce (includes Sriracha and Red Hot – I don’t have exact measurements b/c he doesn’t measure anything)
    • Chopped iceburg lettuce
    • Sour cream
    • Cheddar cheese

    Layer all of the above in a bowl & then drizzle with Ortega Mild Taco Sauce.
