Meal Plan Monday - Mar 12, 2012

Pin It I'm so happy that we've changed the clocks to daylight savings time!  I love the longer afternoon sunshine.  I've even got plans to take the kids, along with some friends, for an afternoon at the playground later this week.  Provided that my 9 yr old gets over this bug that's got her down.  Anyway, let's see what we'll be eating this week.

MONDAY - Quinoa Indian Chicken - I've been looking for ways to add more flavor to my dinners, so I'm excited to try Heather's recipe found over at Celiac Family.

TUESDAY - Swiss Steak in the Crockpot with gluten-free noodles - This will also be a new one for me.  I found it over at the  It's a Paula Deen recipe so its bound to be good.  I'll serve it with Schar Gluten-Free Pasta.

WEDNESDAY - Cream of Potato Soup {gluten, dairy and egg-free} - All too soon the season for soups will be over, so I'd like to enjoy this while we can.  

THURSDAY - I'm hoping for leftovers from Tuesday and Wednesday. 
FRIDAY - Corned Beef and Roast Potatoes - I realize that
St. Patrick's Day is on Saturday, not Friday, but it just doesn't work for us to make this meal on Saturday, so we'll have it a day early.  It'll be okay since we aren't Irish anyway.

SATURDAY - Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Peas and Cranberry Sauce - See, we can't have corned beef on Saturday 'cause we've got a turkey to cook, and Saturday's are just good days for cooking turkeys.  Okay, its really because my husband, not me, is the one who prepares turkeys around our house.

SUNDAY - Dido Saturday!  That's the joyful thing about turkey.

  1. Let me know what you think of the Indian Chicken. Last week I made it with pineapple instead of peaches and it was just as good.

    I'm anxious to try your Cream of Potato Soup - looks yummy!

    1. Heather - I loved it! Even without the mango chutney (which I didn't have) it was full of flavor. All three kids plus hubby enjoyed it too! I facebooked about it.

  2. Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day!
