GF Menu Swap, August 25 – 29

Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday

Tomorrow is the first dread day of meetings for teachers in my district.  And by dreaded, I’m not joking.  I may even be making an understatement.

Tomorrow at 7:45AM, 1,200 teachers will gather in our high school auditorium and watch several PowerPoint presentations. And every word on each slide will be read aloud to us… for the next FOUR HOURS.  OMG. OMG. OMG.

Shoot me now.

Okay – don’t shoot me.  Just have pity on me.

I am getting anxious for all that I have to get done in the next few weeks and my mind is not really wrapped around all of it.  That’s a problem.  However, after 4 hours suffocating in an auditorium (the fans/air circulation is ALWAYS turned off!), I will be shocked back into my working reality and hopefully the ideas will come flowing.

I’m set for lunch ideas. (See these posts if you want some ideas about packing lunches or what to put in your gluten free bag lunch).  Now I just need to get motivated to get back to work!  I’ve been enjoying my summer vacation and have become a whole, balanced human being.  Something rarely seen in the hallways of a high school (especially in June).

To finish up my summer, my sister and her boys have spent the weekend with us.  They showed up on Friday to deliver a crib and have spent every minute and night here since.  Fun, huh?  (To really comprehend this, you must know that she lives 3 miles from me.  LOL)  The Wii has gotten a workout this weekend!

All of this joy and happy kid sounds in the house make me excited to have our own child arrive soon!  I can’t wait… but we have to.  :)

Here’s the menu plan for the week:

Monday:  Leftover madness (Chicken tenders, ginger-spiced squash and onigiri)

Tuesday: Steamed fish and veggies

Wednesday:  Salmon Chowder

Thursday: Taco Salad

Friday:  Pozole

Thank you, Fresh Ginger for hosting the GF Menu Swap this week!  And I’m also submitting this to OrgJunkie.com for the Meal Plan Monday there.  It’s great to get ideas…. my brain is leaky with the return on school and 18+ hour days.  I can use all the help I can get!

Happy Monday, All.
