Gluten Free Menu Swap & Monday Meal Plan 8/18

Do you know what this is?

I’ll post the photo on Wordless Wednesday of the whole object.

I’m feeling a little less than inspired this week.  The fridge is bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables from our trip to the Farmer’s Market, so I’m prepared.  But honestly, we’ve just been making it up as we go a bit.  At least this is true on the weekends.

It was wickedly hot in our house on Saturday (87F – INSIDE!) which made for great outdoor cooking.  We certainly didn’t want to heat up the house with even a tea kettle.  And you know what?  I “baked” a lavash wrap on the grill…perfectly.  I used a pan that fit on the top rack of the grill and parchment paper and wa-lah, bread in under 10 minutes.  It was a perfect wrap for our wasabi chicken sandwiches.

I’m still struggling with the idea of planning a week of menus at once.  It really helps… but on Sunday or so when I sit down to figure it out?  Yea.  I suffer from brain-rot.  LOL

Thanks to Mary Frances of Gluten Free Cooking School for hosting the round up of GF Menu Swaps this week.  I’m also posting this to Menu Plan Monday on OrgJunkie too.  Seeing both sets of great menus keeps me thinking of new possibilities!  Check out the round ups, if you haven’t already, to feel a little inspiration yourself!

Monday: Grilled Pork Chops & Sweet Potatoes

Tuesday: Korean BBQ Short Ribs

Wednesday: Shrimp Tacos

Thursday: Dinner out (sushi?)

Friday: Homemade (and healthier!) Chicken Gyros with pita bread and Tzatziki

Happy Monday All!

I’m working on a couple posts about Gluten Free Lunches and School Lunch ideas.  The first one about packing ideas will be up shortly and the list of Lunch ideas will be post either tomorrow or Thursday.  Come back to check it out and throw in your two (or more) cents too!

  1. It looks like a squid made of q tips…love to hear what it really is!

    Looks almost like what my kid would call a “squish ball”…the balls with all the little plastic “strings” on them. I personally feel like it is a type of flower but can’t remember the name of the kind.

    The flower of the chive.

  4. it’s GARLIC. I think. I’m pretty sure. Or it’s a chive blossom. One of the two.

    I dunno what it is- a pink, floating sea anemone? Somehow I think Ginger wins.

    Love all the international flavors!
