The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Nov. 23 #menuplanning #thanksgiving
It’s Thanksgiving Week! And we are totally going to bail on making a turkey. For lots of reasons, but mainly I just don’t want to mess with it and my husband doesn’t really like roasted turkey so that was easy!
We recently became owners at Wheatsville Food Co-op and have had fun exploring the store, especially all the organic local goodies and specialty diet products (gluten free, dairy free, vegan…). Last week we found gluten free croutons (and tested recipes to make really good gluten free stuffing) and this week we discovered the bulk olive oil, local wildflower honey, agave section plus all the stuff below… I’m really loving it! You don’t have to be an owner to shop there and if you can’t get to one of the stores they have Instacart delivery in Austin!
We also found a gluten free, casein free pie crust (by Wholly Wholesome) + pumpkin pie mix (Farmer’s Market Brand & will use high fat coconut milk) + So Delicious CocoWhip = safe for me pumpkin pie! ? ? ?
Alright, so here is the casein free, gluten free weekly menu plan for Thanksgiving 2015:
Meatless Monday – Broccoli & Stir Fry Veggies with Orange Ginger Sauce (cut sauce recipe in half); Basmati Rice
Tuesday – Buffalo Chicken Salad (using Napa cabbage to change things up a bit)
Wednesday – Singapore Street Noodles
Thursday – ? Pot Roast with Carrots; Really Good Stuffing; Gravy; Pumpkin Pie with CocoWhip
Friday – Asian Bison Meatballs (testing a new recipe with liquid aminos, thai red curry paste, chives, ground bison and a binder if necessary); Crispy Asian Brussels Sprouts (from The Baker Mama) ; Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
Saturday – ? Ugly Christmas Sweater Party (taking graham cracker toffee) – My ugly sweater says “Fleece Navidad!” with a little sheep on it. Ha! ?
Sunday – Shepherd’s Pie with Ground Bison
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And if you are wondering what wine to serve check out this lovely list of Texas wines from Alissa Leenher, @SAHMmelier for @TXWineLover: Embracing Variety at the Thanksgiving Table. ??
