The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Dec. 7 #menuplanning

Trail of Lights Giveaway

We’ve got a lot of stuff going on this week so although menu planning helps, it’s really just a rough game plan. Speaking of game plans – so proud of the Longhorns and Coach Strong. The players are so young and the team is getting better! I’m really excited about the future of Texas football! \m/??

We are going to a preview of the Trail of Lights tonight. They have a new pass called the Trail of Lights ZiP Fast Pass presented by HomeAway. The ZiP Fast Pass gives attendees front-of-the-line access to the Trail at 6 PM, before it opens to the public. ZiP purchasers will also have access to Kringle’s Kantina and the HomeAway ZiP Lounge in the VIP Hospitality area for cookies and hot cocoa. ZiP passes serve as your admission ticket. No additional gate ticket is required.

We are going to check it all out tonight and I’ll have one ZiP Pass to give away so keep an eye out for how to enter on Facebook! I’ll announce a random winner on Wednesday, December 9.

So here is the organic, casein free, gluten free weekly menu for December 7 (click on links for recipes):

Hi! I’m Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I’m kind of a science nerd, too. In the ’90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook ’em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
