The Weekly Menu Feb. 20 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  So I’m in the thick of it this week.  I’m so glad I worked out the weekly menus for the next several weeks before things got crazy.  I’m working on a presentation for a paper called “Human Genome Sequencing Using Unchained Base Reads on Self-Assembling DNA Nanoarrays”… and it’s complicated!  Fascinating too, but I’m swimming in the details and it is taking days to sort it all out.  Then I’ve got a midterm in genomics and short paper due in my food microbiology class.  Plus all the other stuff like lectures and reading…  So it’s on!

And almost over.  ?

Now I just have to come up with a grocery list and Brett can handle the shopping and we can easily cook up everything we’ve got planned for the week!

And I’m super excited that we have asparagus growing in the patio garden this year that I can actually harvest!  YAY!!!!  Plus my little cucumber seedling is growing well! ? Grow little cucumber plant grow!

So here is the gluten free and dairy/casein free (except for the occasional parmesan or goat cheese) and mostly organic and non-GMO menu for the week!  Truly healthified comfort food!  ?

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu

Meatless Monday – Black Beans & Cilantro Lime Rice

Tuesday – Roasted Chicken & Roasted Veggies

Wednesday – Fried Chicken Tenders (brine in water and seasoned salt, bread with oat four, fry in EVOO and coconut oil) & Sweet ‘n Spicy Cabbage

Thursday – Chicken Fajita Taco Salad

Friday – Beef Burgers & Veggie Fries

Saturday – Easy Meat Sauce & Quinoa Pasta

Sunday – Italian Meatball Sandwiches

Have a great week everyone!  And wish me luck.

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.

    I met a cute girl at a breakfast event I was at on Thursday who eats gluten free and dairy free and I sent her to your blog. She sent me a nice note thanking me. You sharing these recipes is helping a lot of people. :)
    • Oh that makes me so happy! It’s hard when you can’t enjoy everything and you love food! There are only so many stir-fry and kale/ckickpea/butternut squash salads one can endure! ?
