The Weekly Menu May 15 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms and daughters!  It’s hard to believe my mom passed 24 years ago and I’ve lived more than half of my life without her.  I still miss her but it is especially weird that I am nearing the age that she died.

But I’m lucky to have had her for as long as I did and I certainly wouldn’t be the person I am today without her unconditional love and joyful, kind spirit. And her wonderful sense of humor.

So it’s menu time again and here we go!

The Weekly Menu


It’s mostly non-GMO or organic, and totally “free from” gluten, dairy/casein (except for goat cheese), xanthan gum, soy and more…

Meatless Monday – Veggie Tacos & Refried Beans

Tuesday – Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps (trying a new version with Coconut Aminos Garlic Sauce instead of hoisin sauce)

Wednesday – Culinary Dropout & checking out the Domain Northside

Thursday – Honey Garlic Chicken, Veggie & Rice Bowls

Friday – Salad Niçoise

Saturday – “Beef” Stroganoff (using quinoa pasta and adding Trader Joe’s creamy goat cheese, which is similar to cream cheese for added creaminess to this dish)

Sunday – Chipotle Chicken Taquitos (New from Feel Good Foods), Salsa and Guacamole

Have a wonderful week everyone!

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.
