The Weekly Menu June 19-25 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Happy Father’s Day to all you awesome dads out there!  Hope your families are treating you well. 🙂

The menu this week is pretty standard gluten-free “healthified” comfort food: pasta for Meatless Monday, tacos on Tuesday, a weekly salad with summer fruit and fried goat cheese, mini personal pizzas, gumbo, and stuffed bell peppers.

I am going to freeze the goat cheese, coat it in organic brown rice cereal ground into a panko-like texture, and then fry it in a blend of coconut oil and olive oil.

Last week I was pretty busy in the kitchen.  We fried green tomatoes with flour, egg and the cereal coating – and they were incredible!  I also made a simple syrup with my zinfandel grapes.  And although we rarely eat sweets, I had to make a peach cobbler while peaches are in season.  It was pretty amazing with @nadamoo dairy free vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of the zinfandel syrup.

Hope you are having fun cooking with all the fresh fruit and summer veggies in season right now!

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.
