The Weekly Menu Aug. 14-20 #glutenfree #menuplanning
I’m pretty excited Hatch chile season is in full swing. We are going to make a stew adapted from Life Made Simple (recipe link below on the menu). It was really delicious when I followed the original recipe, but this time we are going to use roasted tomatillos, chiles and jalapeños instead of using a salsa verde (which usually contains xanthan gum and isn’t organic). It freezes well so I’m going to make a lot of it.
I’m also going to make a very simple Hatch chile rice. They were selling Hatch chile salsa at Wheatsville last week so if they still have some, I’m probably going to use that to make a rice dish – 1 cup rice, 1 cup Hatch salsa, 1 cup chicken stock and 1/2 cup water. And any extra, I can throw in the soup.
We also found a new type of sausage I’m excited to try. It’s a free range and “free from” Cajun chicken sausage from Bilinski’s. Everything else this on the menu plan this week week is pretty standard go-to meals but cleaned up.
