The Weekly Menu Oct. 9-15 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Time for the Weekly Menu

Hello everyone!  It’s going to be a busy and super fun week for me so I need a game plan to get us through dinners this week.  Theater season starts this week and I’m super excited because the first show is RENT.  Hamilton is touring next season and will be in Austin.  Season ticket holders get first dibs on Hamilton tickets.  So we are joyfully supporting the arts!  Lots of fun shows will be coming this year including Book of Mormon.

Then I’m headed to the Driftwood wineries on Saturday for a bachelorette party.  I’ll have to take a bunch of gluten free snacks with me.  And we’ll probably just eat out somewhere after that.  So I won’t be cooking too much this week.

I have another dentist appointment, too.  I’ve cracked another tooth – apparently I’m grinding me teeth at night – and an old filling popped out.  So I had to get the filling replaced and I’m getting a crown put on it next week.  We had to pull another cracked molar not too long ago.  Anyway, I’m definitely getting a mouth guard so maybe I won’t lose anymore teeth.  So crazy!  At least my dentist is good.

Alright so here we go with the menu plan for the week!

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.
