GF Recipes to Try

I've got quite a few recipes that I want to try:

Graham Crackers-- Kevin's b-day is coming up & he loves cherry cheesecake... gotta have this for his birthday!

Homemade Noodles-- can't have Thanksgiving or Christmas without noodles!

Flour Tortillas-- we aren't big fans of corn tortillas

These burgers just look good... minus the buns!

And these calzones...

GF Taco Dip

1 pound or 1.5 hamburger
garlic salt
Taco Seasoning
1 2 pound box of Velveta type cheese
1 big can refried beans ** I made my own**
1 jar of Salsa

Brown the hamburger with the onion and garlic salt and pepper. When that is finished, add the taco seasoning to it with the water. Let sit a few minutes. Add meat to a crock pot with the salsa, cheese, and beans. Let simmer until all the cheese is melted. Serve with corn chips.

Since we aren't a big fan of corn tortillas, this made a nice easy taco type dinner.

GF Teriyaki Chicken

We had baked teriyaki chicken for supper last night & the pan was completely licked clean!!!!

Our favorite bottled teriyaki sauce has gluten in it. The only thing I changed was I added a little bit of brown sugar also. Next time, I'm going to make it in the CP!

This week we found out that Kevin has an allergy to wheat/grains. I have gone through the kitchen cleaning it out of the contraband products. Gluten is in a lot of products!!! Thankfully, there are a lot of products that are available that are okay. I'll be making a lot of things from scratch again. I am going to be going through my recipes & adjusting them to fit our new needs. Because of cross-contamination issues, we are going to all go gluten free.

Meal Plan for the Week #1

I was asked by a friend from church how I plan my menu. I'm not sure this will be too helpful for her. I am really going to try to get this menu planning streamlined a little bit better & rotate them. I really like to try out new recipes, but with archery... I want to be able to have a menu plan that I can rotate.

I have some leftover rice in the freezer, so one day this week I'm going to try this Cheesy Mexican Chicken

My boys have been asking for homemade pizza so we are doing that one night.

I have some bell peppers in the fridge that need to be used up, so we will have fajitas one night.

I need a crock pot meal for Thursday, so we are having Beef Stroganoff.

I asked Kevin what he wanted for supper this week & his suggestion was enchiladas. We don't get tired of Mexican food here. (I actually have a recipe in my cookbook for this, so I'll type this up later in the week.)

This recipe for Bow Tie Lasagna has been on my "to try" list for awhile, so we are going to have it this week.

Hashbrown & Ham Skillet

1 pkg frozen hasbrowns, thawed
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. chopped green pepper
2 TBS butter
2 c. cubed cooked ham
salt & pepper to taste
2 tsp flour
1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. shredded cheese

In a large skillet, cook the potatoes, onion & green pepper in butter over medium heat. Stir in ham, salt & pepper. In a small bowl, combine flour & milk until smooth; add to skillet. Cook for 5-8 minutes until mixture is thick. Sprinkle with cheese. Cook 1 min or until cheese is melted.

Taco Bake

1 lb hamburger
1/2 c. diced onion
1 pkg crescent rolls
1 can chili beans, undrained
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 c. cheese

Preheat oven to 375*. Brown beef & onion; drain off fat. Spray 9 x 13 pan. Unroll crescent rolls. Pinch together to make a crust. Bake for 9 min. Add beans & taco seasoning to beef, mix. Top crust with meat mixture & bake for 10 min. Top with cheese & bake 5 more min.
