Menu Plan Monday – June 8, 2009

I’m walking 60 miles in the Breast Cancer 3-day!  Will you help me reach my goal?


It’s the last week of school!  Yay!  I don’t know who is more excited about it, the kids or me.  It has been pretty chilly around here (weird) and rainy this weekend (good, we need it).  The tri my husband did this weekend was a bit chilly to cheer at, but the girls were into it despite the drizzle.  Bike, Daddy, bike!!


We celebrated my hubby’b birthday yesterday with a gluten and dairy free French silk pie (mmmm…  chocolate) and beef and chicken fajitas.  His dad is in town, so it was extra special.  It’s my birthday today, and we are just hanging out, doing the regular things, BUT I got a present yesterday…  Do you want to know what it is?  

The 2009 Gluten-Free Culinary SummitI am so excited!  I had the best time last year at the 3rd annual summit in Rhode Island.  So, I’ll be in CO this year, who’s going to be there, too?  Let me know!  


Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  It’s insane how many people link up now.  You are bound to find inspiration over there.  Sea of the Book of Yum is the host for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap.  She has picked pizza for the theme this week.  My kid’s will love that!  I think that will have to be our end of school celebration meal.  I think I need to try Sea’s Walnut Dairy Free Pesto this week for my part of the pizza.  I love me some pesto!  My kids want to try to grill pizza (yeah, we watch cooking shows for fun, my poor kids).  I am not very sure how that would work out with the squishy gluten free crust, but I am sure we will do a trial run this summer sometime, so we will have to see how that goes…


Have a great week!  I will be back on Friday with Gluten Freezer Friday.  Last week was canceled due to having visitors…  Also, next week I will be starting a series letting you all know about the different gluten free menu plan services out there.  There are a lot more options than you might think, all with different features, so it was very interesting to check out.  See ya then!

  1. Happy birthday! Looks like it’s off to a great start with an exciting early present!

  2. Hi Angela,
    I’ve grilled gluten-free pizza and it actually works pretty well! I did use Chebe, which is especially easy to work with. But, I bet you could easily use another crust (like Carol Fenster’s), especially if you use a BBQ pizza grill or parbake it in the oven for a few minutes before transferring it to the grill. Let me link to the grilled pizza recipe I did on the 4th of July for you… It’s been ages since I made some and that sounds really good! 😀 Have fun! Now I want some grilled pizza, hehe.

      Thanks for the grilled pizza tips. My kids want to grill pizza so much… Pizza plus grilling, what’s not to love? If the weather holds for next week that would be such a fun experiment for the first week of summer vacation. I’ll let you know how it goes. Mmmmm… pizza…
