The host for the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week is Gluten Free Goodness. The theme is Cheep and Easy Foods which is pretty much all I make during the week. We eat mainly whole foods, and do all our baking from scratch which keeps the cost down tremendously. As the big kids are also helping with the cooking now (one time a week one of them makes dinner – yay!), the easy part is a must when you are teaching or learning different cooking techniques. You don’t have to make dinner too complicated to get a great meal when you are using fresh, whole ingredients, thank goodness! This week my menu is pretty chicken heavy, as our local free range chicken is on sale.
For more menu ideas head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.
