Menu Plan Monday ~ Jan 20/14

Hi friends, happy menu planning Monday to you.  I hope your menu planning last week was successful and helpful.  That’s really what it’s all about….less stress in the long run.  I love menu planning for that reason alone 🙂

So this week is our January Dinner Club.  This month’s theme is Mennonite food.  Well has that ever proven to be a difficult one to come up with something that is gluten-free.  My research shows me that Mennonite folks sure love their gluten 🙂  I did end up finding something that I can make gluten-free which is a good thing because that might be all I eat there lol.  Actually it totally doesn’t bother me at all.  I’m not a foodie and I really just love going to hang out with some great girlfriends.  I’ll just eat before I go and it’ll be fine.

I’ve got some more great resources for you this week.  I do hope you find these links that I collect for you each week helpful.  Whatever I can do to support your menu planning endeavors I will, well except come cook your food for you…ha!

    I think your choice of recipe for your dinner club looks great! I know what you mean about eating before hand, that quickly becomes normal for those of us with allergies. I hope you enjoy the roasted tomato BLT. We love that one.

      Yes I had checked that website out extensively but wasn’t crazy about their gluten-free recipes and the ingredients they required 🙁

    I feel kind of silly asking but I hope I’m not the only one who isn’t sure exactly what Mennonite food would be? As always, thanks for hosting! It is such a huge help in motivating me to actually make a menu plan.
