Back-to-School Menu Plan Monday

For me the start of school is a great time to work on getting us (erm, myself) into a daily  and weekly rhythm that feels more organized than our somewhat free-floating summers.  For me, having all three kids in school helps ground our schedule and gets us into routines that eventually (not at first, I will admit!) start to flow easily.   Emma started full day school for the first time last Wednesday (its going great, woohoo!), and Elsie and Delia start morning preschool 3 days a week this Wednesday.   I really want to be more intentional about what we do (and don’t do) each day, in order to make more time for the good stuff.  I hope to post more details about our/my daily plan for chores and activities, but for now, here’s a start, our dinners for the week!  While we are always dairy/beef free, for the past 2 months Lonnie has been gluten-free as well, so these are all dairy, gluten and beef free. We still sub wheat in for me and the kids sometimes, though!

fresh tomatoes
roasted potatoes OR millet/quinoa dish
steamed veggies
gluten free buns
Leftovers OR
Beets & kale
Gluten Free Cornbread

I am planning to write up my adapted dairy-free/gluten free enchilada recipe for a post sometime, it’s based on the above link and it ROCKS! Here are Elsie and Delia contemplating a version of them last fall (lately, I’ve been covering them with Daiya cheese shreds, which is pretty great!).

Dairy-Free Enchildas, ready to dig in!

What’s for dinner at your house this week?  I’d love to hear of any gluten-free favorites!
