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!

Monday
fresh tomatoes
Wednesday
roasted potatoes OR millet/quinoa dish
chard
Thursday
steamed veggies
gluten free buns
Friday
Leftovers OR
Saturday
Beets & kale
Gluten Free Cornbread
Sunday

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!
