Menu Plan - Week of August 8

Meatless Monday:

Vegetable Spring Rolls with Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce (I’m going to try this using homemade macadamia nut butter instead of the peanut butter.  If you are allergic to peanuts and/or tree nuts, you could also try using Sunbutter.  I’m also going to try making some Homemade Gluten Free Hoisin Sauce so I can make my corn-free substitutions including this recipe for Homemade Sriracha Sauce.

Corn allergies are exhausting! :mrgreen:


Chicken Satay (use either Bragg Liquid Aminos or Gluten-Free Tamari, or to make these Soy-Free try using: Coconut Aminos.  I will also use coconut sugar instead of the brown sugar and try making my own corn-free Tabasco Sauce, since distilled vinegar is usually derived from corn) and Thai Cucumber Salad.


 Zesty Marinated Pork Chops, Quinoa Pilaf (always make sure to rinse and soak quinoa before you cook it, this will remove the bitter tasting saponins), and Green Salad


Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce, Green Salad


Asian Round Steak in the Slowcooker (recipe coming soon) over Basmati Rice (no rice for me), Green Salad


Herb Crusted Salmon with Lemon-Caper Vinaigrette, smoked sweet potatoes (this will be an experiment) and Spicy Lemon Broccoli (I will omit the butter)


Homemade Garden Vegetable Soup, Green Salad
