Eating Down the Pantry, Week Five

on January 28, 2013

This is an exciting week! We finish up our month long “Eating Down the Pantry Challenge” and start our “Gluten- and Dairy-Free trial“. We’re also fighting off another cold – sigh.

I’m going to go ahead and lay some wagers that this will be a muffin-heavy month. I’m not normally a muffin maker*, but what I know of baking with coconut flour – well, most of it involves muffins. 🙂

Sunday, January 27

Breakfast: Fried Oatmeal Pancakes
Lunch: Homemade Pizza
Dinner: Veggie soup for the kids and Tom Kha Ghai for the adults

Tasks: Pull applesauce from the freezer.

Monday, January 28

Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Coconut Flour muffins
Lunch: Leftovers
Steak Fajitas

Tasks: Check kombucha, research gluten-free sourdough starters, cool and bottle chicken stock – freeze. Pull ground meat from freezer. Finish meal plan. Make grocery list.

Tuesday, January 29

Breakfast: Mango smoothies and omelets
Dinner: meatloaf and butternut squash fries

Tasks: Get bread dough mixed up before bed. Soak oats for breakfast.

Wednesday, January 30

Lunch: Leftovers
Potato soup and homemade boule bread

Tasks: Pull pumpkin from freezer to thaw overnight in the fridge.

Thursday, January 31

Breakfast: Pumpkin Pie Casserole and Banana Smoothies
Lunch: leftovers
Braised Chicken with Butternut Squash and Cranberries and salad

Friday, February 1

Saturday, February 2

Breakfast: Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Salmon Croquettes with Romesco Sauce

*Um…yeah, I know coconut flour muffins have been on the meal plan the last few weeks as snacks, but I’ve not gotten them made. Any muffins we had were from the last big batch I made and threw in the freezer.

**This is where having 50-ish (not kidding) bananas in my freezer is a huge help. In case you missed how (and why!) I do this, here ya go!
