1 week Menu Plan & Grocery List

WOW, has it been a busy summer!  Seems like they always are, but I enjoy being on the go.  I have been getting a little reading done, recovering from vacation and keeping up with and training our toddlers has just been a full time job if ya know what I mean!   I actually had time to post today.

So, good news, I got muscle allergy testing done and I am NOT allergic to Gluten!!!! Yay!  I won't be avoiding wheat like the plague any more, so you will notice I will have more recipes using flour (preferably organic so there is no GM wheat).  Over all won't have in our diets as much as we have had in the past.

Here is what we are cooking up over here this week:

Chicken Sausage Stir Fry served over rice (First time trying this style, it had a very mild sweet & sour taste)
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans (from our garden yay!)
Mexican-style frittata
Chicken Parmesan with homemade spaghetti sauce, served over brown rice noodles, Salad
BLTS (with tomatoes from our garden, they finally arrived), chips, fruit
Taco salad with shredded chicken
Meatball subs, fresh fruit
