Last Weeks Menu – 15 Feb

Last week was a fairly big week, baking wise.

I made No-Bake Walnut Cookies (which are stored in the freezer), raw brownie bites (don’t tell my husband what’s in them!), apple cinnamon muffins, Banana Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins (the recipe uses raspberries but I used blueberries instead), my version of My Kind of Bliss Bliss Balls, chocolate slice and passionfruit slice.  The passionfruit slice was an old recipe that I haven’t used in a long time as it isn’t gluten free.  I used tapioca flour & coconut flour to make it gluten free.

For breakfast I made an apple, almond & cinnamon chia pudding which lasted for a few days, served with some nut granola I had made the week before.

For my sons lunches I made nacho scrolls with leftover Tric’s mince and scroll dough.  He also took a version of caesar salad a couple of days with the leftover chicken schnitzel.

For dinners we had:

Monday – Tric’s Minice – a nacho style mince

Tuedsay – GF pancakes for shrove Tuesday using an adapted version of my GF pancake

recipe.  These worked well and they were all gone.  I’ll have to make them again soon.

Wednesday – Chicken Schnitzel

Thursday – Dinner at Mum & Dad’s – marinated chicken & vegies

Friday – French Onion Steak

Saturday – Mexican Meatballs

Sunday – Lasagna – all homemade including GF lasagna sheets, homemade tomato puree & homemade almond milk to make the cheese sauce.  It was the first time I have made my own pasta and will definitely do this again.  We rarely have lasagna as I can’t buy any lasgana sheets that both my husband and son can eat.

Gluten Free Meat Pie

For Australia Day a few weeks ago I decided to attempt making a gluten free pie, again.  I have attempted this several times before but never had very good results.  This time it wasn’t too bad for a gluten free pie and I’ll be making this again.  The top rough puff pastry had layers similar to a shop bought meat pie made with wheat flour.

Last Weeks Menu – 1 Feb

As my son returned to school last week.  I did some baking in preparation for that.  For lunches I made Pizza Scrolls.  He only went to school for 3 days so I had some left for today.

I also made some Choc Crunch Granola, Seed Toast, chilli roasted trail mix (I used some almonds as well as the cashews & pine nuts instead of the pepitas), a version of spiced pumpkin seed cranberry snack bars (unfortunately something leaked on it while it was cooling in the fridge so it went a bit soggy).

For my husband I made a batch of Chocolate Brownies, gluten free chocolate chip cookies

(I use dark Lindt chocolate instead of chocolate chips) and Paleo Oreo Cookies

(mine weren’t paleo as I did use icing sugar in the cream filling),  Both of the new recipes were a hit and I will be making them again.

Dinners:

  • Monday – Boston Beans & Sausages
  • Tuesday – A GF meat pie for Australia Day!

  • Wednesday – KFC (Krispy Fried) chicken made with brown rice flour, air fryer chips & coleslaw.  I did have something else on the menu but wasn’t feeling too well.  I sent my daughter to the shops for a BBQ chicken and a dry coleslaw mix but they didn’t have any so she bought me the chicken strips and I had the KFC coating in the cupboard so it was a quick easy meal.
  • Thursday – Mince & Pasta
  • Friday – Leftover mince & pasta (my daughter was not at home for dinner either Wed or Thurs so it was enough to feed 3 of us for 2 nights.)
  • Saturday – Korean Beef Noodle Bowls with rice noodles
  • Sunday – Rissoles, air fryer chips, carrots & peas
