Meal Plan Monday and Gluten-free Menu Swap: Sep 21, 2008

Posted By yum On September 21, 2008 @ 9:23 pm In Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday, Menu, Menu Plan Monday | 2 Comments

[1]I made two versions of this spaghetti squash mac n’ cheese [2], one dairy-free and one with dairy for the DH. Both versions had sauteed onions and mushrooms, but instead of an ordinary roux, I made a rice milk roux for the dairy free version and then added my pine nut un-cheese [3]. It was yummy, but the DH wasn’t buying the squash part, even with his cheesy version.

For this week, the theme ingredient of the Gluten-Free Menu Swap is the apple. The menu swap is hosted this week by Cooking Uncooking [4]. You can find other great menus at Org Junkie.
