Guess what?! DH and I are flying to FLORIDA this Wednesday night to stay at our family’s time share… If anyone has any GF restaurant, shopping, or bakery tips for the Captiva Island area, I’d love to hear about it! I should have internet access so I hope to post “on the road” – but this exciting plan means a little bit of a different kind of menu plan.

Dinners
Sunday: Greek (Mountain View)
Vegetarian Eggplant Moussaka from Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook
with Rice (Note: Dish was ok but not noteworthy…)

Tuesday: Preparation
Bake fresh bread to take to Florida

Thursday: Happy Valentine’s Day!- Thai (Captiva Island, Florida)
Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce [2]
Coconut Rice [3]
Protein of family’s choice (not prepared by me, haha)
for dessert?
Grilled Fruit Satays with Pineapple coconut peanut sauce and Chocolate fruit fondue (From Peanut Butter Planet Cookbook)

Friday: Mediterranean
Savory Feta Polenta with fresh herbs [4]
Salmon or prawns (lucky DH gets to make this)
Roasted Asparagus
Aunt Joan’s summer salad

Saturday: Italian Fusion
Risotto (variation)
Grilled Sesame Tofu [5]
Chili Garlic Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Sunday: Flight back to Mountain View

For Breakfasts away from Home I’ll have…
Pamela’s Pancakes
Toast (with that bread I brought from home)
my Greasy Spoon Hash Browns Recipe [6]
Eggs
Tofu Scramble Recipe
Fresh Fruit

With sandwiches (grilled cheese, anyone?) and leftovers for lunch. :)

This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is hosted by Ginger Lemon Girl and the ingredient of the week is CHOCOLATE. I also love submitting my menus to Organizing Junkie’s Meal Plan Monday as well, so head on over there for some great menu plans. :)

PS I’ve been tagged something like 3 times this week, so I promise to give you your 7/8 juicy facts about me shortly! I may think of them while strolling the beach in florida… maybe while sipping coffee at some as-to-yet-be discovered coffeeshop… maybe while kissing my sweetie under the moon on Valentine’s Day (don’t worry, the facts won’t be THAT juicy, haha)… Can you tell I’m excited about our vacation??
