It's about time that I got my plan finalized!  We are cutting back (though not eliminating entirely, yet) on white flours and pastas so it really challenged me this month to come up with our plan.  It isn't impossible, I just needed to readjust my thinking a little.  Here is our April:



Mon. Tues. Wed. Thur. Fri. Sat. Sun.
        Potluck Dinner Chicken Pot Pie Chicken Stir Fry
Chicken Curry, Brown Rice Salisbury Steaks, Mashed Potatoes, Peas Pizza Taco Salad Eggplant Parmesan Birthday Party Black Bean Soup
Chicken & Basil Roulades w/Mustard Sauce, Baked Squash, Green Beans Beef & Broccoli, Brown Rice Salmon Fish Sticks, Carrots & Peas Black Bean Mushroom Burgers, Roast Corn Pork Chops, Brown Rice, Broccoli BBQ Chicken stuffed in a loaded Baked Sweet Potato Sautéed Spinach w/Chickpeas & Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Roasted Potatoes
Chicken Cordon Bleu, Twice Baked Potatoes, Broccoli Fiesta Steak, Tomato Salad, Corn Pizza Taco Salad Vegetable Torta Greek Grilled Chicken Kebabs, Easter
Herb Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potatoes Stuffed Zucchini Cups Fish, Rice, Broccoli Potato Nachos Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes, Sauteéd Apples Chicken Florentine, Whole Wheat Pasta, Peas  


Now that I'm looking at it, it is looking really ambitious, lol.  I have a huge backlog of recipes from previous months to post, but as I find time to do it for this month they will be posted here. 


I think when I plan next month I'm going to have to peruse some of our previous threads to get some inspiration for more wheat-free ideas.  I'm so use to pasta or bread finishing or tying the meal together that I got stumped when I tried to avoid them.
