Is it ok if I start this? I've never done a whole month at a time before so I am pretty excited! We are dairy, corn, soy, egg, nut, peanut and gluten-free right now and DD1 is on the GAPS diet so I am trying to get more organized. Here are our dinners, veggies may change if something else is on sale/looks great.

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:
|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.
