Kids are coming….



This weekend, my kids will be visiting from the Northeast.  It’s the first time we’ll be seeing them since October.

This visit poses a bit of a problem.  Several of us have dietary restrictions, while two of us don’t.  My son and I are gluten and dairy intolerant.  He is FODMAP intolerant.  My husband and I are both trying to eat heart healthy.  My other two eat normally.

So how can I pull this off, you ask?  With careful planning.

I have shared some recipes also.

Here is what I will be serving this week:

1st night:

Chicken cacciatore.

I will be going easy on the onions.  Using bottled gluten free sauce and fresh, local chicken.

I will be serving gluten free pasta.

2nd night:

Slow cooker Pot Roast in gravy

This looks yummy-never tried this recipe.  I will be leaving out the carrots and celery.  I will serve this with dairy free mashed potatoes and corn.

3rd night

We will be going to Nashville, so we will be having sandwiches for dinner

4th night

Salmon with teriyaki glaze

I will be making my own teriyaki sauce with gluten free soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil.

I will be serving this with rice.

5th night

Turkey tenderloins with gluten free cornbread stuffing and mixed vegetables

I will brush the tenderloins with olive oil and herbs.  This cornbread stuffing is delicious. I will be leaving out the sausage and apples.

6th night

Mom’s meatloaf

I will be using gluten free plain breadcrumbs and herbs.  I will serve this with smashed potatoes and zucchini noodles.

We will also be going out to a steak house some time during the week so the nights may vary.

With so many food intolerances to think of, it might be a bit daunting to figure out a menu everyone can enjoy.  But it can be done.  I will post my outcomes next week.
