Menu Planning for October 5, 2014

Even though it doesn’t feel like fall here in Arizona (we had a high of 97 yesterday), I am enjoying all of the fall fruits and vegetables.

We’ve been lucky to happen upon bulk organic apples at .60 to .75 a pound.  We’ve made many batches of applesauce, and this week we’ll be buying 30 pounds of Fuji apples that will hopefully stay crisp in our refrigerator for a few months.

Another one of my favorites is sweet potatoes.  I absolutely love sweet potato fries!  The theme for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap is sweet potatoes, so visit some of the other bloggers’ menu plans to get more great ideas how to use sweet potatoes.

Most of my meals this week will be coming from our freezer stash except a new recipe that I can’t wait to try–Sweet Potato Apple Soup.

Melissa at Gluten Free Always has some yummy fall meals on tap for this week including Carribbean Chicken and Sweet Potatoes as well as Baked Ziti.

Heather at Celiac Family has a number of sweet potato recipes she’s making this week, including Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potato Stew.  She’s also planning to make Chicken Tacos with Corn and Black Bean Salad.

Lori at Gluten Free Week has a delicious looking Beef and Sweet Potato Stir Fry that she’s planning to serve.  Her Cranberry and Sweet Potato Bake would be perfect for a holiday celebration.

If you’re looking for more sweet potato recipes, Angela’s Kitchen has many of them!  Besides sweet potatoes, Angela’s also planning on preparing Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin.  Yum!

Bethy at The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything has temperatures down in the 40s, which has motivated her to make Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (can I come over for breakfast?) and Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Bread.
