Meal planning part 3

Allergen free cooking can get tedious.  You figure out "safe" meals and repeat, repeat, repeat.  To break out of the rut, I found making a meal list was helpful.  Also, I also like to assign a type of meal to each day of the week.  For example:

Monday: crock pot day
Tuesday: pasta
Wednesday: beef
Thursday: chicken
Friday: pizza
Saturday: meatless
Sunday: leftovers

Then I get creative for that day.  Pasta day could be stirfry, spagetti, lasanga, etc.  Crock post day could be a roast, shredded pork/chicken/beef, whole chicken.... you get the idea.

What are some of your favorite go to meals?

Dinner Ideas
Pot roast
Beef shredders
Ribs (pork or beef)
Tacos (soft or hard shell)
Hamburgers (turkey, beef, veggie)
Asian Stir Fry (beef, chicken, veggie)

Crockpot chicken
BBQ chicken (wings or tenders)
Lemon Chicken
Pot pie
Fried Chicken
Chicken Alfredo
Chicken parmesana

Lamb chops
Lamb roast

Pork chops
Pork tenderloin

Grilled Salmon
Fried Tiliapia
Baked Cod

  1. We are in that rut right now. Feel like we eat the same old things everyday. Then we fight about it. So fun. I need to get more creative, but I'm having trouble doing that lately. We grill a lot and we do crock pot meals. My husband has a rub he uses when we make stuff in the crockpot, but its been making me sick. I'm thinking it might have hidden gluten in it. But I'm not sure. I told him to stop using it because every time we eat it, I get really sick from it. Anyway, looking around for more ideas.
