We have yet another exciting and busy week ahead. You know....board meetings, school excursions, School open evening, book club, Mum coming for the weekend, a night out for dh & I, a church anniversary to celebrate. Not to mention the usual work, housework, school assignments and homework. And meals. Yes, in between all the doing's this week we need to eat!

This week Beyond My Picket Fence we will be feasting thus:

Monday: Baked Gnocchi with Roasted Tomato Sauce
Tuesday: Bacon Wrapped Chicken, vegies
Wednesday: Fish a'la Maggie Beer, vegies
Thursday: Singapore Noodles
Friday: Chicken & Dumplings
Saturday: Tuna & Pasta
Sunday: Honey Mustard Chicken, hassleback potatoes, vegies

I've been cheating myself a little this last week and my skin is getting pretty cranky with me. Beginning today I'm getting strict with my diet again. Fruit & yoghurt or eggs for breakfast and salads, soups and stir fries are on the menu for lunches. I'm going on a Year 3 excursion tomorrow so I need to come up with something that will travel well that isn't a sandwich. I'm thinking a salad or cold Asian noodles.

Sounds like a fun-filled week! I find it so hard to find healthy food "to go," and I think it would be even harder if you're trying to keep gluten out of your diet. Let us know if you get any inspirations!

It's a matter of being organised and just getting your head around it I think Frances. I have gluten free flour in the house, so when I make things like gnocchi I use that instead, and I keep GF pasta on hand too.

It's amazing what you can find when you really look throughout the supermarket. I'm loving glass noodles from the Asian section, which are made from mung beans!

Today I ended up taking a salad with me ~ lettuce, baby spinach, l/o chicken from last night, olives, sun dried tomatoes, a boiled egg, parmesan cheese and roasted capsicum, dressed with mayo & dijon mustard and the oil from the tomato jar. It was beautiful.
