Day 1:  Grill steak or chicken using McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning.  Grill enough for 2 dinners worth.  We’ll use the leftovers for Tostadas.

Day 2:  (and this is brilliant!) Stir-Fry

Chop veggies that we will use for 3 dinners- Stir-fry, Quesadillas, and Italian Soup.  🙂  I used 6 small zucchini, a clove of garlic, an onion, about 4 cups of mushrooms, 4 large tomatoes, and 2 red peppers.  You could substitute any veggie you wanted to replace these (except you really need the tomato): squash, carrots, fresh spinach, cauliflower, …

DSC_0665Saute the onion and garlic first until soft, then add the firm vegetables.  Don’t add the tomato yet.

When veggies are done, take out 1/3 of them to use for Stir-Fry tonight.  Season with ginger powder, cayenne pepper, and soy sauce, and serve over rice.

Take out 1/2 of what’s left in skillet and put in a storage container to cool.  Mix in seasonings for Quesadillas: cumin, chili powder, and a little oregano. Put in fridge for later.

Now, add tomatoes to skillet and saute until softened.  I also added chopped fresh basil.  Put this into a storage container to cool.  We’ll make the soup from this later.

Day 3:  Tostadas, using meat from day 1

Get crispy tostada shells.  I use Mission.  Layer fixins on top: sour cream, guacamole, sliced grilled meat from day 1, cheese, salsa, lettuce, tomato.  Serve with sliced oranges.

Day 4:  Italian Soup

Put pre-cooked veggies from day 2 in a soup pot.  Add 2 cans of Spicy V-8 juice, a can of white beans, and italian seasonings.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese on top.  Serve with garlic toast.

Day 5: Ribs

Spray oven pan with cooking spray.  Put ribs in pan and season both sides with McCormick Grill Mates Steak Rub.  Pour GF Barbecue Sauce on top to coat.  Kraft Original is GF.  Bake at 225 for 8-10 hours, uncovered.  That’s it!  Serve with potato salad or Ore Ida french fries and a green salad.

Day 6:  Black Bean and Veggie Quesadillas

Use Mexican seasoned veggies from day 2.  Make Quesadillas using veggies, a can of black beans, and cheese.  Serve with raw carrots and Ranch dip.

Day 7: Breakfast Burritos

Cook 1 pound breakfast sausage in skillet, crumbled up.  Drain fat.  Add 8-10 beaten eggs and scramble until done.  Serve in corn tortillas with cheese and salsa.  Serve with fruit salad and orange juice.

ENJOY!!!

  1. Brynn’s BBQ rib recipe is to DIE for!! So simple, but sooooo yummy! I tried her first meal plan and was amazed at my culinary prowess! My very skeptical of GF husband actually complimented me on my cooking! A true first all the way around. Thanks, Brynn!

  2. Oh my! One of my favorite, most creative cooks has a blog with meal plans!!!! YAY! Even though we don’t eat GF, I can’t wait to make everything on here. My husband, who is also a huge fan of Brynn’s creative cooking thanks you too.
