Menu Plan Monday (January 24, 2010)

I have to say last week's crockpot beef in pomegranate sauce was AMAZING! It was super easy to make, and the flavour was seriously so good. I tried to follow the recipe pretty closely. The things I changed were using pom-cranberry juice, omitting the raisins, using diced instead of crushed tomatoes (what I had on hand) and substituting dried herbs I had on hand for the French herb mix. It was a huge hit with me and my husband. I served it with mashed potatoes and veggies. It makes a lot of sauce, but it's good drizzled on the potatoes.

Well, I'm off of gluten free eating for now. I did 3 full weeks of it and then called it quits. We had company and I baked a pie I had in the freezer, and I just couldn't resist :-). I can't say I noticed a big change for the better when I was gluten-free. In fact, I personally think I had more of a stomach ache when I was gluten-free (maybe because I was eating more dairy? I don't know). However, I do think that the rash on the back of my arms significantly improved during the time I was gluten-free. So, my plan is to now go back on gluten and then see what happens. I will probably do that for awhile and then perhaps try another month of gluten-free. I'm kind of experimenting with it all. This is a busy, busy week for us. I have 3 doctor's appointments in 3 days, so needless to say, it's going to be a simple week of meals.
