Menu Plan and Goals

Week one of pledge drive for the radio station (and my husband getting home from work an hour or two later than normal) is over. Today starts week number two. Hopefully they will make their goal on Friday and be funded for the next year.

After a busy week and trying to get lots accomplished on Saturday, a relaxing Sunday afternoon was nice. The amazing weather put it over the top. The kids loved spending the afternoon outside. Unfortunately, it didn’t wear them out enough that they crashed. They both fought bedtime hard, thanks to the time change. It was a good day to spend as a family before we head into the busy next 7 days.

Starting this coming Sunday we are going to eliminate wheat from our diet until Easter to see if it makes any difference with our son’s eczema. Don’t know if it will end up making any difference or not, but it’s worth a shot. Have any of your children had eczema?

Menu Plan and Goals - From this Kitchen Table

(Using up quite a few meals with wheat this week.)


  • Homemade Pizza
  • Spaghetti
  • Homemade Frozen Pizza
  • Leftovers
  • Guacamole


  • Salad
  • Salad with quinoa and mexican spiced black beans (similar to this)
  • Leftovers
  • Sweet Potatoes


  • Monkey Bread (Cut the butter and sugar coating in half)
  • Pancakes
  • Oatmeal


Once I get through the Worker’s Reception for the membership drive of our concert association next Sunday, I’ll have a 2 1/2 week break before another busy week obligations with them. At least the pledge drive will be over by then.

What goals are you hoping to accomplish?
Do you have any favorite wheat free menu ideas to share?

    My kids have a dairy allergy and struggle with eczema too. It’s no fun at all. I hope cutting the wheat out helps. Your menu looks yummy.

      Sorry that your kids have a dairy allergy! I hope that no wheat helps too. If not dairy is next on my list to try eliminating. We’ll see what happens – I figure it’s worth a shot though.

    My youngest daughter has eczema. It is much worse in the winter than in other months due to the dry air in the house. She’s a picky eater and I haven’t tried an elimination diet with her yet. Maybe cutting out wheat will help with your son.

      Maybe Spencer’s will get better now that spring is coming as well. We keep slathering stuff on it but it never goes away completely. Who knows if the wheat will do anything, but I figure it’s worth a shot.
