I have declared this week Irish week at Glutenfreeweek in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Am hoping this week brings some of that Irish Luck. Couldn't we all use it? So let's get out some of that green food coloring and color our drinks green while we enjoy some Irish meals along with some easy weeknight favorites.

Funny that Potato Week was last week because Irish Week and Potato Week seem so intertwined. This week we have a few Irish meals planned. For St. Patrick's Day we're having a classic - Corned Beef and Cabbage. Wednesday is a very tasty Potato Leek Soup, and Friday is Fish and Chips.

I'm making Chicken Pho on Sunday. I've changed the recipe a bit this time. I'm adding garlic, cardamon and fish sauce to the recipe to increase the flavor while still trying to keep it easy. Tuesday night we're having Chicken Kebabs. My son has recently requested this one. He insists on keeping the meat on the stick and I think that is most of the fun of it for him. It's a really quick and simple recipe too. On Thursday I'm planning a light meal with Chef Salad and some gluten-free crackers. That's it for the week. Luck of the Irish to you!

This week the Gluten Free Menu Swap is hosted by Heather at Celiac Family and the theme is Avocado. I'm not quite in sync with the theme this week but I do have a Chef Salad that has avocados in the recipe. For other ideas check out the Monday Menu Swap at OrgJunkie.
