Weekly meal plan
Sep 6 2021
It's labor day week-end, which means summer is officially over.... I am going to start looking into fall flavor soon. I saw winter squashes at the farmers market today.... Falls is almost here! It is still a bit too hot here to make these more hearty dishes now! But I am excited just thinking about it and what I can come up with... Don't worry, I will make sure to share the good ones :)
Monday: Avocado and cucumber gazpacho with roasted corn salsa. Since the weather is going to be more than 90 degrees, this is going to be perfect, light and fresh for our Monday night soup.... It is very similar to my gazpacho from the blog, just adding some fun toppings to make it even more delicious.
Tuesday: Idaho trouts with summer veggies and roasted carrots. I got these beautiful trouts at the market today and can't wait to simply sauté them. I have a couple of good recipes for trouts on the blog but I want to innovate a bit and will make toasted garlic breadcrumbs and fresh herbs to sprinkle on the fish. I will share on my stories and on the blog as well.
Wednesday: 1 skillet Mediterranean chicken with couscous. I love the warm spices that I use here such as paprika, cumin, cinnamon and ginger. I also add a lot of veggies such as carrots, chickpeas, spinach... I am using the same method to prepare this as I did for the orzo chicken I made last week.
Thursday: Tortellini al pesto with fresh peas. I am using the same preparation as my gnocchis I have on the blog, just mixing it up and using tortellini for a change.
Friday: Honey sesame glazed salmon with soba noddles. This is a new recipe, I am feeling inspired this week... The glaze is combination of soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. I will spoon it on the fish and cook it for 8-10 minutes .... I think soba and spinach would be a great side dish here... When you cook the spinach in a skillet, add some of the same sauce as the marinade and toss in the soba, finish it with sesame seeds and green onions. I will write up recipe with all details as I make it, but just in case you cannot wait, this should help you.
Saturday: DYI pizza night. I wan tot try a pesto and spinach version as well as one from Goop with Brussels sprouts and ricotta... There will be the traditional tomato and cheese for the kids and pineapple for Harry...
