Weekly meal plan
Sep 13 2020
We are almost halfway through September and fall is almost here.... I love cooking with winter squashes, apples, persimmons, root vegetables, pumpkins and all these yummy fall flavors.... I am going to start looking into maybe for next week. 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. I had something along the line when I went away to my spa a few weeks ago... 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 sill to my gazpacho for 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 th blog but I wan 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 Moroccan chicken with couscous. Stay tuned for this one, I am testing it out but really enjoy these 1 skillet dish where you assemble it all together... I love the warm spices that I will use here such as paprika, cumin, cinnamon and ginger. I will 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 also 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 and virile it for another minute or so.... 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 int eh 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...
