Weekly meal plan
Sep 26 2021
I keep things on check and really easy with my weekly meal plans. I buy a lot of fresh produces on Sunday at the farmers market and make my meal according to it. Then I go to supermarket on Mondays and Fridays for whatever else I need. I also like to keep my freezers stocked up.
Monday: Cauliflower spinach soup. This is as usual how I start my soups with mirepoix and olive oil, adding cauliflower and stock until the cauliflower is tender and cooked through. Then adding the spinach in the end, just before blending it so it keeps its nutrients and vibrant color. Adjusting seasoning before serving... There is going to be toasted bread or baguette with some kind of spread (because kids love having something to dip in the soup). I also serve this with a crudités platter and some cheese for those who need a little extra...
Tuesday: Turkey chili. I haven't made chili in a while beach the weather has been so hot... My fave part about it is the toppings: avocado, cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, .... Plus it can be made in a slow cooker ahead of time....
Wednesday: Fried rice. I might do this recipe linked or try out something with brown rice and kimchi that I have read about. If I do I will definitely share if it is successful and worth it. Also addd some soy shrimps because kiddos love it!
Thursday: Chicken with orzo pasta. I like the 1 pot dinner at least once a week.. Orzo pasta cooks quickly so it works nicely here. You could add kale, peas, spinach or some similar veggies that coos quickly for extra greens....
Friday: Miso salmon with coconut rice. I haven't made miso fish in a while and iI know that my kids love this preparation... It is super say and flavorful. The marinade takes a couple of minutes to assemble and the fish cooks in less than 15... The rice gets done in the rice cooker so it is a no brainer.... Easy and delicious Friday night dinner!
Saturday: Shrimp and farro salad. I cook everything separate here so if I want to keep this vegetarian, this work really nicely here. Again this is a very versatile dish where you can add or takeaway veggies as you feel like.
Sunday: Pesto pasta. No brainer, easy and a household fave! I can add peas, spinach and or broccoli for extra greens!
