Weekly meal plan
Nov 30 2020
I can't believe Thanksgiving is over already! It went by so fast! We were all looking forward to it, to some sense of celebration and normality and all the delicious food! We enjoyed every minute of it and now it is over! Anyway good food but too much of it.... so this week I will prepare light meals to recover...
Monday is not going to be soup for once. It is my husband birthday so I making his favorite food. Dover sole, with cauliflower and celery root purée and petites peas and carrots.... The purée is really easy to make: peel, chop and boil the veggies, transfer to food processor until smooth, with olive oil some salt and pepper. For the peas and carrots , I will sauté the peas with green onions and olive oil and roast the carrots for 20-25 minute at 400F.
Tuesday: Tortilla soup. Since we did not do have soup last night I am combining Taco Tuesday and Monday night soup. Cheese and avocado quesadillas as well for kiddos and all the yummy toppings for me ( avocados, tortilla chips, sour cream and cheese)
Wednesday Chicken and veggies lettuce cups. I am keeping it simple tonight and light. This DIY kind of dinner is really easy. I will make some green rice and add edamame and also some kale cauliflower rice as well (which is simply finely chopped kale sautéd together with the caulirice).
Thursday Tomato spaghetti squash with burrata, and also regular pasta as well for options. Sometimes the kids just want regular pasta so I might do both, since I am using good quality store bought tomato sauce, this is relatively easy. The burrata really adds a layer of creaminess and deliciousness!
Friday Lazy pesto salmon with fall slaw and grilled broccolinis. The salmon here is super easy, I might cook it as recipe attached but just with the pesto, no veggies. It will pair nicely with the salad and my kids always love roasted broccolini (which I toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and cook int he oven for 20-25 min at 400F).
Saturday Roasted veggies farro salad with chickpea and tofu cubes. I just feel like making a loaded veggies meal, which is perfect here, maybe some crispy chickpeas and/or tofu with it, to add some proteins!
