Weekly Meal Plan
Jul 25 2021
Summer is my favorite time to cook, all the fresh and local produces that we find here in LA are amazing! I always go to the farmers market on Sunday and stock up for the week. It helps local businesses, I get organic, sustainable fruits and veggies and plus I really love the experience of the market....
Monday: Roasted red pepper Gazpacho. It is so hot right now in LA that a cold soup will be perfect for dinner! It takes 5 minutes to blend all the ingredients together and I can add fun toppings and also grill some baguette or pitta bread so kids can dip it in ( whatever works to get them to eat the soup right?)
Tuesday: Sole Piccata and grilled asparagus. I am going to char the asparagus for 5-7 minutes on the grill outside just with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Wednesday: Sesame crusted salmon. I have not had salmon in a while... And I am so craving this super easy summer recipe from the blog! Some coconut rice might be nice here as well and possibly an asian slaw!
Thursday: Zucchini Tart. Feeling like savory tart this week. I mostly always use store bought dough which makes this really easy!
Friday: Sweet corn "farroto". I haven't made that one in a while but since corn is in season and so delicious right now, it will be super yummy! You can use any kind of grain here, I just like the texture of farro mixed in with the corn! I used this recipe from Bon Appétit magazine which is really delicious and easy and I will make sure to post once I make it and tweak it a bit.
Saturday: Tomato Thyme Pudding. Keeping it simple and serving this with a arugula an avocado salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
Sunday: Veggie and Rice Bowls. Family style for Sundays is a good way to go and easy onto chef, right!
