Weekly Meal Plan
Aug 2 2020
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 grill the asparagus for 5-7 minutes on the barbecue outside just with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Wednesday: Sesame crusted salmon. This is my new video this week and I love it! I dip the salmon in white and black sesame seeds and cook it, it adds so much flavor and a crunch to it that is out of this world! Check out on Wednesday for full video and recipe and if you cannot wait, just DM me and will send it to you beforehand.
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 use 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!
