Weekly meal plan
Aug 9 2020
I cannot believe that school is around the corner! Even if it is virtual classes and zoom calls, it still means meal planning becomes a must for me, being organized saves me so much time and stress! Honestly I do not know how I would do it otherwise.
Another thing I do is that I don't always cook everything from scratch, I like shortcut and buy good quality products so it makes dinner easier. Like for example for the wonton soup, I get the potstickers and broth at the famers market. If I do pesto, sometimes I make it myself and sometimes I buy a really good pesto from Whole foods or Trader Joes...
Monday: Wonton soup, which is perfect for meatless Monday... This super easy soup is full of veggies and since i bought potstickers at the farmers market yesterday with some miso broth , it will be super easy dinner.
Tuesday:Korean bbq beef lettuce cups. This is a variation of my beef korean recipe from eat blog. I use the same sauce to marinate the thin slices of beef, grill them and cut them into small pieces for the lettuce cups. I might make a asian slaw and a cucumber and peanut salad to go with it.
Wednesday: Chicken Slouvakis. I brought this one back from Greece last year and adapted it a little. It has so much flavor and is really easy to make!!
Thursday: Halibut packet with corn and tomatoes. This is the easiest way I know how to make fish. There is almost no cleaning and little mess. If you don't like corn or tomatoes switch them for something else like zucchini, spinach, mushrooms,... If you would rather have salmon than halibut, it works really nicely as well. It is a very easy recipe that can be modified in lots of different ways!
Saturday: Spaghetti with shrimps. This is easy enough for a Saturday and my kids have been asking for it for a while. You simply sauté some garlic and chili flakes with olive oil and 1 large chopped tomato. Add a bit of cooking wine and the shrimps, cook until all the shrimps turn out a soft pink and are cooked through, sprinkle some Italian parsley and toss with spaghetti!
Sunday: DYI Poke bowls bar I loving doing these, I just chop up all the ingredients and place it on the counter and everyone can make their own poke bowl.
