Weekly meal plan
Aug 16 2020
It is so hot here in California.... When heat gets like this, I know that school is about to start... It feels like our summer only begins in August and ends in October... Which I don't complain about about because being from Belgium, where it gets, cold, gloomy and drizzling and raining in September I like this much better... Anyway, still in quarantine, still no in person school on the horizon... Not sure what fall will be like, but I know that cooking takes my mind off things, se her tis what's next week meal plan looks like!
Monday: Cleaned up zucchini corn chowder. This is a really delicious and easy dinner.... I like starting the week with something super easy and fast to cook!
Tuesday: 3 beans chili. This will be done in the slow cooker and kids love it, especially with the guacamole, chips and cheese.... I will do a vegetarian version instead of the one linked and just omit the turkey and add more beans.
Wednesday: Turkey lettuce cups and cucumber salad. Perfect for a weeknight.... trying to get the kids in some kind of a routine, since 2 out of my 3 kids start school next Monday....
Thursday: Miso salmon and loads of simply roasted veggies with brown rice. I like making tons of veggies and offer it to the kids to get them used to it. I will add soy sauce and cilantro to the veggies and toss it all together. I think al the flavor will work great together here!
Friday: Chicken milanese. I can even prep this in advance and just cook the chicken last minute. This pairs well with an arugula salad and I might make some brown rice pasta with cherry tomatoes, the kids will like that as well.I might even try an eggplant version and see how it goes, stay tuned!
Saturday: Goat puffs with tomato salad. Tomatoes are still in full season now and so yummy that I want to make the most of it!! Plus this is really easy to prepare and is absolutely delicious!!
Sunday: Spaghetti and zoodles Caprese al pesto. Easy for a Sunday night dinner and light enough for me with the zoodles option.
