It’s only a few more days until it’s officially Spring! It’s currently raining but 60 degrees and I’m not complaining. Nova has been asking for an umbrella of her own and so we found the perfect flower printed pint sized umbrella at Target yesterday and she keeps asking “when is it going to rain so I can use my umbrella?” Her positive spin on things such as the rain is so inspiring and challenging all at the same time. This week we have Nathan’s sister coming to visit with her two kids and so I’m looking for meals we can all enjoy together.
MONDAY: Turkey & Zucchini Burgers with Green Onion & Cumin
This recipe is from Yotam Ottolenghi’s cookbook Jerusalem which is one of my absolute favs! I was able to find the recipe online as well so you can enjoy it too! These are bunless mini burgers and they are so delicious! You can sub in a mayo or dairy free yogurt for the sauce if you need to keep them dairy free.
TUESDAY: Grilled Chicken Street Tacos
I’m ready to fire up my grill and make these simple chicken tacos with pico! For maximum flavor marinade over night.
THURSDAY: Roasted Squash with Kale Pipian & Salmon
This salad looks so delicious! I’m going to roast some salmon to go with this salad. The Kale pesto will be perfect on both.
FRIDAY: Chicken & Shrimp Laap
I love this recipe! It’s super simple to pull together and fun to eat in lettuce cups.
Well this week got away from me quickly! Looking at the week ahead it looks like those Spring time temps might be coming, fingers crossed. It’s been a long winer and we all have cabin fever. Meal planning is a great way to spice things up and transport your tastebuds to warmer climates. And after looking through past recipes and new ones that I’ve bookmarked it’s clear I’m in a southeast Asian mood. I just love the bold flavors and use of fresh herbs that these recipes offer. Here’s to a new week!
MONDAY: Lemongrass Chicken Salad
I’m over these flavors and Alex always knows how to bring it!
TUESDAY: Pollo Pibil Tacos (Chicken Pibil)
I’ve been drooling over this recipe for a while and I can’t wait to make it.
THURSDAY: Thai Basil Beef Stir fry
I could eat this one weekly!
FRIDAY: Coconut Poached Salmon Curry
This is a favorite of mine and it’s been a minute since I’ve made it. It’s also super quick!
How is it the end of February!? So, good news, bad news… we are getting out of the cold and headed to LA at the end of the week and also have some other weeknight plans this so I’m not sure how many demo’s will get in but the good news is that I love you guys and I’ll still make a menu plan even though I won’t be using it. I’m going to stick with tried and true recipes so you know I’m not leading you astray!
MONDAY: Bulgogi Beef Sushi Rolls
Whenever iheartumami posts anything I freak out and need to make it! This is no exception!
TUESDAY: Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs for Tacos!
This recipes looks so good and super versatile. I’m going to serve these up in tacos but you could also make them for lettuce cups or cauliflower rice.
WEDNESDAY: Chipotle Turkey Burgers
I don’t like turkey burgers but I LOVE these! Make sure to get the dark meat.
THURSDAY: Braised Salmon with Mushroom Cream Sauce
This recipe is everything you want. Creamy without the dairy and super satisfying with a side of caulirice.
