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!
I’m feeling a little ahead of the curve this week since I’m releasing this meal plan while on a weekend getaway with my honey. It’s been my personal tradition that every February I must leave winter in Chicago and go find some warmth and sunshine in California. I’m hoping for sun but even if it’s raining it’ll still be a lot warmer than 28! I’ll be letting loose some this weekend so I’m planning ahead for some light and fresh meals for next week. Here’s to a new month which puts us closer to summer!
MONDAY: Paleo Breakfast Burrito Bowl
I’m a total breakfast for dinner girl and this bowl looks amazing to make any time of day! This would also be a great meal prep meal.
TUESDAY: Smokey Paprika Fish Tacos with Apple Slaw
I love fish tacos and these look simple and delicious plus i love the addition to apple in the slaw. This is also easy to make as a bowl if you aren’t eating tortillas.
WEDNESDAY: Thai Curry Noodle Soup (Whole30)
I saw Carmen post this when she took over the whole30recipes page and t looked delish!
FRIDAY: Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Scallion & Lime
I’m a sucker for braised chicken thighs and a whole head of garlic! Serve with rice or cauliflower rice and a side salad.
Another week of winter down and how many more to go? It’s that time of year when spring fashions are popping up everywhere while the current midwest temps are producing inches of snow fall…it’s really such a tease. Well, if we must be stuck inside we might as well be eating some beautiful colorful food while we dream of spring!
See you in the kitchen!
