You guys, I still haven’t planned my Easter menu and it’s Friday night! It’s been a full week around here but two things are certain, there will be lamb and there will be carrot cake. These are my two must haves and everything else is up for grabs. Off the top of my head I’m thinking deviled eggs to start, a, herb crusted rack of lamb, side salad with spring veggies like carrots, peas and radishes with a ton of fresh herbs, something with asparagus and lastly my absolute favorite gluten free carrot cake recipe from Danielle Walker’s Celebrations Cookbook. I make mine with a maple sweetened whipped goat cheese frosting that I could eat all on it’s own. I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend with your friends or family!
MONDAY: Kimchi Braised Chicken Thighs
I love Kimchi and Chicken so this was a no brainer! Serve with cauliflower rice, braised greens or rice.
TUESDAY: Citrusy Grilled Fish Tacos with Citrus Slaw and Orange Cashew Sauce
I’m all about a fish taco but the orange cashew sauce is what drew me in!
WEDNESDAY: Peruvian Inspired Whole Roasted Chicken with Tangy Green Sauce
FRIDAY: Instant Pot Arroz Con Pollo
This recipe looks fantastic!
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.
