Recipes for Days (#1)

Do you ever get tired of coming up with something for dinner? I do. The Covid situation has pushed me into new realms, there isn’t a recipe that I shy away from these days. I am not a “professional” meal planner, but I do like to eat good food. Putting together a plan for the week makes things easier, maybe it will provide you with a little inspiration. We are going pescatarian for January, so all of the recipes will be veggie with fish or shrimp added to some dishes. Also, the links will open in a new window, these are not my recipes. Happy eating.

Day 1 Note — This is my go to breakfast waffle, four cups of vegetables fills you up. I skip the cream cheese “frosting” and use butter and maple syrup. This week it was dinner.

Day 2 Note — Let me just preface this one by saying that this was absolutely delicious. I used a dollop of sour cream instead of heavy cream, the pesto added a richness to the flavor. The pesto recipe made quite a bit, you might add half, then taste it. Also, when I pulled it out of the oven, I did not need to add the 1/2 cup of broth. I did not include the mushrooms (allergic), I pan-seared scallops at the very end and placed on top.

Day 3 Note — I made a brown sauce over the weekend to make it a quick meal. I try to use fresh broccoli, but these days I’ve been using frozen broccoli to make this a super easy meal. Add some thin sliced carrots and any other vegetables to really work that rainbow.

Day 4 Note — I love making tacos. Using this recipe, I made tacos with all of the fixings (onion, lettuce, corn, grated cheese, sour cream, etc.), along with a side of black beans. Yum.

Day 5 Note — Super simple—use a Thin + Crispy Whole Wheat Pizza Crust (from the store) or make your own. Toppings of your choosing, don’t be afraid to pile them on.

Salad: lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, sunflower seeds and an orange cut into bite size pieces, toss with balsamic and oil.

Day 6 — This is a new one for me, I’ll let you know how it goes when Day 6 comes along.

Happy eating!
