I know it's been a while since I did a meal plan Monday, but better late than never, right?! This meal plan is full of veggies and all kinds of goodness (BBQ, a peanut Thai sauce, and some tacos--three of my favorite things, at least), and I think you'll really enjoy it.
Speaking of vegetables, my dad came over and tilled up a garden in my backyard this weekend, which I'll probably be writing about soon because... I'm so excited! Of course, we only got the garden going after a lovely Mother's Day brunch full of brioche french toast with creme patisserie and caramelized bananas. I hope you got to share a "sweet" day with your mama, too!
Coming later this week: homemade spaghettios in abundance and the story of a little girl who stubbed her toe and lost some dogs (and some bets at the racetrack, for that matter).
monday: chopped thai chicken salad
recipe from pinch of yum.
This is so good! I would definitely only use half a head of lettuce next time, and I would certainly double the dressing (I love extra sauce with everything). I also just used a firm, but still pretty ripe mango in place of the green papaya, and it was delicious!
tuesday: slow cooker short rib tacos with salted lime cabbage
recipe from how sweet it is.
These short rib tacos are also delicious. I think that queso fresco could be turned into a queso sauce instead, but it was really good. Also, short ribs don't feed a lot of people (I made maybe 3 servings), so keep that in mind when making this!
wednesday: smoky bbq tofu bowl
recipe here, on words & whisks!
This is a really easy and delicious way to throw a meatless meal into your week. Don't skimp on the cheddar cheese, though!
Well, hey, not exciting and no picture to go with it... but I get bonus points for being honest, right? : )
p.s. It's strawberry season. Get yourself some fresh ones, top with some homemade vanilla whipped cream, and have them for breakfast. You won't regret it.
