Meal Plan: September 17


Life update: I moved. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Boston metrowest area to the historical neighborhood, Beacon Hill. 

You might be wondering, 'Why is some internet food writer telling me about her move?' I have a new kitchen, without a dishwasher, and am mostly dining solo.  

These changes also mean I'm making wicked easy foods, with a balance between healthy & comforting. I know I'm not the only one who is crazy-busy lately.

I highly recommend you try the biscuits (pictured left) this weekend. It's the kind of comfort food I've been craving all week, plus it's a personal favorite recipe.

MONDAY Broccoli & Cauliflower Bites with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
By @woon.heng

These flavorful fritters are a wonderful way to eat vegetables. Snack on them as is, or serve them on a bed of rice. Don't forget the sweet chili sauce! It makes the dish.


TUESDAY Eggplant & Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta & Ricotta
By @anna_s_table

Silky sautéed eggplant and tart sun-dried tomatoes are tossed with ricotta and spices to make a creamy sauce to serve over your favorite kind of pasta. 


WEDNESDAY Salmon en Croûte & Yam Mash
By @fitsoulkitchen

I'm obsessed with this salmon recipe! It sounds like something at a restaurant, but the reality is, it's straightforward & simple. This version phyllo dough is wrapped around salmon topped with creamed spinach and chopped tomatoes before it's baked, but you can try the same technique with a different filling like pesto or ricotta. The end result is a tender, flavorful filet inside a crispy exterior. 


THURSDAY Apple Walnut Salad with Herbed Lemon Dressing
By @nyssas_kitchen

When it comes to making a killer salad, it's all in the dressing. This simple apple, fennel and walnut salad is topped with an herbaceous dressing that is a mixture of spicy mustard, zesty lemon, and sweet maple syrup. Before serving, sprinkle the salad with crumbled feta & fresh herbs. Enjoy this with warm bread on the side.


WEEKEND BONUS Caramelized Vidalia Onion Biscuits with Bourbon Butter
By @thefeedfeed

It has come to my attention that many people are unaware that Vidalia onions do not grow year round. In fact, they are in season from late April until mid September. In honor of the season coming to a close, I urge you to bake a batch of caramelized onion biscuits. It's one of my personal favorite recipes, and a highly requested side dish in my household. 

Pro tip: Freeze your extra dough! It will come in handy, I promise.
