Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of February 13th
Spice up Meatless Monday with a warm and filling curry dish. This version incorporates one of winter's gems, butternut squash. Each bite overflows with texture and flavor; the best part is that curry leftovers are even better.
Scallops are an elegant, yet quick Valentine's Day dinner option. Take advantage of the Meyer lemon, a lemon that is only in season during the winter. It has a strong citrus flavor that cooks well and dresses up any special meal. We recommend serving your scallops over a bed of angel hair pasta with a glass of white wine.
Pistachio-Parsley Pesto Pasta
Pan-sear flank steak in minutes and serve with onions and beans over a bed of lettuce and crunchy tortilla chips. Choose toppings that you and your family will love, like tomato, queso freso, avocado, and lime. These customizable bowls are sure to please picky eaters and meat-cravers alike.
Rosemary, garlic, red onion, tomatoes, and shrimp give neutral spaghetti squash an unbeatable flavor. For an even faster option, you can use an equal amount of raw zucchini noodles or ribbons in place of the spaghetti squash. For a heartier dinner, serve with green beans.
We add chile-and-honey-spiked pork meatballs to the soup but you could also use shredded rotisserie chicken breasts. Salty, savory miso gives this soup full-bodied flavor. Get ahead on dinner this weekend by doubling the meatball mixture, shaping half into patties, and searing later for Asian-style sliders.
Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to eat cake for breakfast... as if you really need one. These cocoa pancakes have a cream cheese-butter that's just asking to be slathered between each layer. Breakfast in bed just might be the key to your love's heart.
