Friends, it is Friday again, and while it is nice to know we can rely on Fridays, it seems like they are coming more quickly than they used to! And since it’s Friday, it’s time for our weekly meal plan post!
This week, we are seriously craving some fall comfort foods, and you’ll see it in our menu plan. Shall we get to it? Yes, let’s.
It’s Meal Plan Time, Friends!
This week, the Divas turn to our Instant Pots, to our ovens, and to our ovens as we are more certain cooler weather is just around the corner, even if some of us can’t quite see it yet!
We are bringing you a comforting soup, a fancy yet easy to make pork roulade, delicious beef carnitas for stuffing into tacos, burritos or topping nachos, a salmon burger, a wonderful naturally gluten free pizza with a hashbrown crust, and 2 kinds of cookies, one more for the adults and one for the kids. Here we go!
Instant Pot Split Pea Soup with Ham
Is there anything more warming or comforting that split pea soup? I think not. If you are vegan or want to serve this for Meatless Monday, simply use vegetable stock and a few drops of liquid smoke in place of the hamhock. Comforting goodness from Cheryl of Pook's Pantry!
Rosemary Pesto Pork Roulade
Roulades always look really fancy to serve, so even a weeknight meal becomes a special occasion. And Kirsten from Comfortably Domestic gives us great instructions so we can do it too! I love the flavor combination here and the stuffing ingredients. Yes, indeed!
Instant Pot Beef Carnitas
Moist and succulent carnitas flavored with orange and cinnamon can be a part of so many meals. This recipe makes a ton, so you can make quesadillas, tacos, burritos, top a taco salad--the choices are plentiful.
The process does take a bit of time, so consider making a big pot of these when you have some time on the weekend and then using them throughout the week as an easy component for a weeknight meal.
Classic Salmon Burgers
Y'all, Erin has grilled us up a seafood feast in the form of these salmon burgers. Flavored with lemon zest and spices and bound with some egg and panko bread crumbs, these salmon burgers can sit on a bun or get tucked into a wrap or even a lettuce wrap if you're watching your carbs. The yum I have come to expect from The Speckled Palate. Yes.
Patatas Bravas Hash Brown Crust Pizza | Pook's Pantry Recipe Blog
It's pretty genius to make a naturally gluten-free pizza crust with hashbrowns, right?! Top yours the way Cheryl did, or use it as a base for your favorite toppings. She gives lots of tips for success, so be sure to read the post carefully. Enjoy!
Ghoriba Bahla Recipe | Moroccan "Silly" Shortbread Cookies
This ghoriba bahla recipe is just sweet enough, super crunchy and crumbly and studded with ground fried almonds and toasted sesame seeds. I dare you to eat just one!
Mint Smores Bars
Just the title, alone, y'all. If you're a fan of mint and smores, this is your Holy Grail dessert. Seriously.
And there you have it. So much deliciousness, so little time!
But we do hope at least some of these recipes will find their way into your weekly meal plan and then maybe into regular rotation.
Please let us know what you decide to make and how it turned out. We love to hear how we are helping you or how we can better help you plan your weekly menus.
Thank you for spending some time with the Divas today. Take care, and have a lovely day.
