IDCO Weekly Meal Plan + Shopping List

Hello + Happy Monday! It seems like this week, we are all at different stages of self-isolation. Some of us are back at work and back to a semi-normal routine, while still more of us are working from home and only venturing out for short periods of time. While everything is still a little off-balance and up in the air, I hope these weekly menus and grocery lists are one more thing you can take off your mental to-do list. 

As for us, we are still working from home. Food-wise, that means more baking, more cooked lunches, and more time to test new recipes! This week’s lineup is not to be missed. You’ll find

 

 

weeknight menu favorites

 

 

For us, a weeknight meal means ready in under an hour, not too indulgent, and really good. All of these check those boxes + make great lunch leftovers if you’re into that.

Easy Creamy Spinach Stuffed Salmon

Quarantine has given me a good opportunity to try out recipes I usually wouldn’t. I was not a huge fan of salmon with cream type sauces until this recipe. So good and don’t forget the hot sauce! I am serving with an arugula salad and lemon-y orzo.

Greek Chicken Chopped Salad with Lemon Tahini Vinaigrette

As soon as I saw this recipe post this week, I filed under “making immediately.” We will be testing this one together, but I’ve never had any recipe from Halfbaked Harvest that wasn’t delicious.

Korean BBQ Style Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps

These will make you a lettuce wrap convert. It’s the perfect crunch with the cauliflower texture.

Farro + White Bean Veggie Burger

I am a burger fiend, truly. When I find a veggie burger that I look forward to as much as one made with meat, I know I have a winner.

Sheet Pan Broccolini Pizza

Three words: Sheet. Pan. Pizza.

 

 

this week’s brunch recipe

 

 

These recipes are made for slow Saturday mornings + pairing well with a bloody mary is a requirement.

 

Creamy Brioche + Egg Bake

I’m all about an all-in-one brunch bake. Less time, fewer dishes, more time to sip coffee on the couch.

 

 

something sweet

 

 

After a long week, nothing is better than enjoying a treat, especially if you are able to make it with friends or kids.

Homemade Brioche 

This week, I’m mixing it up a little and working on my bread skills. I thought it would be the perfect time to try brioche since I’ll be needing some for the brunch bake! If you aren’t into baking, skip this part and pick out some brioche at the store!

 

 

a little something extra

 

 

Since we can’t go out for happy hour or brunch, we are making Friday afternoon cocktails a weekly tradition.

Vermontucky Lemonade

This is the grown-up lemonade of my dreams. You’ll find me sipping one of these on the porch swing every day around 5. 

 

I hope these recipes inspire you this week. Let us know what you think about them!
