Meal Plan Monday, June 3rd

Hey there! I have another set of SUPER yummy meals again this week for you all!

As if any of my meals aren’t yummy… Okay, last week I might have messed up a couple of meals. But that’s okay! Learning to become the best home chef I know is going to take some time.

I hope you guys like a lot of flavor because this week I am trying new things and even making my own version of my favorite taco from Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, TX! If you have never been to Torchy’s Taco’s I highly recommend them! If you have never been to Austin, TX I HIGHLY recommend that too!

Okay anyways, here are the meals for this week. Let me know if you like them and what you think!

And as always you can follow along with me on my Instagram page! I’m known as the ShortChef there.


Monday // Pesto Grilled Cheese with Roasted Tomato soup!

I found this recipe idea from a blogger on Instagram. Here is her Website! It looks like she’s got some pretty good recipes on there. I am not using her exact recipe for the grilled cheese and tomato soup but I got the meal inspiration from that idea!

I’ll use some fresh sourdough bread and a few different kinds of cheese for the sandwich. And honestly, I’ll probably just buy some tomato soup, but we’ll see how I am feeling the day of.

Tuesday // Chicken on top of Baked Eggplant with Roasted Veggies and Orzo

I am totally making this recipe up! I am working on challenging my cooking skills in order to get better. Also, I have never tried Eggplant before so here we go!

And, we’ll add some melted cheese on top of whatever I make, because I feel like cheese makes everything better.

Wednesday // Homemade Chicken Fingers, Sweet Potato Fries and Green Beans

For this recipe, I will bread some chicken tenderloins, slice, season and bake my own sweet potatoes and throw some green beans in the mix. I mostly just needed an easy meal to throw in for this week!

Thursday // Greek Rice Bowls

I am stoked to make this meal! Back in Pensacola, we had a Greek restaurant super close to us that we would go to a few times a month. So, needless to say, we are craving some Greek style food.

In this bowl I am going to cook some ground lamb, brown rice, throw in some cucumbers, feta, garlic green beans, roasted chickpeas and a side of naan. I will also make some Tzatziki sauce too! I hope this meal is super yummy. If it is I’ll put the recipe on here!

Friday // Thai Red Curry Shrimp

Okay, I make this recipe pretty frequently for 2 reasons.


2. It is super EASY and QUICK.

The recipe is from my favorite cookbook that I have mentioned before, Cooking for Two by America’s Test Kitchen.

Saturday // “Mr. Orange” Salmon Tacos

This is the taco from one of my favorite restaurants, Torchy’s Tacos! I didn’t find an exact recipe but it seems pretty easy to make. Take a look at the website to see the ingredients! Click Here!

I’ll throw in a Side of Mexican rice and make some of my yummy Guacamole! Too!

The Mexican rice recipe I use I will feature on here in 2 weeks! Stay tuned for a BIG recipe that you are going to love!

Well, folks, that’s all I have here today for Meal Plan Monday. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

Thanks for cooking!
