March Week 5 Meal Plan : The New Normal.

With my partner and I both working from home, I noticed some big and small changes in our routines (And martinis consumption). We are now meeting up to eat lunch at the kitchen counter so we can get a break from the dining room table that also serves as office. I am still meal planning on Sundays but have also taken more time to try out new recipes during the evening. Here is what we are planning on eating this week.


Option A

Carrot Meatballs, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Rice

Carrots and leeks keep the meatballs moist and flavorful so I did not see a need for a sauce but I think these could also be delicious serve in marinara sauce. Link to recipe:

Option B

Cold Soba Noodles Salad

I have made this in the past and gave the sauce a couple adjustments. You can also change up the veggies but the green theme matched my need to maintain an optimistic outlook this week. Link to recipe:


There was a mix up in my Instacart order this week so I am now sitting on 2 lbs of ground bison. I never cooked bison before so I thought it was the best time to start!

Option A

Texas Chili

This is bold and full of flavor. I really love the addition of coffee and cocoa powder. Link to recipe:

Option B

Middle Eastern Bison Meatballs with Cilantro-Yogurt Sauce

Lots of spices and freshness in this recipe. It worked beautifully with the bison but could see these meatballs made with beef as well. Link to recipe:


Pizza Dough

More down time allows for more baking. I thought I would get started on mastering the art of pizza dough. This is from Roberta’s in Brooklyn and I must say that after two tries I am a master a it. Link to recipe:
