As I mentioned yesterday, I might start copying Sarah & Jimmy on their nightly meal plans. Last night, I made a quick list of what my meals could look like this week. I think it's already going to get thrown off on Thursday since now I'm going out for Yoga with my girlfriends (which means we'll probably get wine and apps after). That being said, so far so good! Anyway, last night's dish was inspired by Joy the Baker's Roasted Onions that she posted on her instagram last week and has had me craving them ever since.
She was right, my house had THE BEST aroma throughout.
During the last half hour of the roasting process, I sliced purple sweet potatoes into fry-like strands and tossed them with evoo, cayenne, salt, pepper, and paprika. I threw them in the oven which was already at 400 degrees, then after about 15 minutes I tossed them and set them back in for another 10-15.
During the last 15 minutes of the roasting process - I turned on the broiler and put the fish on the top rack. It was drizzled with evoo, lemon, salt, and pepper.
On top of the stove - I cooked the green beans and topped them with a little grass-fed butter and chopped almonds.
The fish got topped with the roasted onions. I made a dipping sauce for the "faux fries": 3 parts yogurt, 2 parts mustard, 1 part mayo, cayenne pepper, salt, and 1 part maple syrup.
The onions were definitely the star of the show here. They were so soft and almost spreadable, just like butter. They have such a sweet texture that I really enjoy (I actually greatly dislike raw onions - cooked is where it's at). I'm also still obsessed with purple sweet potatoes. They are just incredible!
Here's the plan for the rest of the week!
Looks like I need to buy broccoli. Also, I know that my hand writing is HORRENDOUS.
Do you plan out meals?? Do you meal prep on Sunday?! Tell me about it...
Have a great Wednesday! xo
