  • Seasonal Meal Planning: Spring

    It's that time again!
    It's been 3 months since I began cooking dinners according to my Winter seasonal meal plan. You can search this forum for "Seasonal" to find that and my plan for Fall. Here's my 14-day Spring dinner menu, organized by animal (I mix up the order as I feel like it). Links are to inspiration recipes (which are not necessarily primal! I adapt).

    taco beef with radish and avocado salsa
    spaghetti squash with meaty tomato sauce
    meatballs and fried cabbage
    Italian wedding soup
    beef fried "rice"

    tom kha gai
    chicken Cobb salad

    crockpot pulled pork with mustard sauce and slaw
    leftovers of above

    Seafood/no central meat
    Seared salmon with spinach in roasted poblano cream sauce
    cream of asparagus soup
    BLT benedict with mozzerella and avocado
    pan-fried shrimp with green curry cashew sauce & sesame carrot salad
