The Fresh Letter Menu for September 16, 2022
Oh so speedy suppers.
How’s it going in your kitchen? I feel like a broken record when I say mine’s been incredibly busy lately. I’ve had a few exciting brand partnerships come through, have been doing a little recipe testing for a friend’s cookbook, and catered an event for the first time since 2020 this past week. I’m exhausted but loving every moment of it.
Can I level with you for a moment? Yes? Okay, great. Here’s what dinner’s looked like for the past 5 days:
Sunday: Instant ramen Monday: Takeout burrito bowls Tuesday: PB&J Wednesday: Big snacks Thursday: Scrambled eggs and an English muffin
Cooking elaborate meals for myself and my family has clearly not been a priority this week. And that’s completely fine, life happens, I’ll get back into it. In light of this busy season, this week’s Fresh Letter menu features dishes I lean on when I need to put dinner on the table without much thought, muss, fuss, etc.
But before we dive in, if you’re in the same busy boat that I’m in, a reminder that meal prep can be a great tool to get dinner on the table sans decision fatigue. Our ebook Meal Prep Made Simple is in its last few weeks of the preorder period. Snag it now while the preorder goodies (a meal prep class discount and our favorite playlists for making the time pass in the kitchen in a flash )are still available.
Okay, let’s chat quick and easy meals:
Pan Seared Salmon with Soy Mustard Glaze (GFO) Seared salmon is my back pocket dinner main. I make it around once every two weeks when things are especially hectic because it comes together in just around 10 minutes. If I’m in a huge rush, I skip the sauce and keep it extra simple. (Use GF soy sauce.)
