Early March Meal Plan

Although I am likely waiting for someone to reheat me a bowl of defrosted chili right now, I’m hoping you are cooking up a little storm as we barrel through the rest of winter. My eyes are on the prize of spring; I’m already allowing myself to daydream about asparagus, peas, ramps, and the like. 
But meanwhile, there is always a little cooking pang when we say goodbye to any season, even winter. So while we’re still in it, let’s dig right into the cold weather dishes that will soon be put on the proverbial shelf for months. I can wait a little longer for Spring Vegetable Salad and Spring Ramp and Pea Risotto.
So, let’s make the most of those last weeks of cold weather, with extra helpings of all things baked and bubbling and cheesy and comforting.

Juicy, tender dark meat seared, drizzled with garlic butter, and roasted in the oven is one of the easiest ways possible to create a simple dinner. Serve these with Fully Loaded Spinach Salad with Bacon and Blue Cheese, Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad with Anchovy Vinaigrette, or couscous.

If you like pulled pork and you like lamb, then this is the best of both worlds. Pile it high on a bun, maybe top it with some Sriracha Mayo or some pickled onions. A side of Creamy Brussels Sprouts Slaw would be just the thing.

A delicious, deeply flavored, bourbon-infused marinade injects this tender pork loin with tons of flavor. Round out the meal with Sesame-Honey Quinoa and Carrot Salad with Sliced Avocado or Romaine and Slivered Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing.

One of the world's greatest comfort foods . . . and this recipe has a little twist to keep the chicken crispy! Make spaghetti to go with and decide on a salad, such as Baby Romaine, Chickpea, and Root Vegetable Salad with Slightly Spicy Dressing or Fennel and Endive Salad.

The delicate texture of fresh pasta is well-matched with a light creamy sauce and some crisp, tender shrimp. You could match this up with sautéed kale, broccoli rabe, or Simple Sautéed Garlic Broccoli.

I think we all need a little fun right now, don’t you? A mix of milk chocolate chips, tiny marshmallows, and itty bitty graham squares turns haystacks into a s'mores-inspired cookie.
