Don’t waste a single, precious second of your weekend by wondering what to have for dinner. We’ve put together a *chef’s kiss* menu for every sign of the Zodiac that you’ll absolutely love.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As a fire sign, Aries is naturally drawn toward anything cooked over an open flame. Grill your favorite protein along with a selection of vegetables. Keep the seasoning simple–olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper is all you really need. Don’t default to burgers, but mix things up with grilled chicken and peppers, salmon with broccoli, or halloumi and summer squash.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus is already pretty comfortable in the kitchen, so we’re going to go a little more advanced. With your love of the finer things in life, plus your deep connection to the Earth, prepare a hearty Moroccan tagine. This traditional casserole-style dish is rich with chickpeas, vegetables, and spices. You can make it vegetarian or try chicken or lamb.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Gemini is fickle. Your favorite meal probably changes all the time, so instead of making one main dish, create your own tapas bar at home! Make a couple of small side dishes along with a charcuterie board with your favorite meats, cheeses, fruits, olives, crackers… you get the idea. You can graze to your heart’s content without getting bored.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Nothing beats the comfort of home cooking, does it? Dust off your family’s recipe book, or start a new tradition with your own family tonight. Rich, comforting dishes such as from-scratch mac & cheese are sure to be a big hit. Simple, comforting food made with real ingredients is so much better than take-out.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo likes it hot! Depending on your palate, consider making your own Nashville hot chicken–it’s easier than you think. Or, if fried chicken isn’t your style, look into a spicy noodle dish. All you really need is soy sauce, sriracha, and red pepper flakes to turn boring stir-fry into a flavor sensation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
One-pan meals are the way to go for Virgo. Who wants to spend their night washing dishes? With a single sheet tray, a good chef’s knife, and a cutting board, you can prepare a huge variety of dishes. Individual meatloaf medallions with roasted potatoes and vegetables? Done! Honey-glazed chicken thighs with sweet potatoes? Yes, please! Honestly, pick a protein, a starch, and a couple of vegetables, and you’ve got a great meal cooked on a single pan.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
As we know, Libra is all about balance. And luckily enough, so is Chinese cuisine. Real Chinese food–not the kind you get from a mall kiosk–often blends tastes to create a harmony of sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy. Look up an authentic recipe for your favorite take-out dish and try making it at home tonight.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
One word, Scorpio: Pizza. But not just any pizza. No, you’re going to make this yourself–from scratch. Pizza dough is surprisingly easy to make at home. If you’ve been curious about baking but haven’t yet taken the plunge, this is a great starting point. A little sauce, a lot of good mozzarella, and your favorite toppings. It’s gonna change your life.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
If you can’t travel the world, then bring the world to your table! Pick two favorite cuisines–Thai and Greek? Mexican and Mediterranean?–and try your own fusion dish. Kimchi tacos are surprisingly tasty, but the only real limit is your imagination. Have fun and explore your creativity in the kitchen tonight.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, you don’t need to be a classically trained chef to make a delicious meal. And you don’t need fancy ingredients to cook something delicious. A simple, classic pasta dish like spaghetti bolognese or even good ol’ baked ziti is a good choice for tonight’s dinner. Throw together a simple salad on the side. Make enough for leftovers for the rest of the weekend!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius has always been a little… different. You don’t really conform to society’s expectations, even when it comes to dinner! Flip things around and have breakfast for dinner tonight. Pancakes or French toast, eggs, bacon–the whole nine yards. Indulge with some good cultured butter and real maple syrup, if you can get it.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces has a natural affinity for water–and the things that live in it. If you haven’t had sushi recently, you’re probably craving it right now. Making your own sushi at home is a total game-changer. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but fire up a couple of YouTube videos and give it your best shot. Even if it’s not perfect, it’ll still taste good.
