I am so excited for my daughters to come home from college this week! We’ll celebrate Hanukkah with latkes and such and then I might try to make them again in Utah, but we’ll see. I have my last book events for 2017 lined up in Malibu at Room at the Beach on Saturday 12/09 from 1:00 to 2:30 and at MILK Boutique on Wednesday 12/13 from 1:00 to 4:00. I’ll also be at Dolly’s Bookstore in Park City on Thursday 12/21 from 6:30 to 8:00pm. I can’t wait to see you all!
Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Wednesday: veggie fried rice with egg
Saturday lunch: rustic butternut squash soup with fennel and wild rice
Here’s what you can do ahead of time if you need to:
Make salad dressings
Wash lettuce, greens and herbs
Make raw cauliflower-rice or buy it
Make stock and freeze
You can prep all of the vegetables for the maple-mustard roasted vegetable recipe ahead of time (wait until Tuesday to cut the onion if you don’t want your refrigerator to smell like onion), cover and put in the refrigerator
Cook rice for fried rice and store in the refrigerator (you want it to be cold when you make the recipe)
Make the salsa verde for tomorrow
You could even make the braised lentils for tomorrow if you want to save time
Make the brisket today and re-heat for tomorrow (I actually think it tastes even better the next day).
Here is a link to all my previous dinner planners.
