I cannot believe that Christmas is about a week away! Yikes! I am both excited and overwhelmed. Excited to spend a week on Long Island with my family, overwhelmed because I don’t have all my holidays gifts ordered or granola for the teachers made. I will not leave the house this weekend until it is all done! Some administrative news:
- Check out the Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet GIVEAWAY that I have going on one Instagram right now. The prizes are valued at $302!
- For my online cooking class students, the December class is UP! Click here to purchase the December class if you are not a subscriber. Click here to see all previous class offerings. Online classes make a great holiday gift. We’ll email the recipient a gift certificate from you!
- Friday, December 21 is the last day that I will be signing cookbooks at Pages in Manhattan Beach. Get your requests in pronto!
In the meantime, we’ve still got to eat. Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Jeweled Rice served with sautéed Swiss chard
Wednesday: Leftover chicken bowls with cooked quinoa (or grain of choice) garnished with shredded green cabbage, avocado, pickled red onion and a drizzle of Homemade Ranch Dressing (dairy-free and vegan adaptable).
Thursday: Chopped Thai Salad from What’s Gaby Cooking
Saturday lunch: Fall Salad with Fig-Balsamic Vinaigrette and Quinoa Brittle (I know this is kind of a fancy lunch, but I have been craving this salad! Omit the quinoa brittle and this is easy-peasy.)
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Wash and prep veggies
Make all marinades, sauces and dressings
Lentil base for Sloppy Joes
Millet (if omitting buns and not using cauli-rice)
Here’s a link to my previous dinner planners.
I have LOVED seeing all your creations of my recipes on Instagram. If you make any of my recipes, please tag me @pamelasalzman #pamelasalzman so I can check them out!
