Hello, lovelies! I had a great week back teaching classes again. But even better is the quick weekend getaway happening right now in Park City. My son has a long weekend from school, so my daughters decided to meet up with us here. Nothing better for me. I don’t even care that it’s too cold and I have drank more hot chocolate (really it’s cacao-collagen-maca) in the last 24 hours than I usually do in a month. Yippee! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Monday: Middle Eastern Vegetable Soup with Freekeh from my cookbook – this is plenty for my family but if you need something more, you could serve it with avocado toast or a green salad
Tuesday: Ginger Salmon from Kale and Chocolate served with roasted sweet potatoes and carrots
Superbowl Sunday: Here are some of my favorite options:
- Turkey and Black Bean Chili, Vegetable Chili, slow cooker sweet potato and black bean chili, Cornbread, Baked Potatoes and topping bar, Mexican Chopped Salad
- Meatball subs, homemade pizzas, Vegetarian Antipasto Chopped Salad, Mini Lasagne Cupcakes, Italian 7-layer dip
- Taco bar (Ground Beef , barbacoa, slow cooker chicken, and Fish), Refried beans, Cilantro-Lime Slaw, Arroz Verde
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Make all sauces, marinades and dressings
Make all stocks/broths. Freeze anything that won’t get used within 4 days.
Wash salad greens
Cook dried beans unless using canned.
Make rice, if using
Make vegan queso
Prep any veggies (i.e. chop veggies for chopped salad)
Prep any ingredients or recipes for the taco bar
Make any of the chilis
