I am in Dallas as you read this, so forgive me if I’m not quite as present on Instagram as usual. It’s not every day that my daughter graduates from college! My husband and I are beaming with pride as we celebrate her and her achievement with our extended family. I’ll be back soon, but I haven’t forgotten this week’s dinner planner:
Memorial Day Weekend: There are a ton of yummy early summer and grilling recipes on my site and in my cookbook, but here are a few possibilities for your memorial day weekend:
Here’s what you can do ahead:
Cut up cauliflower into florets
Wash/dry greens/lettuce and herbs
Make salad dressings and smoky red pepper sauce
Salt your chicken when you get home from the market
Blanch green beans
Make turkey burgers up to the point of cooking and refrigerate, covered
Wash, dry and cut the vegetables for grilling and refrigerate them (you can even grill them a few hours in advance and keep them at room temperature)
You can prep the entire cherry tomato salad in advance: wash and dry the lettuces, toast the almonds, make the dressing and roast the cherry tomatoes ahead and bring them to room temp before eating (just save all the oil used to roast them because it’s part of the dressing.)
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!
