I am visiting my older daughter in Dallas for a nice mother-daughter weekend!  I hope you all have a lovely Easter if you are celebrating.  If you are looking for some Easter menu inspiration, check out last week’s dinner planner!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:


Meatless Monday: California Nicoise salad (with or without the tuna), check out this post for what to do with all the leftover eggs after Easter.

Tuesday: Instant Pot chicken tinga p. 199 served with baked pinto bean tostadas p. 277 from Quicker than Quick

Wednesday: Moroccan vegetable soup

Thursday: roasted fish with chickpea and deconstructed pesto salad (you can replace the tomatoes with artichoke hearts, either from a jar or frozen/defrosted and roasted at 400 degrees for 20 minutes with olive oil, salt and pepper). 

Friday: grilled lemon herb chicken with mint drizzle, simple arugula salad with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper (add some nuts, cheese, or avocado if you want a little more substance)

Saturday brunch: savory muffins with roasted red pepper, spinach, and feta

Sunday: Turkey and brown rice stuffed bell peppers, clean-out-the-fridge green salad


Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you: 


Wash greens

Make salad dressings

Blanch green beans and shock in ice water


Make tostadas and store in a sealed container at room temp after they have cooled

Make stock if using homemade


Cook garbanzo beans if making from scratch


Make mint drizzle


Make savory muffins


Make turkey filling for peppers
