I had a lovely, lovely week with my family on Long Island. Easter was simple but just right. We had a delightful meal that we didn’t work too hard to pull together, and we enjoyed lots of spring veggies and the like. It was a nice break for me as well, but I am back to regularly scheduled programming. I will be doing my Instagram LIVE on Monday at 5:00 pm. I’ll see if I can get Hubs to join me. My newest bootcamp launched this past week and I am beyond excited with the fabulous group who decided to join me. If you are interested in participating in future bootcamps, make sure you are subscribed to my website so you’re the first to hear. In May I am repeating Entertaining with Ease and I may also repeat Plant-Based 2.0! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Poblano potato leek soup, quesadillas (swap avocados for cheese to make it vegan or your favorite vegan cheese) with leftover roasted or sauteed veggies
Wednesday: Not–Fried Rice – Mexican version (based on this recipe but sub cilantro for basil), with leftover rice and chicken taco meat, kale or cabbage, bell peppers, onions and whatever veggies you want to get rid of
Friday: Spaghetti squash with pesto and shrimp, arugula salad with everyday salad dressing #1 (Click here to cook spaghetti squash; click here for a basil-parsley pesto recipe; click here for a kale pesto recipe) I’ll saute the shrimp in a skillet with olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper, which takes a few minutes on each side.
Sunday: Grilled skirt steak, roasted cauliflower, sautéed greens, romesco sauce. (I might make a little rice to go with it all. If you’re plant based, add some cooked legumes like white beans to your sauteed greens.)
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Roast and peel poblano peppers
Make salad dressings
Prep slaw ingredients
Make cheese sauce
Cut jicama and mango
Roast spaghetti squash
Make marinade for steak
Wash and hull strawberries
