dinner planner | pamela salzman

I have a crazy busy week coming up with classes, deadlines, getting read for my trip to Dallas which will include a class at my friend Lisa’s house and participating in my daughter’s sorority’s mom weekend, annnnnd getting all the desserts prepared in advance for the Passover seders which I will obviously be missing.  Sitting down on the weekend to spend a little time planning the meals for the week is my lifesaver.

If you are celebrating Passover, please check out my post from last year which detailed my Passover seders including my timelines.  Enjoy!

Here’s the dinner planner for this week:

Meatless Monday:  Miso soup (check out this post for a miso soup topping bar), Asian noodle salad

Tuesday:  Fish tacos, avocado, jicama and mango salad

Wednesday:  Grilled lemon-herb chicken with mint drizzle, mixed greens with strawberries, gorgonzola (sub another cheese if you want or omit) and almonds (this recipe, but subbing strawberries for grapes)

Thursday:  Turkey sausages with sautéed cabbage, fennel and onions

Friday:  Passover seder

Saturday:  Passover seder

Sunday:  Matzoh lasagnes (I hope to post these recipes before then.)


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


Make dressing for Asian noodle salad, jicama salad, and salad with gorgonzola

Prep veggies for Asian noodle salad

Make dry rub or marinade for fish (the recipe above gives two options, both of which can be prepped ahead)


Marinate chicken (in the evening)

Make mint drizzle

Prep cabbage and fennel for Thursday


Make marinara sauce for Sunday’s lasagne


Here’s where you can find all previous dinner planners.
