I want to just come right out and thank my family for knowing these times require patience, teamwork, and a shift in expectations. I want to thank my readers, students, social media followers, and community members for showing up here, on my social accounts, to my Instagram lives, and via email with a positive attitude, a generous heart, and the encouraging words that have been keeping me hopeful and my spirits lifted. Of course, we still pray for all those who work in essential industries like healthcare, grocery stores, and more. Thank you!
This Monday will complete 3 weeks of daily Instagram lives at 12 pm PST. I post the videos on IGTV and I am trying to post them all to Facebook as well, but I am behind because uploading videos takes a long time. I am committed to continuing for as long as I am providing value. Tuesday I am doing a FREE live webinar at 9:00 am PST. If you subscribe to my website, you received information about it. You can register here if you’re interested.
Tuesday for my IG live, I am cooking with my friend and supermodel, Molly Sims. Should be fun! Thursday at 10 am PST I am doing an AMA on Reddit. And next Friday I will film the April online cooking class!! This would never happen if I had toddlers at home. Props to all you parents who are working from home AND taking care of your children. I bow down to you. Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Spring green pasta with asparagus and peas
Passover Seders Wednesday and Thursday: See this post and this post for some menu ideas. This year we are keeping it REALLY simple, since it’s just the five of us. No big family seder, so no big dinner. A few years ago I made brisket, a roasted vegetable platter, perfect spring salad, sweet potato casserole(using coconut instead of corn flakes), matzoh lasagne with vegetables, baked chicken with artichokes and capers, halibut with chermoula, maztoh ball soup, Passover popovers, fruit platter, coconut macaroons, fallen chocolate cake, lemon ice torte, cashew cheesecake, strawberry-rhubarb sauce and carrot banana cake (using this recipe). I told my family to pick one dessert and they picked the Lemon Ice Torte from 1991.
Saturday brunch: Greek nachos (p. 65) from my cookbook (use matzoh crackers to make these passover compliant
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Wash greens and vegetables
Make salad dressings
Make and freeze desserts
