My sister’s family is arriving today for a week!  Sadly, my sister got sick and can’t travel, but we are thrilled to have her husband and kids visit with us.  For all my monthly online cooking class students, I just filmed the August class yesterday and it is in the editing process now.  I hope to have it to you by the end of this coming week!  If you give me an hour a month, I can teach you a lot about how to cook and eat more healthfully and turn you into a better, more confident and more efficient cook.  An hour a month!!!  Plus, I changed the structure of my subscription model – join monthly and you will have access to the ENTIRE library of classes and recipes.  Note – I’ve been teaching online monthly for many years! 

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: One pot farro primavera, fresh green salad

Tuesday: Spicy peach skillet chicken from QTQ, steamed rice, grilled zucchini

Wednesday: Poblano potato-leek soup (this can be served cold or room temp!), Mexican chopped salad

Thursday: Shrimp and melon “ceviche” (multiply this to serve as a main dish and serve with large lettuce leaves), if you need something extra, I love the idea of a baking sheet of simple nachos!

Friday: curried chicken salad on lettuce cups, grated carrot salad with avocado (I know a lot of you are battling hot temps and are looking for no-cook dinners!)

Saturday brunch: avocado chocolate pudding topped with hemp seeds, berries and coconut flakes

Sunday: Grilled fish tacos or chipotle cauliflower tacos, Mexican corn off the cob, and /or cilantro-lime slaw


Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you: 


Wash greens 

Make salad dressing


Char poblanos, peel, deseed, and chop

Chop leeks and onion for soup


Cook chicken for curried salad or use a rotisserie chicken


Make avocado chocolate pudding
