I hope you are enjoying the last bits of summer! I know some kids are already back in school and lots of kids are heading back to college. So much transition is in the air! We had a lovely week on Long Island but now it’s time to bring Mr. Picky back to college. It’s always a bittersweet time. Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Panzanella with chickpeas, tomato vinaigrette and parmesan croutons (this is a light meal which contains protein, but if you need more, you can add additional food like the zucchini-leek soup from QTQ or a snack board with olives, cheese and nuts.
Wednesday: veggie stuffed grilled portobello mushrooms from QTQ
Friday: Summer Squash and Basil Pasta from Healthyish (this would be great with shrimp!)
Saturday brunch: Green shakshuka with fresh bread, fresh fruit
Sunday: quinoa salad with cherries, almonds, celery and pecorino, with grilled chicken – use this method
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Make parmesan croutons and tomato dressing for panzanella
Measure seasoning for tacos
Measure seasoning for sheet pan chicken
Make everyday salad dressing
Grate cabbage and carrot for slaw
Make filling for portobello mushrooms
Chop vegetables for shakshuka
