This week is the beginning of Lent. My mother used to make us give up something for the 40 days of Lent. We thought we were funny by saying we’d give up liver (ugh, she actually made it!) or boiled Brussels sprouts. After a lot of back and forth, my mother would ask us to give up bickering with each other. Ha! Fridays during Lent, I will post a fish or vegetarian/dish.
On another note, I have done an Instagram Live the past few Mondays at 5:00 pm PST. I think that is a good time, so join me if you’re free. We have a lot of fun! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Friday: Spinach and quinoa salad with feta and dill, roasted shrimp (toss peeled and deveined large shrimp with olive oil, salt and pepper and spread out in one layer on a sheet pan. Roast at 400 for 6-8 minutes.)
Saturday Brunch: Tex-Mex frittata corn bread from my book
Sunday: Chicken posole verde with radish, cabbage and avocado garnishes (My son also likes tortilla chips. We are fine eating just this, but a quesadilla or salad is a nice accompaniment if you need something more.)
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Wash and dry all vegetables and herbs
Make salad dressings
Cook black beans, unless using canned
Assemble black bean burgers
Make smoky red pepper sauce
Cut sweet potato into wedges
