Someone commented on my Instagram feed the other day after I posted cauliflower in three different colors, that winter was her favorite season for produce. Huh. I’ve never thought that before, but there is so much bounty even in winter. I don’t buy summer goods in the winter because that would just disappoint me. All the cruciferous veggies, winter squash and citrus are amazing right now.
I added a local book event to my calendar for those of you who live in Orange County (or LA.) I’ll be doing a free cooking demo at Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar on Sunday, March 17th at 10:00 am. I’ll also be signing books! Come join me if you’re in the neighborhood. I hope you are staying warm and toasty! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Saturday lunch: This Warming Winter Smoothie from The Minimalist Baker or if you’re really hungry try this Quick Pantry Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Burrata from Half-Baked Harvest.
Sunday: Hasselback Sweet Potatoes. While you’re roasting the sweet potatoes throw in a sliced red onion, broccoli and kale, tossed in olive oil and sea salt, to roast as well. Let the veggies get crisp in the oven and when ready squeeze some lemon juice and drizzle tahini on top. I’ll also make a slow cooker while chicken.
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Make all dressings, marinades, sauces
Make the cauliflower soup in its entirety or just roast the garlic
Cook all grains
Wash salad greens
Make enchilada sauce
Make chicken for enchiladas
Here’s a link to my previous dinner planners.
