The unseasonable cold temps and rain in Southern California has had us all talking nonstop about the weather.  NON. STOP.  I will not be following this dinner planner this week. Instead, Hubs and I decided we will be having soup every single night!!  If you take my online monthly cooking class, it is being uploaded on March 1.  The menu is perfect for Easter AND Passover!!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:


Meatless Monday: Creamy black bean soup, avocado toast or  sweet potato toast

Tuesday: Yerba Mate chicken and cilantro soup (you can also make this with chicken stock and not brewed tea)

Wednesday: Sugar snap pea and quinoa salad with tofu (we’ll see how hungry Hubs and I are– I can always supplement with a quick chopped salad or roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce.)

Thursday: chicken and veggie fajitas (mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, and/or onions), guacamole

Friday: Lime-Soy fish, sautéed asparagus, lemony greek potatoes

Saturday brunch: strawberry mint tabbouleh p. 31 from QTQ 

Sunday: sheet pan curry butter chicken with sweet potatoes and tahini from half baked harvest, fresh green salad



Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you: 


Make stock

Cook black beans if making from scratch

Make dressings


Cook quinoa + cook extra for Saturday


Marinate chicken for fajitas


Marinate potatoes 

Make marinade for fish


Wash strawberries
