I took a little vacation at home this week! The first three days of the week I didn’t do any work-work, just chipped away at some of the disorganization in my house that happened over quarantine. Yikes, I have a lot more to do! Wednesday it was my daughter Anna’s birthday and we had an all-day celebration. It was the first time that I haven’t had a class to teach online or a deadline, so I decided to do house stuff and finish “American Dirt,” which I LOVED. Hubs and I also started binge-watching “Zero Zero Zero” – also so good! I have been enjoying very delicious produce lately – corn, zucchini, tomatoes, peaches, melons, basil YUM! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Chickpea Socca with Mediterranean Salad
Tuesday: Sheet pan chicken with artichokes, zucchini and cherry tomatoes, sauteed corn
Wednesday: Shrimp and basil stir fry, black rice, grilled eggplant
Thursday: Baked chicken with tomatoes, olives and capers (in the summer I use cherry tomatoes), pasta with pesto
Saturday brunch: Arugula with cantaloupe and grilled halloumi
Sunday: Clamboil (easier than it looks and SO MUCH FUN!)
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Make socca mixture
Make shrimp marinade
Make salad dressing
Season chicken for sheet pan
