My mom, my aunt and my daughters are visiting this week and through the weekend for a family event and we are having a blast!  I am hoping to convince my aunt to join me for my regular Instagram live on Monday at 5:00 pm, but we’ll see. My mom needs no convincing and will be there with bells on and an Aperol spritz lol!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Lentil and rice stuffed eggplant, green salad (click here for my favorite everyday salad dressings)

Tuesday: Mediterranean fish in parchment, Corn and edamame succotash

Wednesday: Chicken Enchilada Rojas With Homemade Enchilada Sauce (You can also make this with mostly roasted or grilled vegetables and you can buy good quality enchilada sauce like Siete Foods.)

Thursday: Summer rolls with whatever you have in the fridge/pantry.  The rice wrappers are bland so that you can add whatever you want.  Set up a DIY bar for the family!  Add black rice salad if you need more.

Friday: Instant pot creamy dijon chicken p. 203 from Quicker than Quick,  quick sauteed zucchini from Kitchen Matters

Saturday brunch: nectarine goat cheese salad, tomato, olive oil and salt on toasted ciabatta or other crusty bread

Sunday: Clamboil  (easier than it looks and SO MUCH FUN!)


Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you: 


Cook lentils and rice

Make salad dressing

Wash greens

Make enchilada sauce if making from scratch


Cook chicken or roast veggies for enchiladas


Cook black rice
