If it’s hot where you are, this dinner planner may help give you ideas for cooking when you don’t feel like turning on the oven!  I am thinking no-cook, grilling outside, and slow cooker (mine doesn’t add warmth to the kitchen like an oven.) If you take my monthly online cooking class, I am going live with you on Tuesday at 5:00 pm PT!  It’s an opportunity for you to ask me anything at all and interact with other students.  We always have a lively conversation and it has been fun getting to know many of you!  If you like learning from me, you should absolutely sign up for my monthly class.  No in-person classes anymore, so this is the next best thing! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Raw Tacosrefried beans, riced veggies (you can follow the steps for cauliflower rice here, but lots of vegetables work such as broccoli, zucchini, carrots and cabbage), guacamole

Tuesday: Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta, cooked rice, grilled vegetables

Wednesday: The best grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce (see this recipe), grilled broccolini with parmesan breadcrumbs

Thursday: salmorejo and tortilla “pizza” (place a tortilla on a baking sheet and top like a pizza with or without cheese or use vegan soft cheese, bake at 400 until warmed through.)  I like Siete Foods grain-free chickpea tortillas or Food For Life sprouted grain tortillas.

Friday: Fresh corn cakes with avocado salsa, slow cooker whole roast chicken

Saturday brunch: chickpea and deconstructed pesto salad

Sunday: Greek-style grilled chicken paillardwatermelon agua fresca
