I arrived on Long Island the other day and made my way out to my parents’ house for a week with my sisters and their kids. I just love Long Island in the summer. The West Coast is great, but there’s nothing like East Coast summer. I am a little jet lagged still despite assuming the time zone once I arrived. Hopefully I can beat it tonight! I have created a great summer menu for the week ahead, although I will be cooking for a crowd so I will follow a different plan. You can follow along on Instagram for the details. But I will be including all the summer goods like corn, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, peaches, green beans, basil, peppers and berries!
Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Vegetarian chopped antipasto salad
Tuesday: Grilled Summer Salad with Chicken Spicy Cashew Dressing from my book (omit chicken for a vegetarian/vegan version; add boiled potatoes for more substance, if you think you need it)
Friday: Clamboil (recipe coming early in the week!), tomato and cucumber salad (you can do Fattoush with or without the pita chips)
Saturday: Baked berry oatmeal
Sunday: Dinner salad with radicchio and roasted sweet potatoes from bon appetit healthyish
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Make all dressings, sauces, and marinades
Grill chicken for salad
Make rice for stuffed peppers
Prep broccolini (wash, trim)
