I hope you are in the midst of a fabulous holiday weekend. I am taking my relaxing very seriously if you must know ;). My older daughter came home from Dallas and accompanied my husband and me to our friends’ house in Montecito for a few days and other than writing this blog post, I have checked out!
For my cooking class students, I am not teaching in person July or August, only online. I can teach a class by request, but I am out almost the entire month of July. Please email Erika for August availability: email@example.com We filmed July’s online class last week and it will be uploaded a little earlier this month since I am going out of town for vacation with hubs to celebrate our very big birthdays (YIKES!) In the meantime, summer is a great time to try new recipes. Invite some friends over for a potluck, and take the pressure off. 🙂 Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Tuesday: Chipotle shrimp tacos from my book with pineapple slaw, grilled zucchini
Wednesday: Asian turkey lettuce cups, black rice (follow package directions)
Friday: Poached salmon, zesty potato skewers, sauteed green beans (I like to blanch the beans in salted water for 3 minutes, drain, shock in ice water, drain, pat dry and saute with shallots, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon or lemon zest.)
Saturday brunch: Berry Bircher muesli
Sunday: Turkey and zucchini burgers, sauteed corn, tomatoes with basil, salt and pepper (I love to saute in a mix of butter and olive oil or Miyokos vegan butter and olive oil – although you could even do this uncooked with raw corn if the corn is SUPER fresh.)
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Make all salad dressings and sauces
Make seasoning for tacos
Prep veggies for the next three days
