My baby, affectionately referred to since the inception of this website as Mr. Picky, is graduating high school this weekend!  OMG.  Very emotional week for me.  I am proud of course, excited for his future, and a bit weepy that he will be fleeing the nest in a few months.  I am grateful Hubs and I can take it all in.  

For my monthly cooking class subscribers, I am doing our monthly live zoom on Tuesday at 5:00 pm PT.  Come with all your questions, or just hang out and listen to the conversation.  I’d love to see you!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Corn and zucchini frittata, green salad with everyday salad dressing #2

Tuesday: Bell pepper and beef taco skillet from Feed me Phoebe (thinly slice your bell peppers if you don’t have a spiralizer) black beans and cauli-rice (I have lots of go-to swaps for ground beef like cooked lentils, soaked TVP, mushrooms pulsed in a food processor, crumbled tempeh, and more.)

Wednesday: Cod acqua pazza (such a good one-dish meal)

Thursday: Vegetarian larb from QTQ, served with lettuce leaves or black rice or both!

Friday: Rainbow Carrot Salad with Millet and Yogurt Dressing  served with grilled chicken or chickpeas

Saturday brunch: Watermelon and tomato salad with feta and mint

Sunday (Father’s Day): Grilled cedar plank salmon, grilled asparagus, Greek pasta salad

Here are a few options (there are plenty more though) to make for the dads in your life:

Meat and Fish

Grilled marinated flank steak

Chicken souvlaki

Grilled fish tacos

Spiced halibut and lime skewers

Deconstructed Bagel and Lox Salad If you do a brunch…

Taco Pizza


Corn and vegetable chowder

Black bean and beet burgers

Banana French Toast Casserole from KM

Vegan Mac and Cheese 

Grilled Pizza


Grilled corn and black bean salsa

Pea pesto and burrata crostini

Chopped grilled vegetable salad

Deconstructed Guacamole Salad


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


Wash greens

Make salad dressing

You can make the frittata and reheat the next day


Cut veggies for cod acqua pazza. Cut potatoes should be covered in water to prevent oxidation. 


Cook black rice

Cook millet


Make yogurt dressing
