Happy weekend!  If you take my monthly online cooking class, the June class is up and the theme is Summer Potluck!  I demonstrated 5 fabulous brand new recipes that are perfect for summer gatherings, potlucks, July 4th get-togethers, and all the recipes (as usual) are flexible.  I share ways to make everything vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, and dairy-free.  If you don’t take my monthly class, you’re missing out!  If you give me an hour a month, I’ll make you a better and healthier cook!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:


Meatless MondayZucchini pizza boats (add cooked ground turkey or tempeh to the marinara if you want some more protein), vegetarian chopped antipasto salad

Tuesday: slow cooker barbacoa tacos + all the fixings! I always serve a vegetable with every meal, so I’ll probably saute some bell peppers and onions.

Wednesday: Chicken kabobs with green goddess tzatziki, steamed rice, pita, green salad

Thursday: Farro chopped salad with orange juice vinaigrette, pan-seared halibut

Friday: Melissa Clark’s Ratatouille Sheet Pan Chicken looks interesting via Today Food

Saturday brunch: Watermelon and tomato salad with feta and mint

Sunday: Corn cakes with avocado salsa, grilled shrimp (I do a quick spice rub on these with my fish taco seasoning), and green salad with radishes, red cabbage, white beans and cilantro dressing


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