I was so out of it when I was creating last week’s dinner planner, that Cinco de Mayo was not on my radar for this Sunday. Whoops! As you know, I have soooo many delicious and healthy-ish Mexican recipes, from red and green enchiladas, to this chopped salad and this Mexican Cobb, and Caldo Tlalpeno soup, plus arroz verde and lots of tacos, including slow cooker chicken, beef barbacoa, fish, cauliflower, as well as Mexican beans and drunken beans.
Lots happening this week. I am starting a new menu in my cooking classes this week. I just filmed a class for my online class platform and all I can say is that is one of my best classes yet! Hubs is celebrating a big birthday this week and we are sneaking away to his favorite place, Palm Springs, for a few days. We’ll be back in time for a bigger birthday celebration and then Mother’s Day! What a week!
Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Tuesday: Cornflake Oven “Fried” Chicken with Sauerkraut Slaw, roasted potato wedges
Wednesday: Gluten-free pasta with 5-minute cherry tomato sauce and shrimp (add the shrimp the tomatoes just as the tomatoes are done and sautée until the shrimp are cooked through – about 3-4 minutes), grilled broccolini
Thursday: Broccoli, Celery Root, and Spinach Soup from my book, I’m going to add cooked quinoa and white beans or chickpeas to make this a hearty meal.
Saturday Lunch: Chickpea and Deconstructed Pesto Salad. Replace the tomatoes with artichoke hearts, either of the jar or frozen/defrosted and roasted at 400 degrees for 20 minutes with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Sunday (Mother’s Day): Mother’s Day! Here are some great options that would be perfect for breakfast-in-bed to all of those deserving moms!:
Yogurt and Granola Parfait (try basic granola, dark chocolate granola, peanut butter granola or the grain-free granola from my cookbook)
Pancakes: Grain-free sweet potato pancakes, fluffy whole grain lemon poppyseed ricotta pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, multigrain pancakes from my cookbook
Here’s what you can do ahead of time:
Wash and prep all veggies (especially for your spring rolls)
Make pasta sauce
Make basmati rice
Make chia pudding, muffins souffle, scones, quiche crust
