Wow, Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away!  Do not panic – I am here for you and it is going to be great!  Subscribe (for free) to my newsletter where I share helpful tips on what you can do ahead of time week to week.  Also, I have an epic Thanksgiving E-Book with almost all my over 100 Thanksgiving recipes (not from this year’s class) and my best strategies and troubleshooting tips for a seamless holiday.  For $15, everything you need is in one PDF and it will save you so much time and stress.  I give you my word!!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Miso soup (add some tofu for protein) and veggie sushi rolls (there are so many variations – one of my favorites is roasted sweet potato, avocado and a spicy sriracha aioli)

Tuesday: Martha Stewart’s Roasted Branzino with Lemon and Thyme + Spinach and Quinoa Salad with Feta and Dill 

Wednesday: The Best Turkey Meatloaf, crispy salt and vinegar potatoes, Brussels sprout slaw p. 63 from Quicker than Quick

Thursday: Chicken parmigiana (take these breaded and baked cutlets, then add sauce and cheese if you want and bake until melted), skipping the pasta in favor of roasted cauliflower or broccoli, salad with everyday salad dressing #2

Friday: Asada Mushroom Tacos – since mushrooms only contain a few grams of protein, I would serve them with a side of beans (or buy them canned.) Top with salsa + guacamole.

Saturday Brunch: Pear Carpaccio with grilled chicken, salmon or chickpeas for extra protein

Sunday: Slow Cooker White Bean and Sausage Soup, focaccia or cornbread

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

Prep veggies for sushi rolls

Make quinoa

Saute onions and bacon for meatloaf (this mixture can be sauteed and frozen too)

Prep cauliflower

Make all dressings and vinaigrettes

Make stock for soup
