I have been having such a great month teaching Thanksgiving classes!  People ask me if I’m sick of Thanksgiving by the time it’s Thanksgiving.  Of course NOT!  I am even more excited to prepare my own dinner with my kids.  It’s my favorite day of the year!  You still have plenty of time to get things done ahead of time, like almost all of your grocery shopping.  I have all my tips and tricks listed in my Thanksgiving ebook, which is over 100 pages and only $10.  It is a LIFESAVER, I promise!

My big birthday month continues this weekend as I head to one of my favorite places, Montecito, for my final celebration.  I know, enough already! I will catch up on Instagram lives this week and next weekend.

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Roasted vegetable lasagne (vegetarian) or hearty vegetable vegan lasagna

Tuesday: Lickety-Split Chicken from my cookbook, brussels sprouts with turkey bacon and dates  (good recipe for Thanksgiving, too!)

Wednesday: Deconstructed salmon sushi bowls

Thursday: Lemony chickpea souparugula salad with persimmons, beets and burrata

Friday:  Cauliflower steaks with cauliflower puree and mint pesto, endive and pear salad with walnuts and parmesan

Saturday Brunch: savory muffins with spinach, roasted peppers and feta

Sunday: Moroccan chicken with dates, served with steamed white rice or couscous


Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:


prep vegetables for lasagne

Season chicken

Prep brussels sprouts

Make all dressings, sauces and marinades

Shave parmesan
