Exciting days ahead, friends!  We are less than 4 weeks away from Thanksgiving.  My new 2021 Thanksgiving ebook will be available early next week so you can plan the most fabulous Thanksgiving ever!

Also, I am repeating my most fun and highly popular bootcamp, Entertaining with Ease, starting Tuesday!  For my friends, use the code EWE100 for $100 off the course.  It is very different from the Thanksgiving bootcamp and I will have winter options for all the recipes to get you 100% ready to entertain during the holidays!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Sugar snap pea and quinoa salad with tofu (I will replace snap peas with cauliflower or another fall/winter vegetable), I might add a quick saute of veggies if I think we need it

Tuesday: Deconstructed stuffed cabbage casserole, serve a salad on the side if you need more (you can swap lentils for the meat to make this vegetarian).

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

Thursday: Easy Chinese chicken, steamed rice, blanched or roasted broccoli

Friday: Pizza night!  Here’s my homemade pizza dough recipe.  I cook the pizzas on a preheated pizza stone in my oven at the highest temperature my oven will go which is 500 convection!

Saturday brunch: Green goddess quesadillas p. 127 from Quicker than Quick

Sunday: Mediterranean fish stew


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


Cook quinoa

Make dressing

Blanch cabbage leaves

Cook ground meat

Cook chickpeas if making from scratch


Assemble cabbage casserole


Cut broccoli into florets


Make pizza dough if making from scratch


I have LOVED seeing all your creations of my recipes on Instagram. If you make any of my recipes, please tag me @pamelasalzman #pamelasalzman so I can check them out!

My cookbook, Quicker Than Quick, is discounted for the first time on Amazon!  If you have 1 minute, would you mind leaving a review on amazon?  I would be so grateful, thank you!
