I’m so excited!  I just finished teaching my last class and I am not even sick of Thanksgiving food!  My daughters are coming home soon and we are all going to be together cooking, talking, playing games, eating, what could be better? I am keeping the dinners easy this week because I never have enough time in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving to freeze casseroles for dinners this week.  I will popping on Instagram to do some lives in the days preceding Thanksgiving.  Keep your eye out on my stories for announcements.  I typically jump on in the morning or evening.

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Naan pizza (spread your favorite topping on fresh naan bread from the store and roast in the oven until ingredients are warmed and cheese is melted), green salad with Everyday Salad Dressing #1

Tuesday: Slow cooker chicken tacos served bowl-style with rice, organic black or pinto beans, freshly shredded cabbage, thinly sliced radish rounds and fresh avocado

Wednesday: Tuna patties, winter vegetable slaw with ginger and lime from my book mixed with quinoa and any leftover avocado

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re still searching for recipes and tips, my new Thanksgiving E-Book is here.

Friday: Leftovers!  Check out these recipes for Spinach and Turkey Quesadillas with Cranberry SauceStuffing Egg BakeMashed Potato Croquettes, use this Chicken Pot Pie recipe and sub turkey for chicken and gravy for the flour/stock combo + whatever leftover vegetables are left

Saturday Brunch: Lemon turkey and barley soup or Turkey tortilla soup (posting on Tuesday)

Sunday: Giant salad with leftover turkey and roasted vegetables tossed with a simple unrefined extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt


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


Wash and dry all veggies

Make all dressings, marinades and sauces

Make rice and quinoa


Prep slaw ingredients


Make turkey stock with your leftover turkey carcass.  (Or use chicken stock and make this soup with that.)
