Who is having a BIG Thanksgiving this year??  Me me me!!  I can’t wait!!  I am very excited to take my own Thanksgiving Bootcamp starting THIS week because I need a little refresh for this holiday.  It has been exactly 2 years since I have entertained on this scale and I need to sharpen my skills!  Who wants to join me???  I will have you so prepared for Thanksgiving that you will be giddy with anticipation for the big day and totally prepared for any massive cooking holiday in the future!  For my community, use the code TDAY100 for $100 OFF this course.  I had people write me emails after last year’s Thanksgiving with tears of joy streaming down their faces!  I only host this once a year!

Also, I am repeating my favorite bootcamp of all this week, Plant-Based 2.0!  If you want to deepen your plant based cookings skills so you never need to buy a Plant-Based cookbook, this is the course for you.  You’ll be able to convert any recipe with animal products to a plant-based version.  You don’t have to be 100% plant-exclusive or vegan to benefit from this course.  Use the code YESPB2 for $100 off this course!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: mixed greens with green beans, almonds, and dried cherry vinaigrette + I’m going to add quinoa and feta and double the dressing so this can be a whole meal

Tuesday: tomato tart, shawarma broccoli (If you need something more, a frittata or piece of fish would be perfect.)

Wednesday: Sumac spiced chickenjeweled rice (there are some veggies in the rice, but if you have time, roast some cauliflower to go with)

Thursday: Black bean and pumpkin soup, corn muffins(cornbread recipe in muffin tin)

Friday: Miso glazed black cod, pea and mushroom sauté, black rice

Saturday brunch: Savory oats with kale, mushrooms and walnuts, add a poached egg if you want more protein.

Sunday: Cauliflower Tikka Masala from Quicker than Quick served with steamed rice or try store-bought naan if that would encourage your kids to try it, plus chopped cashews to add a little protein (if you need more, serve with a simple piece of fish or stir cooked lentils into the masala sauce.). Chicken Tikka Masala is here.


Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:


Wash greens

Blanch green beans

Make cherry vinaigrette

Cook quinoa

Measure dry mix for corn muffins


You can make the tomato tart and serve room temp or reheat the next day


Skewer chicken with vegetables

Cook black beans if making from scratch


Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel

Wash and strip kale

Cook black rice and reheat the next day


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!
