I can’t believe that December is upon us. I’m watching snow videos sent from Nevada while enjoying mild temperatures in Baja. I do miss a good blizzard but only if I don’t have to go anywhere.
I hope my menu gives you a few ideas to try this week. Planning is everything when you’re committed to eating a varied and healthy diet. I’ve included 3 vegetarian meals, one fish taco recipe and some lean beef meals.
Buen provecho, enjoy your meal and get outside for some fresh air and exercise.

I haven’t seen ricotta in Loreto but it’s easy to make with whole milk, don’t use ultra pasteurized milk. Homemade Ricotta
Baja Fish Tacos in beer batter with spicy slaw: She uses cod but cabrilla, sea bass or red snapper would work well. Serve with pinto beans and rice.
Meat loaf with poblanos:
Combine 1 pound of ground beef, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Microwave 1/2 cup chopped green onion, 1 diced poblano pepper, 1 cup finely sliced Swiss chard for 2 minutes. Drain any liquid. Add to the meat mixture and combine. Top with ketchup and sliced peppers.
Bake in an oiled loaf pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. The poblanos were delicious in this Mexican meatloaf.
Serve with roasted asparagus.
Baked Mexican Falafel: Serve with tzatziki: yogurt, garlic, cucumber, mint and cilantro.
Carne Asada Tacos: Beef marinated in citrus and chilies. I use thinly sliced beef sirloin which cooks in 5-7 minutes on the grill.
