A simple side salad for spring made with baby spinach, fresh raspberries, and goat cheese that are tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette.

Simple Spinach Salad with Raspberries, Goat Cheese, and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Don’t mind me, just working on my salad game over here.

I’ve got the salad-as-a-meal concept down but if we’re being honest, I come from a lineage of terrible side salad makers. My mom would literally just pull a bag of pre-chopped lettuce out of the fridge, douse it in some blue cheese or ranch, and call it a vegetable. I used to think she was just being lazy, but now I have a kid and I know better. She was just surviving. I get it.

Sorry this is so late!!! Mike took care of Remy so I could oversleep a whole TWO HOURS this morning. It was unprecedented. And glorious.

I’m considering it a late Mother’s Day present and celebrating by making us all pancakes tomorrow morning. WINNNNNNN. I’m also in such a good mood this weekend because I have a whole TWO days off. My co-intern needed next weekend off so we did some schedule switcheroo-ing resulting in me having a golden weekend this weekend in exchange for having a really hectic Sunday next weekend. WHATEVS. It’s just one day of mayhem. I’ll take it!

Hope you’re all having an excellent weekend! In case you’re still in the mood for some menu plan action, we’ve got some good eats planned for you. Have a good one!

Funfetti Angel Food Cupcakes

I’m in this new season of mothering in which Remy wakes up at an ungodly hour (FIVE. f-ing. A. M.) and expects me to take care of her.

Whhhhhaaattttttttt.

Pretty sure I sleep trained her to sleep in until at least seven to avoid this exact problem.

HEALTHY VEGETARIAN MEAL PLANS #plantbased #mealplanning #vegan

Hi friends! Thanks for all of your sleep advice. My take home from all of it was that I AM NOT ALONE, and that I did not somehow do this to my child. It’s just one of the many joys of toddlers – they can be so intensely adorable and sweet but also so intensely mind boggling and infuriating. Reading all of your comments also made me feel like I just need to a take a chill pill about it. In ten years when Remy is yelling “stay away from me, mommy!” as I try to help do her hair or stand next to her in the schoolyard (<– who am I kidding, she does this now) I’ll think back on all the times she just wanted to cling to me as tightly as she could and I’ll almost certainly miss them. And now I’m crying, already missing all the newborn/baby/1 year old/toddler days I’ll never get to have again.

THIS IS MOTHERHOOD, YOU GUYS.

Hug your momma today (and tomorrow!) and cling to her just a little bit. She might think you’re a weirdo, but she’ll also probably appreciate it.

Enjoy this week’s meal plan and happy eating!
