What a week. It’s my last full week of a month on inpatient service and I am feeling it. One of these nights I’m going to get more than 6 hours of sleep. I swear it. Today I’m working. Tomorrow I’ll be recovering (and cooking and running around after a toddler and did I mention cooking?). It’s just nonstop.

I start a two week block of outpatient clinic next week and it is going to feel soooooooooooooo good.

Enough small talk. Here’s what we’ve got on this week’s meal plan:

  • swiss chard mushroom enchiladas
  • Thai lentil vegan “meat”loaf
  • baked ziti with roasted red peppers, baby kale, and ricotta
  • taco stuffed sweet potatoes
  • orange ginger zucchini noodles

Happy eating!

A hearty white bean soup topped with wine-braised caramelized leeks.
Wine-Braised Leek and White Bean Soup

I brought a white bean salad (recipe to be shared soon! ish!) for lunch this week and my friend David laughed, saying “you do love your beans”. He’s referring to the insane amount of Instagram stories I’ve posted that are essentially just odes to my Rancho Gordo Bean Club deliveries. I can’t help it! An entire box full of six different varieties of beans just waiting to be made into delicious meals like this.

Heck yes, I DO love my beans.

A rich and cheesy onion tart topped with a refreshing arugula, pecorino, and walnut salad.
Cheesy Onion Tart with Arugula, Pecorino, and Walnut Salad

You know I’m still trying to eat healthy (ten pounds down since January, what whattt!!), but every once in a while you need some cheesy puff pastry tart indulgence in your life.

Also, making a meal when you’ve got a thawed sheet of puff pastry in your fridge is THE EASIEST and a total lifesaver especially on weeks when I’ve had to work 7 days in a row and on my one day that I’m home Remy insists on attaching herself to my hip/helping in the kitchen. Turns out piling stuff on puff pastry is her calling in life. WHO KNEW!!
