A healthy vegetarian meal plan to make weeknight meals a cinch!
Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans

What are you all up to on this late summer Sunday?!

We had been considering taking Remy to her first major league baseball game, but with temps in the high 80s, I think it will a bit too much for her especially since it’s a pretty long subway ride to and from the stadium so we couldn’t even easily get home if we needed to. So instead, I have heavy duty plans to churn up my first ice cream batch of the season (better late than never, am I right?) and do a whole LOT of cooking to stock up the fridge because I start kind of a crazy rotation this week (my sub-internship) and it’s 100% unclear that I’ll be getting home early enough to get anything done during the week.

This week was BIG in Remy-world, namely because it’s the first week that she really mastered the back-to-belly roll! Before, she was kind of dabbling in it but it took a whole lot of effort and as of this week, she’s been doing it like it ain’t no thang. She’s also (finally) laughing on the regular and seeing her face light up is all kinds of BEST.

As for this week’s healthy vegetarian menu plan, you guys are in for SO MANY late summer treats. Happy cooking!!

    enjoy the heat – we had a nice warm day yesterday that meant a visit to the park on the way home from school pick up – and that sounds like fun to have Remy rolling – she’ll be running before you know it
