Okay, I stand corrected from my last post where I said it wasn’t salad season.

IT IS TOTALLY SALAD SEASON. 30 degree weather and all.

And I say this because this week’s meal plan features TWO salads and I’m not even sorry about it. In fact, I’m basically overjoyed because I’ve been striving to live a salad-every-day kind of lifestyle and this is totally helping.

In ADDITION to salads (because let’s be honest, we can’t live on leafy greens alone), we also have black bean tacos with mango salsa, creamy dreamy polenta with an onion/pepper/mushroom ragout, and fancy pants portobello steaks with a basil aioli. So excited.

Happy eating!
