Heyo!! As you’re reading this, we are probably hovering somewhere between New York and DC because YES we are flying to go a distance of less than 300 miles. So, what normal people would drive in, like…4 to 5 hours without traffic. Seems crazy, right?
BUT you’ve also never been in a car with my daughter and I assure you that once you have, you will opt to go through airport security five times in a row just to avoid an hour in the car with her. Really and truly.
We’ll just be in DC over the weekend for a Sunday wedding, so not enough time to do too much. I’m boycotting laying eyes on the White House (for obvious reasons) and I really don’t need any fake-smile photos of our family standing in front of it pretending that we approve of the man inside. And if we’re not going to sight see, I guess we’ll just have to eat! Thankfully, DC has plenty of good stuff awaiting us on the food front and I’m sure we won’t be wanting for anything.
Speaking of food, this week’s meal plan has so many great options for the week! There are citrusy tofu tacos, a healthy pasta salad, a bursting-with-spring linguine with lemony pea pesto, mediterranean chickpea burgers, and zoodles with a Greek flavor twist. Happy eating!
