Welllllll that was a fast week.

We 100% ran out of Gorilla Bins by, like, Wednesday. I guess when they send enough boxes for a “one bedroom” apartment, they really mean a “one bedroom not inhabited by both a child and a person who owns enough prop plates/bowls to serve the entire US army”. WHO KNEW.

Thankfully before we decided to order the Gorilla Bins, the.boy had scavenged a ton of cardboard boxes from local recycle bins so we’re not totally SOL. And I guess we could call the Gorilla Bins people to send more. But we’re not at quite that level of panic about the box situation. Yet.

I cooked for the last time in our kitchen last night and as of this morning it is officially CLOSED FOR BUSINESS aside from stuff we can easily grab and heat up from the fridge or something that only requires the use of one small pan, like eggs. So while I obviously will be spending my Memorial Day weekend ordering moving take-out and not cooking up a storm, I hope YOU are firing up the bbq and getting busy in your kitchen.

We have some great vegetarian start-of-summer options for you in this week’s healthy vegetarian meal plan, some of which would be perfect for serving up this weekend. These include: vegan broccoli and cheeze chickpea burgers, bbq cauliflower and chickpea burgers, super colorful lentil taco salads, a greek super grains salad dressed up with homemade pita chips, and gorgeously green wasabi veggie bowls. Hopefully you can find something in there to whet your appetite. Happy eating!

    I would laugh if your contribution for the week was the phone number for takeout.
