I think I’m becoming crotchety. It probably has something to do with having to work > 12 hour days.
Or basically living at the hospital.
Or consistently getting less than 6 hours of sleep a night.
But last night I was literally driven insane by our Instacart shopper. I think I gave him the most negative review I’ve ever given anyone. I maintain that he deserved it, but I’m probably a little bit more passionate about the integrity of my groceries than the rest of the population is. In my defense, he charged me for potatoes that I never asked for and refunded the butter I ordered without even trying to replace it, as if there was NO butter in all of Whole Foods. I mean, I just find that very hard to believe.
And did I mention that I’m subsisting on less than 6 hours of sleep a night?! I. NEED. BUTTER.
Sigh. Maybe I expect too much?!?!
Anyway. Now that I’ve worked myself up into a state over this, let’s talk meal plans! This one has a good mix of fall foods and end of summer favorites. There are vegan crab cakes, homemade veggie dogs, a grilled veggie salad, a sheet pan Mexican veggie dinner, and my favorite summery quesadillas. Happy eating!
