Hey guys! I’m alive. Just took a mini break from blogging. I don’t know what it was – the mental/physical exhaustion from working in the ED, still feeling a bit jet lagged from switching from nights to days, a little bit of a brewing cold, having a two year old – but I just couldn’t with anything last week.
The good news is that I had a day off yesterday and I am feeling revitalized and re-inspired to cook, to eat, to dream about what I’m making for Thanksgiving. You know, the important things.
Before we get to Thanksgiving, though, we have weeknight dinners for almost TWO WHOLE WEEKS to worry about. No biggie. Let’s do this meal plan thang.
Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you this week!
- VEGAN butternut squash enchiladas
- orange tofu chickpea bowls
- broccoli beet and kale brown rice bowls
- smoky slow cooker chili
- roasted delicata squash salad
