It’s Thanksgiving week!!! Arguably the best week of the year.
Last year I wasn’t off so I didn’t bake or cook A SINGLE THING. So this year I’m making up for it by planning to bake ALL THE THINGS. Apple pie, pumpkin pie, cornbread stuffing, and some sort of vegetarian main course for Remy and I to eat. Maybe we’ll share….maybe not.
We’ve got a lot of light and healthy meals planned for this week in anticipation of all the food we know you’ll be eating on Thursday:
- butternut squash pear soup
- EASY vegan meatloaf
- butternut squash and chickpea chili
- rosemary roasted potato, mushroom, and lentil salad
- chickpea shawarma burgers
