It’s April and I’m sipping my morning coffee while Charlie Brown’s Christmas is on in the background. Having kids is so weird!
Really I should be planning for Remy’s third birthday, which is in TWO WEEKS. I think we’re going to end up having four parties for her, which is insane – a kids party for her and her friends, a party with my family, a party with Mike’s family, and then a cake on her actual birthday. She still insists on having a “red cake”, but I’m seeing this as an opportunity to make a whole slew of different cake flavors for her multiple parties. Maybe the funfetti sheet cake from Christina Tosi’s latest cookbook…I think that HAS to make an appearance.
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
- spring farro bowls with lemon tahini dressing (so purrfffeect for meal prep)
- slow cooker smoky vegetarian chili (dying over this)
- pesto quinoa salad (yaaassss)
- thai tofu zoodle soup (eat the rainbow!!!)
- sweet potato tostadas (lurrvveee)
