I was trying to figure out why I’ve been so tired this week and it hit me just now – it’s because I’ve been working for the past twelve days!!! I SO need this weekend.
Of course, Remy doesn’t quite understand sleeping in so we were still up at 6:30AM. But STILL.
Can we talk about fall? Specifically, fall RECIPES. I’m in a blogging facebook group and there was a big debate the other day about whether we “should” be starting to post pumpkin/apple/etc recipes already. It was very divisive. Half the people were like HAEEELLLLL NO, enjoy the summer while it’s here, don’t rush things (<– these are my people). The other half was like SEO, pinterest trends, blah blah blah. Apparently interest in fall recipes starts to pick up in JULY and so that’s really the peak time to begin sharing. Now keep in mind that the latter group was more people who make their entire living off their blog, so they have a more vested interest in this kind of thing. Where I, on the other hand, am just a hobbyist.
So. Tell me what you think??? If you guys are ready for fall, I can totally accommodate because I have some recipes saved from last winter/fall ready to go and I can absolutely share them (while secretly continuing to eat corn, heirloom tomatoes, zucchini on my own time).
This week’s meal plan is definitely starting to take more of a fall/comfort food twist. Here’s what we’ve got:
- sheet pan cabbage and tempeh – SO EASY
- macro bowls! – filled with so many nutrients it’s insane
- crispy baked tacos – luurrvveee
- Indian ratatouille – total comfort!
- Asian peanut noodles – sluuurrrpp
