Hi friends! Any fun labor day plans??

I’ll be spending two out of three days in the hospital – today with my mother who just had knee surgery and tomorrow for work. Fingers crossed that things will be quiet because everyone will have left for the holiday weekend!

We’ve still got some summery eats on our meal plan this week to keep the spirit alive. Here’s what we’re cooking:

  • late summer harvest bowls with kale pesto – eat the rainbow!
  • fajita omelettes – always love breakfast-for-dinner
  • tempeh and chickpea sloppy joes – can be made in 30 minutes!
  • skillet brown rice and beans topped with heirloom tomato salsa – gotta eat all the tomatoes while we can
  • curried chickpea salad – perfect for easy lunches

Happy eating!

    I’m currently sitting in the car because the little guy fell asleep on the way home from the park. We’re tearing up labor day over here!
