SO happy it’s the weekend. I don’t know what it was but this week at work just felt super stressful. Maybe it was the neurosurgeons who called me at literally every hour of the day and night for recommendations despite me leaving very clear recommendations in my notes every day. But I am very very grateful to not be holding a pager for two days!
Today we have t-ball again (Remy was hilarious last week) and then we are making use of this fall-ish weather to head to the aquarium! Of course when we get home I have TONS of fall cooking and baking to do. I love summer, but this is really my favorite time of the year. Pretty much everything is in season, the weather is just cool enough that I’m not mad about turning on the oven but also warm enough to go out and do things. It’s just great! What plans do you all have for the weekend??
Here’s what we’ve got on our meal plan today:
- the BEST (vegan) pumpkin mac and cheese – totally sending this with Remy for lunch!
- slow cooker smoky vegetarian chili – so hearty and cozy
- vegan sopa azteca – eat the rainbow!!
- caramelized onion, fig, and ricotta pizza – all the heart eyes for those figs
- pesto pasta with vegetables – another one that’s great for school lunches
