Is this season whizzing by or what?? Before we know it we’ll be making New Year’s resolutions and swearing off chocolate for at least a week. We’re having a little Christmas get-together today with some friends…kind of a dry run for the double header of Christmas Eve/Christmas Day that we do every year. Except at this party I don’t have to cook dinner and we just order pizza – SO MUCH EASIER. I just make lots of appetizers and desserts, and honestly no one is even hungry for the pizza by the end but we buy it anyway. Typical.
What are your weekends looking like??
We’ve got some goodies on this week’s meal plan! Let’s dive in:
- VEGAN chickpea pot pie – how good does that look?!
- instant pot vegan cream of mushroom soup – total comfort
- shaved brussel sprouts salad with roasted butternut squash – so many superfoods!!
- roasted cauliflower and chickpea soup – chickpea croutons FTW
