Happy weekend!

I think our heat wave is finally starting to break here (at least, it will be in the high 70s this weekend) which I am very grateful for. You know I am super PRO mask wearing, but it is so hard to be outside for long periods of time with one on when its in the 90s with a gazillion percent humidity. We still do it, obviously, but it just means we can’t stay outside for as long.

On the other hand, if this means the start of fall, I am so not ready!! How about you guys? Are you secretly wishing I’m going to post a pumpkin pie recipe next week? Tell the truth.

Our meal plan this week is still all SUMMER, featuring super easy chickpea gyros, one pan red curry, kale caesar pasta salad, cajun sweet potato (and fried okra!) salad, grilled avocado quesadillas, fresh tomato sauce pasta, and my absolute favorite chewy chocolate cookies that are perfect for after school/work snacking. Happy eating!!
