I just woke up from a dream that my child and her schoolmate (they do “school” in our house during the week) drew all over the walls. Like, floor to ceiling pen. Not even crayon, which would probably wash off. PEN.
Now I’m doing that thing where I’m trying not to be mad at her because she didn’t actually do anything in real life, but I’m still kind of leftover mad from the dream.
How’s your weekend going?
We have a lot of good things on this week’s meal plan, so even if you’ve got no weekend plans going (ahem, like some of us) then you can still eat well! There’s a roasted sweet potato and kale salad with my name on it, super hearty lentil sandwiches with herbed ricotta, a totally seasonal roasted cauliflower and farro salad, immunity boosting soup, weeknight friendly peanut noodles and broccoli, and a really great vegan chili. Oh and an apple cinnamon quick bread that YOU KNOW I’ll be eating for breakfast all week.

Prep Ahead Tip: Sweet potato can be roasted 2 to 3 days in advance.
Vegan/Gluten Free Substitutions:Replace eggs with bean of choice (chickpeas work great) and omit the feta cheese to make vegan.
