We are gearing up for Halloween next week and by that I mean, buying bags of mini Reese’s to eat by ourselves after Remy goes to sleep. We won’t be doing any trick or treating but will likely have an outside get-together with Remy’s home school-mate and one other friend from her old daycare. Masks non-negotiable.
This week’s meal plan is HERE and features: roasted vegetable stacked enchiladas, butternut and leek soup, minestrone soup (made in the Instant Pot!!), slow cooker black bean ragout on roasted sweet potatoes, wild rice and sweet potato kale salad, and easy sesame noodles. Happy eating!!
