HELLO, I’ve turned into a CNN addict, can you tell?
Like, I really want this election to be called BUT I’m also really going to miss my new best friends John King, Wolf Blitzer, Jake Tapper, Dana Bash, Van Jones, Anderson Cooper, etc. I would ask them to move in with me but, you know. Corona.
How are you all faring during this strenuous time?
Here’s our meal plan for the week! It features: an autumn arugula salad, cauliflower parm, vegan pumpkin curry, warm halloumi and apple salad, slow cooker quinoa chili, and Tuscan farro and white bean kale stew. Stay safe and happy eating!
