These frigid weekends at home with nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to see are starting to get to me. I was never someone to really be affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder, but there’s a first year for everything. Maybe I need to buy one of those lamps?

The other mom in our pandemic homeschool pod and I were reminiscing this week about what we were doing last year at this time. It’s so weird to think back to those early coronavirus days knowing what we know now. We were so blissfully naive. I remember thinking it was probably all going to be over in a few weeks. Hah. Famous last words.

No point in dwelling on the past, though. Let’s dive into this week’s healthy vegetarian meal plan! Here’s what we’re cooking:

  • BBQ chickpea veggie rice bowls – perfect way to eat the rainbow
  • chipotle black bean burgers – love the smoky spice
  • roasted veggie fajita lettuce wraps – such an easy meal!
  • lentil soup – can be made in the instant pot (<– winning) or stovetop
  • sun-dried tomato quesadillas – very into these
  • and for dessert – CARAMEL BLONDIES, YES PLEASE

Happy eating!
