Happy first day of spring!!!
As Remy keeps reminding me. She also has somehow discovered that Easter is two weeks away and made it very clear that she strongly believes we will be hiding jelly bean-stuffed plastic eggs around the house. I guess that means I should probably buy those things???? Unlike last year when we were on complete lockdown and basically pretended Easter wasn’t happening. Progress!!
This week’s meal plan has a little spring food, a little comfort, and a lot of pantry staples. Let’s dive in! Here’s what we’re cooking this week:
- coconut curry lentils with roasted cauliflower – would be so content with a big bowl of this
- lentil stuffed peppers – the cutest stuffed pepper packages!
- chickpea and vegetable stir fry – so easy, perfect for a fridge clean out meal
- minestrone soup – slurp!
- easy vegan black bean tacos – full of pantry staples
- and the best lemon and almond cake for dessert!!
