Can’t believe it’s September! And it’s really feeling like it. It seems like some kind of switch clicked and all of a sudden the weather went from sweltering to temperate and lovely. Very strange. 

I’m still into summery foods but there are some soul-warming comfort food meals snuck into this week’s meal plan that I think you’re going to love.

Here’s what we’re cooking this week!

  • Starting off the week with a big pot of the best roasted poblano and white bean chili. It’s hearty, toothsome, and just an all around feel good food.
  • Next up – roasted tomato bucatini with burrata and basil vinaigrette. Still has hints of summer and bright flavors, but is also smothered in burrata.
  • Palak paneer is a really fresh and vegetable-centric take on this Indian food classic. So fabulous.
  • Butternut squash and smoky black bean salad is a long time Eats Well With Others reader favorite! It’s sweet, smoky, and totally addictive (even for a salad).
  • Finally, we’re ending the week with my minestrone verde. It’s an all green version of this Italian soup stable and will warm you up from the inside out.
  • For dessert, we’re making double peanut chocolate chip monster cookies! Great for after school snacking.

Happy eating!

One Response to What To Cook This Week – 9/4/21

  1. Omg, I love everything burrata. It’s one of my favorite things in the world! I buy it every week and eat it on a piece of toasted sourdough bread with sundried tomato pesto. Also love the green minestrone with the anneli pasta and the cookies. Yum

    I’m guessing it was Remy’s first week of school? I’m sure she is doing great!
