What To Cook This Week - 10-30-21

Happy Halloween weekend!

We have been stuck in the house for a few days because Remy got sent home from school with a (non-Covid) fever on Thursday. Seems like it’s just a cold and she will be ready to celebrate tomorrow, THANK GOODNESS.

Here’s what we’re cooking:

  • Starting off the week with a salad (I know), but a really good one. With roasted cauliflower, farro, pistachios, pomegranate, and a knock-out dressing, this is full of flavor and texture.
  • Next up – cacio e pepe potatoes anna. Basically a huge cheesy potato pancake topped with a fresh arugula salad.
  • On Tuesday we’re making sweet potato butternut apple soup with mascarpone cheese! This is basically a fall clean-out-the-fridge meal.
  • Kale and brussels sprout Caesar salad with parmesan toasts are happening on Wednesday and I’m excited. Those toasts are a dream.
  • Finally, we’re ending the week with my favorite eggplant parmesan burgers. These will make you rethink everything you ever knew about veggie burgers, in the best way.
  • For dessert (or brunch!), we’re making my brown butter pumpkin chai waffles. So good.

Happy eating!
