What To Cook This Week - Week 19

Just over here living that new baby life with spit up all over all the things (my hair, every piece of clothing I own, crevices of our apartment I didn’t even know existed), baby lullabies on repeat, and my house in a complete and total state of disarray. HOWEVER, Nico grew out of his first outfit this week (!!!) and is starting to be way more awake, which is great except for when he refuses to nap for hours on end. Thankfully he’s so chill that even when he’s incredibly overtired he kind of just stares calmly at everything and makes grumbly noises but rarely actually cries. I’ll take it. 

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend! I know that for some people this holiday can bring up very mixed feelings, so lots of hugs to everyone regardless of your feelings on the day.

Here’s what we’re cooking this week:

  • Starting off the week with a loaded pinto bean and tortilla soup. This is best with ALL THE TOPPINGS, so make sure you pile ’em on.
  • Next up – spiced chickpea stew with burnt lemon and string beans. So much fresh flavor for spring!
  • On Tuesday we’re making baked green enchilada quesadillas – aka the best way to make quesadillas for a crowd. Could not be easier.
  • Spicy cherry tomato and feta pasta is making our Wednesday that much better.
  • Finally, we’re closing out the week with paneer tikka masala – my dream meal.
  • For dessert we’re making buttery vanilla cupcakes with raspberry buttercream! Sprinkles not optional.

Happy eating!
