We are entering the wild and wacky world of children’s organized team sports today! Yes, that’s right. REMY IS STARTING TEE-BALL.

I’m sure it’s going to be alternately cute and hilarious because that girl has minimal hand-eye coordination. I can’t wait!

Now, let’s start meal planning. Here’s what we’ve got this week:

  • one pot garlicky chard with chickpeas – gotta love a meal that’s so pretty and only uses one pot
  • israeli power salad with za’atar roasted sweet potatoes – all the big heart eyes for za’atar!
  • summer corn and heirloom tomato fettuccine – can’t stop won’t stop eating tomatoes
  • summer vegetable red curry – lick the bowl good
  • vegan orange tofu – so sticky delicious

Happy eating!

But still. NINE AM.

I can’t remember the last time I felt so rested.

Hi friends! Any fun labor day plans??

I’ll be spending two out of three days in the hospital – today with my mother who just had knee surgery and tomorrow for work. Fingers crossed that things will be quiet because everyone will have left for the holiday weekend!

We’ve still got some summery eats on our meal plan this week to keep the spirit alive. Here’s what we’re cooking:

  • late summer harvest bowls with kale pesto – eat the rainbow!
  • fajita omelettes – always love breakfast-for-dinner
  • tempeh and chickpea sloppy joes – can be made in 30 minutes!
  • skillet brown rice and beans topped with heirloom tomato salsa – gotta eat all the tomatoes while we can
  • curried chickpea salad – perfect for easy lunches

Happy eating!
