vegetarian meal plan – week 41


Can I just say that I am stunned that we are only at week 41 of this year. Shouldn’t it be way closer to 50 by now? Kidding… grateful to still have both October and November ahead of us. Best. Time. Of. Year.

In the kitchen, my quest to make new things continues. I reached official rut-stage way back in like March and the new season and cooler weather (!!!) has me all energized. It may seem like a whole lotta food for one week, but we eat maybe 3-4 meals out of 21 out of the house and do you know how often a 14 year-old eats? Also… breaking my meal plan up by ingredient rather than meal so that you have a better idea of how things map to your ingredient use.
