hello september + a meal plan

We hurdled the I-don’t-know-how-many days of consecutive over-100° days, the last of summer, the start of classes for the 14yo, and a birthday that ticked her up to an official fifteen years of age. I am feeling super-nostalgic and sappy these days and bracing myself for the whirlwind of activity that the fall will bring. I’ll be using the humble sheet pan to help me with quick meals this week and sticking to easy weekday meals for our first full week of classes and activities.

We have managed to cook at home for every meal so far this month and I am trying to see how far I can get before turning to takeout.

Tuesday – leftovers

Wednesday – Spaghetti + Caesar Salads

Thursday – Picadillo Tacos + Side Salads with Lime/Cumin Vinaigrette

Friday – Summer Veggie Burgers + Roasted Okra

Saturday – Bowls: Roasted Veggies + Grain + Protein + Greens + Dressing TBD

Snacks will consist of lots of fresh cut fruit, pumpkin bread, some popsicles and trays of roasted veggies.

P.S. I have been on an Instagram hiatus, so be sure to tune into the blog if you want to see what I am up to in the kitchen.
