Hi Folks! We’re off to Amsterdam this afternoon and looking forward to a weekend of marathon running (Paul) canal exploring (me) and general good times. You can follow our Amsterdam adventures on instagram!
Since we won’t get home until Monday afternoon, I won’t have time to do the usual meal prep for the week, so next week’s meal plan is mostly about things I’ve got already made and stashed away in the freezer. I’ve still got some zucchini fritters, lentil loaf, and some of this delish strata on hand, so other than roasting some squash and steaming some broccoli, which I’ll do on Monday evening, meal prep for the week is already done. Pow!
