I made my meal plan for the week on a rainy, blustery day. Sweet Pea and I went puddle-stomping, then took a warming shower before settling down for a lovely lunch… beef stew leftovers while listening to Norah Jones croon through our I-Pod speaker. Then Sweet Pea burrowed under Load #5 of laundry for the day as it came fresh from the dryer. “Cozy!” she announced, heaping the warm pajamas and blankets over herself. In a word: it’s been a heavenly day.
Well, you can definitely see the weather’s influence in my meal plan for the week. I am more than happy to send my crockpot into overdrive. Woo-hoo!

The Random: Not making a “random” this week, as I’ll be making the Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup intended for last week.
Vegetarian: kale, leek, and mushroom frittata (maybe with hash browns on the side)
Pantry Challenge: chicken pot pie (sautéed veggies and chicken, mixed in with homemade cream-of-whatever soup and then bound up and baked in the pie crust recipe of your choice).
The Big Easy: Crockpot Lasagna with sautéed beet greens and apple slices
Pizza/Pasta: pasta with kale pesto and leftover proteins and veggies
