Early August Meal Plan

Hello friends,

Let’s take a moment for a little mental check in before we head to recipes. While life feels like it has some routine again, these times are not easy. I am not here to spread any more stress. (THIS IS A BREAK FROM STRESS––BUT ALSO A SLIGHT INTERSTITIAL THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE.) But, I do want to acknowledge that we are all dealing with our own versions of strain. Big and small. Small and big. And everything in between. A moment of deep breathing is a good idea at least a few times a day. Try to be easy on yourself, and be easy on others. (Wow, Katie, how did you have time to pursue that psychology degree while you were learning how to develop recipes? Aw, shucks, it wasn’t anything. Thank you for asking.)

So we look for the good. My older son, Jack just graduated from college and is about to start a grown up job in another city. That sentence frankly took a lot to type, and I’m sitting here looking at it on the page. I’m super proud of him, and he’s got much to look forward to, but it’s such a time of transition. Anyway, this week he and I made a pedal-to-the metal-dinner for some family friends. Falafel and an Israeli-inspired chicken dish and different sauces and salad. And it was fun and delicious and felt like a teeny tiny little adventure. The next day I got right back into the grind. But it has been making me so happy to think about that co-cooked dinner, and also inspired to do it again. Charlie, you’re up, buddy.

All right. What am I planning to make this week? These are some of the ways I am planning to make the most of all of that sultry summer produce this week. (Also, PSA to all the Hatch heads out there . . . Hatch peppers have arrived!)
