Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Our Saturday was very slow but it was also just what we needed. We’re in the process of transitioning out of naps which is good in one way {earlier bedtimse}, but also harder in other ways {more challenging afternoons}. And then we’re adding in the time change which was maybe not the best plan. Wish us luck this week!


my plan is to share the meals I made the previous week, with links if possible, as some inspiration for your own menu planning.

MONDAY- Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup with sourdough – we love starting our week off with a  comforting soup night. It just feels so right, especially during our cold season.

TUESDAY- Taco Skillet Bake- This was so easy and a nice mix-up from our typical taco night. We sauteed zucchini and bell peppers, added ground beef and seasonings, and then topped it with cheese and baked until bubbling. We served it with avocado, cilantro, and salsa and the kiddos dug in with tortilla chips.

WEDNESDAY- Kale and Mint Salad with Peanut Vinaigrette– This recipe is so delicious! We love the vinaigrette so much! You could serve it with shredded chicken or even sauteed shrimp.

THURSDAY- Salmon Milano with Lemon-Basil Pesto- I love an easy dinner! We just topped salmon with a lemon-basil pesto and roasted it for 12 minutes. Served with a salad, this was a healthy and easy dinner.

FRIDAY- Skinny Chicken Parmesan with Brussels Sprout Salad with Anchovy Tahini & Za’atar ChickpeasThis recipe is similar to what we made although I used almond flour and tapioca starch with parsley for the breading.  This brussels sprout salad was so yummy for the adults and I’m planning on making it again this week since I have leftovers of the tahini. The kids weren’t the biggest fans but we’ll see what they think when they try it next time.

SATURDAY- Date Night Pork Chops with Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes- These pork chops are one of Matthew’s favorite meals ever! We’ve made it a handful of times. Don’t skip the fennel and lemon zest and herb salad – both are musts!

SUNDAY- Clams in White Wine with toasted bread- It will be very similar to this recipe, minus the pasta although that looks so yummy!

For breakfast one morning, I made the most delicious baked oatmeal recipe for the kids. It was inspired by this recipe I found online and I’ll definitely be making it again!

My hair has been growing like crazy these days and I’ve been needing to keep it up and out of reach from baby Beatrice. I bought these claw clips on Amazon and love their neutral color options and the larger size. It’s been so nice to have something that easily holds all my hair.

I’ve been loving basics from PACT. Their pieces are made with organic cotton and they’ve held up so well. I got this shell in oat along with the matching joggers and cardigan.

Speaking of PACT, they’re having a Daylight Savings Sale (there’s a sale for everything!). Use code LONGDAYS to save up to 25%!

There’s a denim sale going on at Everlane. I love this style right now in Vintage Indigo or Folsom Blue.


Friday night we had a game night which was so fun! We played a few new games, Otrio and Bird Bingo. Both were so fun!

Pi Day is this week (Tuesday 3.14), so I’m planning which pie to make. Since we’re trying to be lowish carbs these days I’m looking in my Sweet Laurel cookbook for inspiration. I heard the pecan pie recipe is really good, Augustine wants pumpkin pie, I’m tempted by the s’mores pie, but Matthew is a huge fan of coconut cream. We’ll see what we decide!

I’m starting to put together a spring edit of favorites but I wanted to share some of what I’ve found on Shopbop. Looking at spring pieces makes me so excited for the warmer weather to come!
