Monday - Pasta primavera with tempeh sausage
Tuesday - Red beans and rice, with a king cake for dessert.
Wednesday - Enchiladas
Thursday - Broccoli cheve soup with pesto potatoes
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - Chickpeas and dumplings soup.

We had some great weather this week, 
and I was able to get out on a hike with friends.
The tops of these mountains are my happy place these days!
(And thanks Dad for the new hiking boots!)
