Happy Saturday! With summer on it’s way I think that it’s time to really delve into summer-time flavors. This week’s meal plan features plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, some grilled chicken, and delicious spinach artichoke enchiladas that even meat-lovers will enjoy.
I am beyond excited for today as Bry and I are doing a 30-mile walk around Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. When we found out we would be moving to Colorado, we started making a bucket list of things to do before we left. And this walk was the first thing on that list. If you’ve ever been to Boston then you know that it’s a walking city. Yes there’s the T, but reliability of it isn’t always great and good luck trying to park your car anywhere in the city. Plus, with each neighborhood being so distinctly different, you truly have to walk the city in order to feel like you belong here.
While the walk is a way for us to reminisce about the amazing 8 years we spent out here, it’s also the perfect excuse to stop at all our favorite restaurants and coffee shops. For sure on the list: coffee with a Greek yogurt parfait from Three Little Figs and a cannoli from Modern Pastry in the North End. Be sure to check back next Friday for a recap of our Boston walk!

Sunday Game Plan
For this week’s meal prep, the plan is to assemble all the recipes, but wait to actually bake the beet burgers and enchiladas until Monday and Tuesday night. Fore the chicken, you’ll notice that the tacos use grilled chicken while the salad uses baked chicken. If you don’t have a grill, I recommend baking both sets of chicken at the same time on Sunday night. If you do have a grill, then you have the option to instead grill all of you chicken as well as the vegetables for the salad. Just note that the chicken salad uses corn kernels, so if you end up grilling you will want to buy whole corn stalks instead.

I’m intrigued by these beet burgers. As a beet lover, I might have to look into them!
Definitely give them a try Lisa! I’ve converted a few beet-haters with them. The key is letting them firm up in the fridge overnight as they fall apart quickly.
