Meatless Monday: Zucchini-Corn Fritters

Labor Day is the worst. For me, it has always marked the end of summer. No more pool days, no more white pants, goodbye 9pm sunsets, goodbye barbeques!

So it’s gotten to that point in the year when I buy 75% of my groceries at the Farmer’s Market. Basically, I’m eating a ton of veggies. This is what most of my weekday meals look like.

Meatless Monday: Lemon-Basil Breakfast Hash

Told you guys I had a Meatless Monday post waiting for ya! And it involves mini peppers and mini potatoes…because mini is always cuter, right? Despite the fact that I just called this dish cute, it’s actually a pretty hearty meal. Potatoes are pretty filling, but since they’re so starchy and carby, they’re not the … Continue reading
