Yikes—it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving! Actually, this means almost nothing to me since I am not cooking anything. I am, however, stressed as hell about traveling Wednesday after work—me and everyone else. So it goes. There will be a lot of deep breathing going on.

Needless to say, there will not be a ton of cooking going on, but here are a few easy recipes if you’re itching to try something new but don’t want to sesame roasted broccoli make a big effort over the next few days.

1.) Deep-Dish Pancake a la Kath. I finally figured out what to do with the bag of Kodiak Cakes mix in my cupboard. I’ve been taking 1/3 cup mix, 1 tbsp ground flax, 1/8 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup cranberries, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice and mixing it with 1/3 cup water in a ramekin or bowl. 2-3 rounds of 45-second intervals in the microwave and breakfast is ready. I love it topped with ricotta (mixed with more pumpkin). It’s also great with a few of those Trader Joe’s peanut butter chips thrown in the batter.

2.) Seasame-Roasted Broccoli. I don’t really have a formal recipe for this, but I just wanted to talk about how delicious it is. All you do is chop broccoli into florets and toss with sesame oil. Roast at 400 degrees F until crispy, ~40 minutes.

3.) A hearty oatmeal breakfast. Here are some of my favorites—also great to make on Sunday night to bring to work the next day!
