Weekly Menu Plan + Shopping List

We blinked, and somehow it’s already the last week of September. Fall produce has found its way into our kitchens, and despite the warmer temps, we’re more than ready to include a soup or two on the menu.

This week, we’re focused on all things seasonal eating, with apples, sweet potatoes, and figs in heavy rotation. We’ve aimed to minimize your grocery list with tons of ingredient crossover, and we have several E-A-S-Y dinners recipes (plus an apple bourbon cocktail!) to whip up in a pinch.

 

WEEKNIGHT MENU FAVORITES

Easy Baked Ziti

 

Whenever carbs and cheese join forces, it’s safe to assume you have a delicious meal on your hands. However, this super easy baked ziti also sneaks in a full pound of fresh spinach, so it’s a meal you can feel good about, too. Serve it up with a seasonal side salad, and we’d quality this vegetarian meal as “healthy’ any day of the week.

Sweet Potato and Coconut Curry Soup

 

When cravings for a spicy soup night strikes, this is the one to turn to. You’ll be using a blend of curry powder, garam masala, turmeric, ginger, cumin, and chili powder, and believe us when we say this blend packs a flavor punch. Make a double batch for leftovers, and don’t forget the coconut flakes to top.

Skillet Pork Chops With Apples & Onions

 

Nothing says fall like a good skillet dinner, and this one involves the ultimate combo of sliced apples and onions with the juiciest cider-brined pork chops. The best part? It all comes together in roughly 20 minutes.

Sweet Potato Tortilla Soup

 

Sometimes you just need comfort in a bowl, and this sweet potato tortilla soup is just the ticket. It’s made with ingredients you probably already have stocked in your kitchen, and did we mention it’s both gluten-free and vegan-approved?

 

 

BRUNCH

Grilled Cinnamon Toast with Figs and Ricotta

 

Sure, egg dishes get all the love at brunch, but we’d argue that toast is a much more underrated contender. Not only is toast super easy to customize for the season (hello, figs + ricotta + cinnamon), but there’s virtually no cooking required. Just consider this the grown-up version of the cinnamon toast crunch we ALL ate as kids.

 

TO BAKE

Apple Blondies with a Hot Toddy Glaze

 

Fall bakers, we’ve found the ultimate recipe to try following your trip to the orchard. It involves all the best autumn flavors, with cinnamon, vanilla, and fresh apples galore. Plus, if you’re feeling adventurous, there’s also a honey and whiskey-laced Hot Toddy Glaze that takes this whole situation to the next level.

 

TO SIP

Bourbon Apple Cider

 

If you ask us, it’s not officially fall until we’ve had the perfect cup of cider. Add a bit of bourbon, a dash of cinnamon, a squeeze of orange, and a sprig of rosemary, give it all a shake, and voila!
