Weekly Meal Plan + Shopping List

It’s officially Halloween week, and while we may be well past the age of costumes and candy, you better believe we’re baking some chocolate treats to mark the occasion. Reese’s peanut butter cup macarons, to be specific. To round out our menu, we’ve curated four wholesome dinners emphasizing warm comfort foods and featuring options for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.  Join us for a week of delicious eating, including a festive cocktail to sip on Halloween night.

French Chicken Casserole


Chungah of Damn Delicious describes this as “the coziest meal of 2020,” and frankly, we couldn’t agree more. You’ve got golden chicken thighs, tender baby potatoes, and an herb-wine sauce that elevates this dish to restaurant-quality status. The best part? This meal can be made in a single skillet, making post-dinner clean up an absolute breeze.

Kimchi Ramen


Everyone’s favorite bowl of ramen is getting a healthy makeover thanks to Jess of Choosing Chia. She uses kimchi (a Korean fermented cabbage, available at most major grocery stores) and tofu, with lots of vegetable broth to bring this soup together. Simply put in 30 minutes of cooking time, and you’ll have a flavorful weeknight meal to warm up any day.

Baked Ziti with Red Lentil Bolognese 


Forget everything you know about pasta bakes because this version from Chocolate for Basil is a super healthful recipe created with veggie-eaters in mind. You’ll use red lentils in place of ground beef and opt for brown rice penne noodles over traditional pasta. From there, you’ll bake, top with cheese (or skip to keep it vegan), and dish up tasty leftovers all week long.

Coconut Sweet Potato Soup with Rice


Say hello to yet another one-pot wonder that’s made for chilly fall evenings. Again, we’ll be using red lentils in lieu of meat (we love ingredient crossover!), along with sweet potatoes, rice, and creamy coconut milk. Tieghan shares instructions for both the InstantPot or stovetop, so feel free to choose your own adventure and go for it.

Apple Spice Cake with Salted Maple Caramel


This fall, we’ve baked with apples about a million different ways. But when we saw this apple spice cake from Teak & Thyme, we knew this recipe deserved a spot on our meal plan regardless. It’s topped with a salted maple caramel sauce, and we can confirm this dessert is 100% worth the calories.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Macarons


We couldn’t let Halloween come and go without an indulgent dose of chocolate on the lineup. And thanks to Sarah of Broma Bakery, we’re bringing the trick-or-treating festivities to our kitchen.  She showing us how to transform everyone’s favorite peanut butter cups into a grown-up dessert that’s all kinds of yum.

Pumpkin Spice White Russian


No matter how you’re celebrating Halloween this year, one thing is for certain: you need a good cocktail in hand. Personally, we recommend sipping this Pumpkin Spice White Russian during a scary movie marathon for the best EVER date night in.
