This has been an exciting week at our house! There has been so much going on it has kept us on our toes. We had our driveway finished, so we had all kinds of construction equipment in our yard. We also moved my garden to the new house, which was an adventure! I have to admit it doesn’t seem to have liked being moved, but it is the end of the season so the risk seemed worth it. Also moving the garden officially marks the end of moving!
I am going to make some changes to the meal plan this week…. I am not going to include the shopping list. 🙈 It takes a lot of time to put together and I’m not sure anyone is really downloading it. If you LOVE the shopping list, please let me know and I will think about doing it again. Leave a comment bellow letting me know what you think!
A quick recap on how this meal plan works. There will be 1 meal prepped lunch for grown ups, 3 dinners with leftovers every other night. One of the dinners will be vegetarian/ vegan. This is a tiny step we are taking to try and lower our impact on the planet.
What’s on the menu………
- Nourish Buddha Bowl with Tahini Harissa Dressing
- Everything Bagel Salmon
- Slow Cooker Fall Harvest Chili
- Paleo Lasagna
Nourish Buddha Bowl With Tahini Harissa Dressing
10 lunches https://jessicainthekitchen.com/nourish-buddha-bowl/
This salad was simple to make, and I loved the slightly spicy dressing. The dressing was really more like a hummus. I chose to shred the purple cabbage in the same way as the carrots, and mix it in with the carrots and quinoa. If you look at the recipe, they make this as a mason jar salad and they prep all the dressing on the bottom of the jar. I decided just to leave it off and add it each day. Also if you look a the recipe, it has a little toggle so you can customize how many servings you want to make.
Everything Bagel Salmon

I am OBSESSED with everything bagel seasoning. So this recipe immediately jumped out at me. This is so easy to put together, and the best thing is the whole meal was cooked in the oven. I served it with asparagus and wedged potatoes. I cooked them the same way as I did with the lamb roast I posted a few weeks ago. I will post the link bellow. I also served it with an avocado yogurt sauce. So easy, so yummy, totally worth a try.

Slow Cooker Fall Harvest Chili
4-6 adult meals, 2 toddler meals https://freshapron.com/slow-cooker-fall-harvest-chili/#tasty-recipes-1677-jump-target
Fall means chili. Every year my family has a chili cook off to celebrate the first snow, and it can get pretty competitive. While I won’t be sharing my chili cook off winning recipe, I am very happy to share this one. As far as vegetarian chili’s go, this one was very filling and had great flavor. It had all kinds of veggies hidden in it, which is great for feeding kids. I also like to have corn bread with my chili. Normally I am a from scratch kind of girl, but when I went to buy the ingredients I saw a boxed cornbread and that sounded like the right amount of effort. Asher loved helping me make it.

We love this lasagna, and have been making it for years. The recipe calls for a paleo noodle, but I’ve never been able to find it in stores. So I actually substitute it with thinly sliced eggplant. Don’t be scared away by the cashew cream. It is easy to make and really is delicious. If you are cutting out dairy, this is the meal for you!
I hope you enjoy this weeks meals! If you really miss the shopping list, please leave a comment bellow. If you try anything out I’d love to hear from you. Please like, share, and enjoy!
