Rest & Relish Meal Plan –
November 5 – 11, 2018.
Rest & Relish Meal Plans include six healthy dinners with one night off for the cook! Mostly vegetarian/pescatarian meals with simple substitutions for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Thanks for following along for another Rest & Relish Meal Plan post. This week we are embracing cozy, warm meals now that the temperatures are cooling down. Feel free to alter or switch days around in the meal plan to suit your own scheduling needs!

Sheet Pan Salmon w/ Roasted Vegetables.
Preheat oven to 450°F. Wash, dry and dice preferred vegetables into similar sized pieces. Toss vegetables with olive oil, salt, pepper and any additional desired spices. Arrange in an even layer on sheet pan and roast approximately 25-28 minutes or until fork tender.
While the vegetables roast, line a separate pan with foil. Prepare salmon with desired seasonings while the vegetables roast and add to the oven to roast for approximately 15 minutes or when the fish is cooked through.
Quesadilla Night. My in-laws provided us with a lot of homegrown peppers this past week, so we are having onion and pepper quesadillas. They also brought us a huge head of cabbage, so I’m planning to create an avocado slaw to accompany our quesadillas. I’ll report back on that creation!
One Pan Wednesday. I think this is a clever thing that I definitely didn’t invent, but will happily embrace in this season of life! This Wednesday I plan to re-introduce acorn squash to the kids.
A lot of people have a love or hate relationship with winter squash (at least people I know!). The kids have not enjoyed it thus far, but I’m going to stuff the squash with their favorite things this week. Maybe some mushrooms and ground turkey? I think this may be a winner!
Crispy Fish & Chicken with Pepper Slaw. We will bake the fish and chicken with a gluten-free crust (recipe not yet created) and toss the leftover cabbage and peppers from earlier in the week to create a tangy slaw recipe.
Pizza Night. Our entire family is digging cauliflower crust pizza right now; it’s so light and flavorful! I plan to adapt my Rainbow Vegetable Hummus Flatbread using a cauliflower crust I recently found at Trader Joe’s. Serve with a green salad and enjoy!
Cook’s night off. Leftovers or out to dinner.
Charcuturie Board. We just dial it down on Sundays. Throw some stuff on a plate…make it pretty (or not) and guarantee that everyone has one thing they like on the platter. THE END!
We took family photos this afternoon and I’m hopeful that we got a few good shots. My talented friend is growing her photography hobby into a side hustle and I’m in awe of her talent. I hope to share photos soon!
