Rest & Relish Meal Plan – October 15 – 21, 2018.
This week’s meal plan is completely gluten-free with simple substitutions if needed! As I mentioned last week, we’re experimenting an elimination diet for one kid, so I’ve tried to be creative with feeding our diverse palates this week!
Thanks for following along for another Rest & Relish Meal Plan post. Sorry I’m a day late! It has been a crazy week/weekend with various family challenges. Feel free to alter or switch days around in the Rest & Relish Meal Plan to suit your own scheduling needs!
Rest & Relish Meal Plan – October 15 – 21, 2018
Sheet Pan Meal. Pecan-encrusted chicken, roasted Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes with a side salad.
Pescatarian Tip: In lieu of chicken, toss a prepared crab cake on the lower oven rack during the last 10 minutes of baking.
Pizza Night. It’s another busy Tuesday, so I’m tossing some pizzas in the oven and whipping up a quick salad. The girls will have a Caulipower pizza and the boys will enjoy a traditional pizza. I love a simple chopped salad on pizza night too!
Black Bean Tostadas. ANOTHER busy weeknight calls for an easy Mexican meal. Mexican is always the way to go when your family has multiple likes/dislikes/intolerances.
Meal Prep Tip: I recommend whipping up the black bean spread the night before while the pizzas are cooking. You’ll thank yourself today!
Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry. I’m trying out a new recipe that I’m hoping the whole family will enjoy. Wish me luck! In the meantime, check out this Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup for your own meal planning.
Gnocchi with Homemade Arrabiatta Sauce. We have a surplus of peppers from friends and family right now, so an Arrabiatta Sauce is a great way to enjoy hot peppers in a kid-friendly way.
All you need to do is thinly slice garlic and hot peppers, then saute in olive oil for a few minutes. Add a large can of chopped tomatoes to the pan, season with salt, pepper and herbs and cook approximately 30 minutes on low to meld the flavors. Toss the sauce with your favorite pasta or gnocchi!
Cook’s night off. Leftovers or out to dinner.
Grazing Platter. If you’ve been following these meal plans, you’ll know I don’t typically cook a big dinner on Sundays. We often eat out following church for Sunday lunch and one or both kids have Scouts on Sunday evenings.
Grazing platters are great for low-key nights! Follow my Grazing Tables board on Pinterest for some inspiration for your own easy family night!
