It’s the last week and final menu plan of the year, people! You’ll find some cozy favorites, a game day recipe, and a few items that are good for a crowd. Check out the shopping list at the bottom of the page. 

 

SHAKSHUKA WITH SWISS CHARD

 

A North African egg dish that’s delicious (and perfect if you have vegetarians in the house).  It’s a one-dish supper that I like to serve with pita, naan, or a crusty loaf of bread. A spoonful of Greek yogurt on the side is a nice addition as well. 

PROSCIUTTO ARUGULA LAVASH PIZZA

One of the easiest (and first) recipes on the blog and it still remains a personal favorite that I make whenever I have a pizza craving. Any vegetable side will do here, but I’m partial to this Brussels Sprouts Salad, which makes an excellent leftover if you don’t manage to eat it all. 

SLOW COOKER PORK TINGA TACOS

Do up a pot of pork tinga in your slow cooker and set it out with taco fixings for an easy meal. I prefer corn tortillas with these, but flour are fair game too.


NO-BAKE ALMOND BUTTER BARS WITH DARK CHOCOLATE 

I discovered these gorgeous bars from the Alternative Baker cookbook this year and have baked many batches since. They’re healthy enough to give a good energy boost, but feel like a true treat. 

CALIFORNIA QUESO WITH CRISPY BROCCOLI

If you’ve got plans to sit in front of a bowl game this week, make a pot of California Queso. It’s creamy good and heaps healthier than the nacho cheese dip you’ll find at a football stadium.
