Meal Plan Monday: Halloween Week

Sharing is caring!

Don’t let the title fool you. I don’t really get into Halloween. I won’t be dressing up or decorating my yard. I will spend a few hours passing out candy and visiting with our neighbors. You see, in our neighborhood Halloween is the one night a year all of our neighbors get together and catch up. We all sit outside in our driveways and pass out candy. It’s a lot of fun.

Since it’s Halloween week I may bake a few treats but I have even more treats in store for my readers including a giveaway and a surprise new program. I’m extremely excited about both.

Plant-Based Meal Plan


I just can’t get enough apples. We eat them all year but they taste best in the fall.


My youngest son and I usually eat leftovers or something quick. I pack a lunch for my 5 year old to eat at school.

  • Baked Potatoes
  • Pasta and a simple sauce
  • Chickpea Salad and raw veggies
  • Veggie Soup and salad
  • Leftover Chili


My husband has requested 3 things this week (the first 3 on the dinner menu). He doesn’t ask for much so I usually try to accommodate his request.

If you have food allergies you may have heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project. It was started by the Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET) a few years ago. Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) spread the word this year. Read more about it here.

What are you plans for Halloween? Do you throw a party, hand out candy or turn off your lights and hide inside your house?

If I lived somewhere colder I’m sure we’d have a different tradition. I’d love to hear about yours.

  1. The top two recipes in your pics look VERY yummy – but I don’t see the top left one listed in your meal plan (I’m guessing that the top right one is the soon-to-come Fiesta Pasta?). Where can I find the top left one?

    • Hi Anna, The top left is the Chickpea Salad. The “Sweet” version is pictured but we will be making the Savory version for sandwiches. Both are delicious, it just depends on what we are in the mood for. It calls for a vegan mayo so it’s not one of our healthiest recipes but my hubby is craving it. 🙂
