I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving week and the last full week of November! The holidays always kind of sneak up on me. 🙂 I’m finishing my shopping this week and hoping to be done with it before Dec. 1. (If you need some gift ideas for a friend, sister, or yourself, I have 20 favorites HERE!)

These are the easy Fall dinners in week 3 of the 6-week Fall Meal Plan I put together! For $20, the Fall Meal Plan includes 6 weeks of healthy, fall-inspired breakfasts, lunches & dinners planned out for you plus weekly grocery lists. I can’t tell you how nice it was using the grocery list for my shopping week 1 — it made things SO much easier!

If these dinners sound good to you, grab the Fall Meal Plan HERE! It’s full of recipes and meal like these. So healthy, a lot of one-pot/one-pan dinners, full of Fall favors…yum.

Here are this week’s dinners:

{This week I’m sharing 5 dinners, in no order, so it’s flexible for what day we feel like making them.}

Cheesy Enchilada Rice Skillet from Damn Delicious. This dinner comes together really quickly if you remember to cook rice beforehand. I like making Brown Jasmine Rice in the Instant Pot about half an hour before making dinner so the rice is ready.

Pasta with Pesto, Asparagus, Peas & Sausage. This is another really quick dinner. The longest part is waiting for the water to boil for the pasta. 😉 This dinner is also easy to tweak depending on your family’s favorite veggies. Broccoli, tomatoes and brussel sprouts area all great in this.

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries. YUM. These have quickly become one of our favorite dinners. So quick. So easy. So delicious. We like using Trader Joe’s frozen sweet potato fries, but you can easily cut sweet potatoes into fry-size and make your own. Topped with black beans, a little cheese (try Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar!), corn, tomatoes, guac, yogurt, black olives, cilantro. I’m already looking forward to this dinner!

Crustless Veggie + Sausage Pizza from Simply Real Eating. This is a really easy recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks Simply Real Eating. It really does taste like a crustless pizza. The girls love it too.

Mediterranean Salmon from The Roasted Root + lemon roasted broccoli. For the broccoli: mix 1 large clove of garlic, juice of 1 lemon, salt & pepper, extra virgin olive oil, then coat broccoli florets with it. Roast in a 400-degree oven for 12-15 minutes until the broccoli is slightly browned.
