Menu Plan Monday: 1/16 - 1/22

It's time for another edition of Menu Plan Monday! My husband is out of town for a few days on a business trip so it's just Peanut and I. When he's away, I tend to make recipes I've been wanting to try, but that I know he wouldn't enjoy because of a certain ingredient, texture or flavor. That's definitely the case this week. While we miss him terribly, I'm excited to try some of these dishes. I may end up switching things from one day to the other depending on my mood. Lunches will be dinner leftovers.

Monday: Fiery Shrimp with Bok Choy & Rice (from the new Weight Watchers One Pot cookbook)

Tuesday: Mushroom & Lentil Stroganoff (vegan)

Wednesday: Turkey Biryani (from the "meals for one" article in Weight Watchers Magazine Jan/Feb 2012)

Thursday: Hot Spinach Salad (from the article mentioned above)

Friday: pizza night

Saturday: cheeseburgers, oven fries

Sunday: grilled chicken salads with all the fixins'

Do you cook differently when a member of your family is away or when you're cooking for one?

I can't wait to see what all of you are eating this week!


  1. When my hubby is gone to class (he goes one night a week for 4 hrs) I do sometimes cook differently. He does NOT like rice (crazy, right?). So, I'll make stir fry or mexican rice. I've been craving a chicken and rice casserole so I might just make that next week on his school night! Thanks for stopping by my place!

  2. Ooh, I'd like to hear how you guys liked the mushroom and lentil stroganaff! It sounds really good!
