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!
