Thanks for all your feedback on the desks! I’m leaning towards #1 but a few of you also shared other options I want to explore first. Operation desk continues….
Since I’ve been back from vacation (oh yeah…I still haven’t shared pictures…are you guys still interested in seeing pictures??) I’ve been running to the grocery store before almost every lunch and dinner to grab food. Not ideal. Time to get back on the meal-planning band wagon. And thanks to Melissa for reminding me that (a) I need to do meal planning and (b) we need to all do group meal planning! 🙂
This is what I have lined up for the week.
S – grilled chicken legs + asparagus (my boyfriend made all this. he brushed the chicken with white vinegar & sprinkled with coarse ground pepper before cooking.)
M – Pan Roasted Pear Salad with Goat Cheese & Shrimp – I made this recipe, left out the frisee (couldn’t find it) and almonds (wasn’t feeling it) and added shrimp for some protein.
T – Baked Italian Style Cauliflower (thanks for the suggestion Anna! I LOVED it!)
W – Pan-Seared Chicken Breast with simple spinach salad
Th – Linguine with Lemon & Pine Nuts + broccoli
F – wing it.
Three of these links are only available with an online membership to Cooks’ Illustrated. I’ve always loved their magazine but my friend Courtney finally convinced me after visiting her in Seattle that the $30 annual membership fee to access their online database is soooo worth it. So I apologize that you can’t get the full recipes. But hopefully you’ll get some ideas in the comment section from other readers or you’ll be inspired to sign up yourself. (Nope, I don’t get a kickback; Cooks’ Illustrated doesn’t even know I exist. But their pan-seared salmon recipe is worth the $30 alone.)
So, your turn to share: whatcha cooking up this week? Leave links please! I’ve pin almost everything you guys have shared in the past because it all sounds so yummy. 🙂
