Meal Plan (aka procrastinating)

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I have had the laziest weekend ever! I know we all need them every once in awhile, but geez. I feel like a bum (as I type this in my pjs...).

Ordinarily, I would start with a future meal, but last night's dinner was so good, I thought I'd post the link for the recipe.
Spicy Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

I went a little heavy on the cayenne, but man was this good. Instead of adding the filling onto the 'spaghetti,' I scraped the spaghetti into the pan with the filling, mixed it around, and then put it back into the skin and topped it with cheese. Since it was all hot already, I just broiled it for a few minutes to melt the cheese. J made sure I saved the recipe so we could make it again.

Tofu stir fry (no recipe, I just kind of throw stuff together)

Monday: Falafel with Tzatziki

I made the tzatziki today since it recommends making it a few hours in advance. We'll serve them with salads (possibly with the homemade flatbread from my last food blog since J really liked those)

I also need to make soup tomorrow. I'm still deciding between these two. It's supposed to rain most of this week, so soup will be nice.
Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

Grilled Barbecued Chicken with Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter

Barbecue sauce recipe is J's. It's sweet and spicy and has bourbon in it.

J is working, so I'll either have soup or make tofu stir fry again.

J will have finished up his certificate program. We may go out for dinner to celebrate or make homemade grilled pizza or this recipe: Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squahs Boats with Grilled Chicken

J is working. I'll do soup or leftovers.

Also of note, Kroger had pineapples on sale for 99c!! I bought 4. And then ate 3/4 of one yesterday...

Hope everyone has a great week :)

    It sounds like you have some delicious meals planned. I need to start cooking more often. I get lazy because I live alone. but it is way better to cook healthy meals than to just nibble which is what I often end up doing...

    Let me know how your tziki turns out. Last time I made some it tasted good, but wasn't thick enough because of the water content of the cucumber.

And I vote you do the sweet potato, black bean chili. Looks very similar to the recipe I used and it's amazing. (I swapped out half the sweet potatoes and 1 of the cans of black beans for equal amount of diced chicken so that it had protein) Be ready to add some extra water, with mine, the sweet potatoes absorb lots of it and it ended up thicker than stew my first attempt (still delicious, second round was actually chili)

    Looks like a good plan! Funny we both have a "J". :) I love spring, there's so many good deals on produce popping up right now.
