I think it's really time for me to learn how to cook. M's work has been leaving him exhausted, disinterested in cooking dinner, and yearning for fast food (or expensive "gourmet" delivery aka Cheesecake Factory), which is bad, because I want to lose weight and I want to save money. So I've spent the past 2 hours compiling a list of healthy, easy, and fast recipes (I should be studying, but I've been having so much fun checking out allrecipes.com! ;))...
M doesn't like food plans (he thinks they're restrictive), so I'm going to make this flexible. I'm also going to earmark two days for fast food/delivery/dining out. Also, although last week I had time to do the dishes every day (had a few days off), I usually only have the time/energy to do it once during the week. So it'll be nice to have a couple days of no mess!
I'm aiming for 2 vegetarian meals, 1-2 fish meals, 1 chicken meal, and 1 red meat dinners per week. This is what I'm thinking about for this week (3/8-3/14):
--btw, these are all supposed to take only 15 mins prep AND cook time!!--
- Greek garbanzo bean salad (can eat for a few days)
- Asparagus and tofu stir fry
- Steamed halibut with bok choy
- Stir fried chicken and asparagus
