Good Food for One or Two

By Value Guru, September 19, 2010  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Value Guru
Just because you're cooking for just one or two doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste or health for your convenience. And eating well doesn't have to take a toll on your time or your budget. See what we mean with this meal plan straight from the pages of The Whole Deal value guide. You get a week's worth of supper ideas and recipes that are simple to prepare, have your health and your wallet in mind and best of all…they taste great! MONDAY: Veggie Monday Spread warm refried beans over a tostada, top with a fried egg, spoon salsa all over and serve with a quick lettuce, fresh corn and cherry tomato salad. TUESDAY: 2010 Comfort Food Make pesto. Don't know how? Start out with our "Learn to Cook" Simple Pesto recipe. Toss pasta with pesto and broccoli. Freeze leftover pesto (like money in the bank!) or use it on a sandwich tomorrow. WEDNESDAY: Midweek Grilling Grill our simple Tangy Grilled Pork Chops with Pears and Blue Cheese. Serve with wilted greens and your favorite whole grain. THURSDAY: Salad for Supper Make Quinoa Salad with Chicken, Grapes and Almonds. For a shortcut, pick up a rotisserie chicken, saving the remaining chicken for lunch tomorrow. FRIDAY: Date Night TGIF with a simple romantic meal (cheaper than a restaurant!) of smoked salmon and Cypress Grove Li'l Ziggy cheese. Add a salad, baguette, grapes and wine! WEEKEND: Summer Send-Off Grill chicken sausage kabobs with loads of veggies. You'll find a coupon for $1.00 off The Original Brat Hans Sausages (or Wieners or Meatballs) on page A9 of the in-store The Whole Deal. Ask guests to bring sides. Designate a cupcake maker to bake Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cupcakes with Orange-Cream Frosting. Got any more good food ideas or recipes that feed one or two well? Please share! We'd love to hear them and I'm sure our readers would too!

A little off topic here but what theme are you using? Looks pretty cool :) I use zBench on my blog but I'm thinking of buying some premium themes for my future blogs. Barry.

It was certainly extremely generous with people like you to deliver without restraint precisely what most of us would've sold as an electronic book to help with making some cash for their own end, certainly considering that you might well have tried it if you desired. The strategies additionally served to become fantastic way to know that the rest have the same interest just like my very own to figure out much more with respect to this issue. Certainly there are lots of more pleasant moments in the future for those who read through your blog.

Thanks for the helpful write-up. It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an very long latency time, which means that the signs of the disease might not emerge until eventually 30 to 50 years after the primary exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, that is the most common style and is affecting the area around the lungs, might cause shortness of breath, breasts pains, and a persistent cough, which may result in coughing up blood vessels.
