Weekday Dinner Ideas

Sunday already, time to get going on weekday dinner plans.  The asparagus that's $1.99 a pound at both Sprouts and Sunflower through Wednesday seems to be heavily influencing my thinking (maybe because I need a bit of a break from my Munson's corn fetish).  Tomorrow will be asparagus and leek risotto with prosciutto from Bon Appetit.  Whole Foods usually has chunks of prosciutto that are good for cooking, at a considerably lower price than they charge for the freshly sliced product.

Tuesday is our usual repeat of something big made over the weekend, which this week is the cod adaptation of smoky shrimp and halibut stew from Bon Appetit.  With a quick salad on the side and maybe some bread from the Whole Foods bakehouse, that's dinner in a flash.

We'll turn back to that sale asparagus for both Wednesday and Thursday, buying it by the end of the sale on Wednesday.  Since we'll be looking for a pasta dish by Wednesday, it will be penne with asparagus, spinach, and bacon from Cooking Light.  Another side salad, and we're done.

Something Asian-inspired will be needed by Thursday, so we'll finish off that sale asparagus with chicken, asparagus, and broccoli stir-fry from Bon Appetit, using the chicken breast tenders that are $1.99 a pound through Wednesday at both Sprouts and Sunflower.  Served over brown rice, with some steamed edamame on the side, it's an easy dinner.

Which gets us through to Friday's planning.
