Leftovers never tasted so good.
I love cooking for my fiancé and planning meals for us, but cooking for two often proves to be difficult. If I don't make a plan, I end up running around in circles at the grocery store and wasting half the ingredients I've bought (and I hate wasting food). Enter What's Cooking This Week - my meal plan and grocery guide. This way, I can make the most of my ingredients and my leftovers.

Last week, smoked salmon was used in both a Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche and fully dressed Bagels & Lox. This week, Thanksgiving leftovers get turned into the ultimate Next-Day Sandwich.

Here's the rest of the plan:

  • Shrimp & Vegetable Stir-Fry
  • Grilled Chicken & Squash w/ Garlic & Oil
