You'll be going back for seconds of the chicken piccata.
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, a Roast Chicken was served over tomato salad and remade into an Antipasti Chop Salad and Chicken & Chorizo Empanadas. This week, smoked salmon is used in both a Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche and fully dressed Bagels & Lox.

Here's the rest of the plan:

  • Smoked Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche
