Menu Monday

 I unofficially declared last week the week of Cooking Light September 2011.  I didn't notice that all but one of the recipes I pulled out of my binder were from the exact same magazine.  Whoops. 

Fish en Papillote {Laura Calder French Food at Home}

Stir-fried Chinese Egg Noodles {Cooking Light September 2011}
Another one of those meals that meets our favorite criteria: super easy to make and super easy to clean up.  My grocery store is not cosmopolitan enough to sell Chinese egg noodles, so I used refrigerated fresh linguine.  I also used 2 teaspoons of Sriracha sauce instead of chile paste.

Buffalo Chicken Thighs {Cooking Light September 2011}
 Let's just put it this way:  I'll be making this for M the next time I want him to "surprise" me with a gift that comes in a little orange box.  M LOVES buffalo wings; they're probably his favorite food.  I made smashed potatoes by mixing smashed, boiled redskin potatoes with 2 teaspoons of ranch dressing mix and a container of Greek yogurt.  I thought he was going to start licking his plate.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo {Cooking Light September 2011}
My only complaint about this meal is that it's one of those dishes that requires perfect timing, and that's not really how I cook.   I should've started heating the pasta water much sooner than I did, but that was my fault.  Oh well.  It still turned out very tasty.  M said it was even good cold the next day for lunch.

Bon appetit!

Your cooking is really inspiring! I think my husband would be licking the plate with the buffalo chicken thigh dish, too.
