Cooking Light Week

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 11:18 am

So this week I’m going to make all my dinners from recipes in Cooking Light magazine. I flipped through a few of these magazines when we visited Evan’s parents in Tyler, and the recipes looked good and apparently they’re healthy-so what the hey!

This week is SXSW in Austin, and the lovely Brad Wilcox is coming to hang out and enjoy some of the festivities, which may mean we skip some of these meals until next week.

MONDAY: Baked Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cheese

TUESDAY: Ceviche Style Shrimp and Avocado Tacos

WEDNESDAY: Dinner with Papa Prothro

THURSDAY: Chicken Peanut Chow Mein

FRIDAY: Evan leaves for Henderson, meaning I will likely eat a can of black beans for dinner and every other meal of the weekend. That, chick-fil-a, string cheese and peanut butter-the staples of my solo life.

Wow, so after actually looking at this week-not much on the cooking. Maybe I’ll do a Cooking Light double week experiment to make it fair.

I am so lame.




  1. oooh the baked pasta sounds yummy…
    our friend Kelly is looking for good restaurants to try in Austin, I gave her our must stop at’s (Torchy’s, South Congress) for when we visit but you might have some other ideas?
