Michael has been busy studying. And I’ve been busy traveling. Which means that while I’m off eating like a queen, Michael’s stuck at home….eating take-out. Poor Michael. After a long Memorial Day weekend with CFA books up to his ears and without a home-cooked meal, I decided to put together some grub for him for the upcoming weekend since I’ll be gone again (girl’s trip!!!).
The kitchen is stocked with the following:
Cowboy Lasagna – The Pioneer Woman
1 T hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and sliced into matchsticks
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1/3 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1. Cook pasta. Run under cold water to stop cooking. Toss with sesame oil.
2. Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, hot sauce, and 6 T pasta cooking water in medium bowl until smooth.
3. Toss pasta with sauce, cucumber, bell pepper and cilantro.
We added a 1/2 pound P&D sauteed shrimp for a little protein.
Salad is best served at room temperature, but also would be good straight from fridge or heated in microwave.
Aren’t I the best wife ever? It’s the least I could do to help Michael prepare for his big test. Good luck, Michael! At least you won’t go hungry.
