Dinner for two?  I know I'm several weeks away from this becoming a trend, but here's some ideas on easy, fast, healthy ideas for couples:

Have the fishmonger portion out your favorites into separate packages.  Fish defrosts quickly, can be grilled, baked or even sautéed literally within a few minutes.  Not the defrosting part, but that can be sped up with some cold water!

Instead of buying roasts-go for the steak versions of everything.  I was perusing the lamb area and found packages of leg of lamb slices.  Again, portion them out and grill them.  Yum!

Do the same with other cuts.  If you're like me and like to make extra for the specific use of making someone's lunch the next day-allow for this.

Buy the whole chicken, but do the cutting yourself.  

I also like to use a food scale-the kind you get if you join Weight Watchers. They're accurate and this way you know you aren't going to overeat.

This is a great time to try new foods that you always suspected your children wouldn't like!  Or even start making foods that you and your significant other did like, but the kids wouldn't eat.

I'm planning on serving a lot more onions and celery now.  Our kids have always hated those and carrots (unless I candied them) too.  Probably because I ate so much of them while I was pregnant.  Whatever, I'm serving all of them, roasted or just steamed and dressed with lemon and garlic-a lot.

Or until hubby says he's had enough.  

I have a feeling I don't have to buy any more yellow mustard-hubby and I love Dijon, never touch the other bottle, we've always had a bottle for the kids though.  Same with frosted flakes, Honey bunches of oats, some sort of blueberry flavored squares and strawberry jam.  My husband doesn't eat cereal but once in a blue moon and I keep to my morning bowl of all bran mixed with Kashi Go Lean.  

Oops, I digressed to breakfast.  Maybe we'll talk more about that next week.  

LADIES:  Sorry about posting early, but I am on grandma duty at my daughter’s tomorrow-7 a.m. call! Which means I will be up before the birds and too tired to think when I get home.  Enjoy!
