Recipe for abstinence
#21
Mmmm... this thread is making me hungry.  Here's a few of mine to add.  I don't cook with recipes usually, so here are descriptions of some favorite Friday meals.

Are you trying to do a low-carb/low-fat diet?  One of the things I like to do on Fridays is make Chinese-ish food.  I cook rice and meanwhile, heat frozen shrimp in a skillet until pink.  Shrimp goes on sale every couple of months or so, and the little ones are fairly inexpensive.  Then add vegetables (snow peas and scallions are standard, broccoli's good too) with some minced ginger, soy sauce, and a bit of flour in the skillet for about three minutes.

Another good but simple light meal:  For each person, cut a tomato into wedges, but don't cut all the way through the bottom so you have like a flower.  Stuff the tomatoes with tuna salad, then top each one with a slice of mozzarella and pop it in the oven until the cheese gets all melty and good.  Serve with crackers and raw veggies.

Baked potatoes with lots of toppings and salad.  (Yes, cheese-covered carbs!)

Pasta, pasta, pasta.  This is a favorite from my mother-in-law.  It is best in summer, but good now too.  Chop up a bunch of tomatoes, the riper the better, and garlic.  Let sit at room temperature for a couple of hours.  Cook angel hair pasta, top with tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese.  Really good with crusty bread to mop up the tomato juice.

Pizza.  This sounds weird, but canned Northern White Beans are SO GOOD on pizza!  My then-vegetarian friend ordered it when we were in Rome and we all loved it.  So you can get protein in that way.

So those are my Friday standards.  Hope that helps you out!
