Cook Smart: 2 Nights' Worth of Suppers

One delicious meal spurs on a second speedy dinner.

Pick a day when there's some breathing room to cook, and end up with two nights' worth of suppers. To start, we put together a Sunday menu and cooked two pork loin roasts. We served one, and then saved the other for a second night's 30-minute, one-dish meal.

Recipes

 

Special Sunday Dinner
On Sunday, serve Zesty Pork Loin With Apricot-Pan Sauce, Potato-and-Carrot Amandine, and a salad made with a Caesar salad bag kit and sliced tomatoes. Plan strawberry ice cream with hot fudge sauce for dessert.

 

Speedy Tuesday Supper
Use the second cooked pork roast and reserved marinade within 2 days to make Pork-and-Soba Noodle Bowl. You've got your protein, carbs, and veggies covered, so simply serve with orange slices and fortune cookies.
