What I Ate Wednesday- When the husband’s away…

The wife gets to eat whatever she wants!! :)

Last week my hubby was outta town on business, so of course I missed him tons, but I also kind of secretly enjoyed having the house to myself! Let’s be honest, you can’t really get away with serving your husband popcorn and red wine for dinner, but when you’re home alone it is totally OK!

After a few too many nights like that, and a lot too many leftover these it was time for some veggies. Hence, the soup. And some salad.

I can’t get enough of pumpkin seeds on salad. I’ve been tossing them on everything lately, but especially be lovin them on top of some greens!

As a grad student, I lived in a small apartment  in San Francisco. I had no money and had to be a very smart grocery shopper. Especially when my little sister came to live with me! I could go to Costco and get a giant package of corn tortillas, a giant bag of shredded cheese, and a huge container of spinach for about $15. Those 3 things could feed us for a month! How you ask? Simple. Spinach quesadillas!

I can’t even count how many of these I’ve eaten in my life. Millions, probably. Even though I don’t have to eat them for dinner every night anymore, every now and then I get the craving, and they are just as good as they always were!

Does anyone else think it is way too early for Starbucks Red Cups?? Since I was only making coffee for one, I treated myself to Starbucks instead of making a big pot. But I absolutely do NOT agree with the start of celebrating/decorating Christmas before Thanksgiving. Maybe it’s the foodie in me, but I really love Thanksgiving and I hate that too early red cups and over eager department store decorators steal its thunder every year. You with me???

So, it was a pretty great week of eat-whatever-you-want dinners, but I’m also pretty darn glad to have my other half home!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope it’s great!

    I don’t think it’s every too early to get out the Christmas stuff! Haha. It’s my favorite holiday. Last weekend my mom and I went “window-shopping” at Walmart to check out all of their holiday decorations. We even are on the hunt to pull out all of our Christmas music. :)
