Clean out the Fridge!
I bought my own condo in Rhode Island in April of 2006. (I don’t miss it at all and love PB’s condo in Philly, but sometimes I really miss living with my cousin. It was fun to help each other picking out outfits, and somehow it isn’t the same with PhillyBoy). When I first moved there, I often bought way too many fruits and vegetables and they would go bad before I could eat them all. Through time and trial and error, I learned to find the balance between buying too much fresh produce and buying too little. Inevitably, there comes a day near the end of the week where we are out of all the fresh goodies I love: different types of lettuce, apples or pears, citrus fruits, berries, cucumbers, carrots and more. Today was one of those days!
Even without some of my favorite foods, I was able to put together a great lunch. It feels great to know we are going on a trip and won’t need to throw away any food before going. For my early lunch I had a Flat Out wrap with 1 egg, 1 egg white, 1/4 oz mozzarella cheese (just a dash) and 1/4 avocado. On the side I had leftover spinach from last night.
Someone asked me what happens to our dinner leftovers.. Can you take a wild guess? PHILLYBOY! He often takes leftovers to work with him for lunch, or eats a small portion after work as a snack. I work from home- I have a full kitchen at my disposal. There is no need for me to eat precious leftovers that would make the easiest packed lunch for my husband! I know he would do the same if the roles were reversed. However, if we have leftovers of this, you bet I make a double batch and save some for myself!!!
It has been really fun sharing my meals with you this week, and I am curious to see how it goes tomorrow in Colorado. What are your thoughts? Do you miss my usual recipe posts and restaurant reviews? Do you prefer seeing my daily eats? I’d love some feedback.
