Charming

My prince has come!

Isn’t he charming?

Derek is hard at work trying to figure out how we’re getting to the airport tomorrow morning. Since our flight leaves at 6:30 am – and we need to be there an hour ahead of time – we’ve been a little less than successful at tracking down a friendly lift. Luckily we found a cheap parking lot nearby that includes a free shuttle ride to the airport. The parking lot + shuttle should be cheaper than taking a cab from a nearby friend’s house – at least that’s what we’re counting on after a little research. 🙂

While he figured everything out, I made dinner.

This meal includes pretty much everything left in my fridge. (minus the figs – those were for dessert)

Simplicity has been the theme this week. My meat-less sloppy joe fits in there perfectly.

The meat-less sloppy joe included some meat-less crumbles that I dug out of the freezer. The crumbles were added to some onions and pepper then heated up with a generous portion of ketchup and honey mustard.

I served mine on a slice of spelt toast.

Derek on the other hand was scared to try the spelt bread because I called it spelt bread. I think if I would have called it whole wheat he would not have been the wiser. 😉

Derek also had a problem the roasted broccoli rabe.

He kept asking me if I was sure it was ok to have the leaves on there.

Yes, Derek the leaves are ok to be left on there. 🙂

It didn’t matter to him though, he ate around the leaves anyways.

Le Sigh.

Not sure how long I had a corn on the cob in the back of my fridge, but after roasting in the oven for a few minutes I tasted great.

I told you the figs would make an appearance for dessert. You’ll see them at breakfast too. 😉

Oh wait, you can’t see them.

There they are!

Must. Go. To. Sleep.

We have a 4:00am wake up call tomorrow. Oy vey!

See you in the big apple!

Don’t tell me your tired of packed lunches already! At least today is a good one.   You didn’t think I would get through a whole week of packing lunches without throwing a salad in there, did you?   Today’s salad came from the massaged kale variety with balsamic vinegar, tomato, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, raisins, more »
