Molto Leftovers

Happy Hump-Day! This has been a tough week so far, so I’m very happy we’re in the home stretch. And although I love cooking, not having to do much this week has been a nice break :).

Monday included a lot of leftovers from cooking Easter dinner. This was my food for the day, meant to get me through from 8:30am-5:30pm. Breakfast was the bag of Kashi & fruit, I had the pita chips mid-morning for a snack, the 3-compartment tupperware and fruit tart was my lunch, and the carrots and half the hummus were munched on in the afternoon. Now that I think about it, the salad and sugar snap peas are still in the office fridge…….need to clean that out!


Hubs isn’t much of a leftover kinda guy, so we went to an Italian restaurant around the block (we can walk there – love that!). He had angel hair pasta with grilled chicken, sausage, and arugula and I had penne arrabiatta (penne, hot peppers, mushrooms, spicy tomato sauce). Mine was SO good. So good in fact, that the leftovers (huge portions!) were part of my Tuesday food for the day. Yesterday I did eat everything I had brought with me, plus about an ounce of mixed nuts.


And apparently we can’t get enough pasta, and went out again last night (this time roping my parents who live nearby to treat us!) and I got the same thing. This time the leftovers were enough for both of us to have for dinner. I doctored mine up by serving it on a bed of spinach, and mixed some Trader Joe’s Chipotle Chicken Sausage into Hubs’. Verdict – mmmmm.


Hopefully I can get into a better pattern of photographing meals and posting them, but they’ll be a little sporadic, although definitely a few times a week. 🙂
