Bachelorette Pad

Good Morning, friends 🙂

Last night Shane worked late, and then went to a happy hour that I chose to skip out on. Thankful that I did, Shane came home and told me it was all car talk the whole time, heh.

Anyway, he was just going to eat dinner at happy hour, so I had free range of the kitchen to fend for myself. What’s a girl to do when she’s cooking for one? Shane’s been on first shift now for well over a year. I pondered back to the previous years of where I’d had a little of this and a little of that for dinner (maybe cottage cheese, some toast, a couple crackers) or maybe some cereal and milk. That was then.

Last night I had decided on eggplant parmesan before I realized I didn’t have anything to make the red sauce with. Then, a light bulb came on, and I thought of a way to use these ingredients that have been sitting unused in my fridge for a while:

Scramble, scramble, add in some spinach, cheese, and tomatoes, wrap it all up, and you have:


Dinna! Alongside some fresh green beans:

and this bad boy:

I love this Naturally Nutty Almond Butter. It’s sooo good, and almost dessert like, but I checked that back and there’s only 5 grams of sugar, and no added sugar substance. Awesome!


It got spread on an Arnold’s Sandwich thin.

I made sure to bust out the fine china for this meal 😉

Add some America’s Next Top Model and an Allure magazine, and you have a bachelorette pad!

I was glad to see my hubby when he came home later though 😉

The night was productive overall! I got some emails out I’ve been meaning to, filled out my form to get my name changed on my passport, did some bloggy stuff, etc…

Unfortunately, though, my ankle is hurting me this morning. I didn’t take any of my tendonitis pills yesterday because a. it was feeling better, and b. I’d rather not take chemicals. Alas, they showed me. I’ll be taking one today, as directed!

What do you cook for dinner when only cooking for one?
