While the Mr needs a lot of substance and comfort (and meat) in his meals at the end of the day, I’m always happy to create something simple with whatever I can find in the kitchen. Since he’s gone for training, I’ve gotten a kick out of seeing what I can dish up out of a seemingly empty fridge. It’s strangely gratifying, and the wallet and the waistline are definitely better off.
But needless to say, I’m ready to fill up the fridge with comfort food and share the dinner table again.
Do you eat differently when your man is away?
(Eggs with goat cheese and arugula salad / Kashi veggie pizza / roasted sweet potatoes and eggs over medium)

If you started a ‘cooking for one’ class, I wouldn’t hesitate to sign up. This looks so good.
Haha, thanks Rachel! xo
I’ve been playing a similar game with our fridge as well. Most recently I came up with a vegan cole slaw salad with an Asian flair. It’s renewed my love of cabbage.
Love that you’re playing with what’s fresh in your kitchen. I agree – so much healthier and gratifying that succumbing to the take-out menus :)
Stopping by here from Bound. Happy to have found your site!
Thanks for stopping by Eileen!
I definitely do! I indulge in the comfort food of my days as a single girl which mainly consist of cheese and cheesy pasta. Had one for lunch and going to have the other for dinner. Haha. I miss him terribly. 2 more weeks to go:).
Oh yay! Can’t wait for you guys. :)
Um, yes, I definitely do this…only my version swings between the healthy things you’re portraying and meals consisting of wine and chocolate. So…there’s that.
Yes but what I did not show in these photos is the after… wine and ice cream sandwiches, haha :)
YUM! My favorite would be the roasted potatoes and eggs!
Great pictures! Everything looks very tasty.
