And it’s what we had for dinner last night.
Alex just started his turn on second shift, which means the dreaded nights are over.
*loud, joyous sounds of celebration cue NOW*
He gets home between 10:30 and 11:00 and then I have him all night long – oh, my life has gotten so much better! I love having him home! – it’s delightful to wake up next to him and then have breakfast with him, and it’s lunch time before he has to rush off and save the world. I *love* it.
It’s a busy shift, so he isn’t always able to come home and eat for dinner during work which means we find ourselves eating fashionably late nowadays – I like it.
Let’s face it, I’m just happy about the whole arrangement.
Last night we had pasta salad, my first attempt at transitioning from ‘cold weather foods’ to ‘hot weather foods’ and it was pretty stinkin’ easy.
1/2 pound of penne pasta, boiled and then chilled
cherry tomatoes, sliced
black olives, sliced
a very small onion, diced
some orange pepper, chopped
a crumbling of feta cheese
fresh spinach torn into bite-sized pieces
some of my homemade Greek dressing
Toss. Eat. The End.
