It's Kind of Like Vacation

Well, I have the place to myself!  Patrick and my other two roommates all left this morning for the Symphonic Band tour.  They won't be back until late Thursday night so I have the apartment to myself.  I'm hoping that I get lots of work done in this peace and quite.  It's not that I don't like my roommates, it just that a break is nice sometimes.  I'm sure mothers feel the same way.  Although I am glad that it's only a few days because I'm sure I would start to get a little lonely if it were much longer. 

The hardest part is fixing meals.  I'm used to cooking for three people, not just one.  Tonight I fixed myself a really yummy salad with spinach, walnuts, cranberries, and feta cheese.  I was curious if others had suggestions for things that you prepare when you have to cook for just one.  I think I may just make a regular meal tomorrow night and take the leftovers for lunch the next day. 

Well, I have to go get ready for my evening class.  And then I'll be tuning in to watch the Biggest Loser without having to compete with anyone for the television.  Ah, yes, just like vacation!

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start!

  1. I was going to say leftovers until you did. My fiance and I rarely eat the same meals so I constantly cook for one and I mainly do enough food for 2 nights since I'd rather cook less often if possible.

    I can understand needing a break. I loved my college roommates but I needed a major break when breaks would come :)
