What's for Dinner? 1/28/2010

Hubs is out of town tonight so I was on my own for dinner. He went to a bourbon tasting with my dad and is staying the night in a hotel there {since it probably wouldn't be a good idea to drive 2 hours home after a BOURBON tasting}. I would have gone with him but some of us have to WORK tomorrow. Hmmph!

Anyway, back to the point of this post! So since I was on my own for dinner and I stuffed myself with Mexican at lunch, I decided to go for a light dinner. I had no idea what I was going to make but I ended up throwing together a delicious salad and a twice baked potato {from half of a leftover potato}. It ended up being such a perfect dinner and it REALLY hit the spot.

-Peach & Spring Mix Salad: Consisted of spring mix salad, white peach, pecans, blue cheese crumbles & balsamic vinaigrette. SO GOOD!
-Twice Baked Potato: All I did for this was take a baked potato and scoop out of all the "meat" and mix it with sour cream, cheese & green onions. Mix it all together well and then place back in the potato "shell". Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

{It's weird being home alone again for the first time since hubs got back from deployment. Brings back a lot of memories. And although it's nice to be able to eat whatever I want and catch up on all the TV shows that he hates, it also reminds me how GRATEFUL I am that he is home. Life is just so much more complete when he is around. /End of mushiness.}


  1. Ugh I am so jealous of your impromptu dinner skills. I am totally stealing like half of these recipes you post about.

    To the last part of your post- I know what you mean! Having Colby gone the past few nights has been weird, but I do like having the TV to myself :)

  2. Thank you both! And Kelsey, steal away!!

  3. That salad sounds awesome!!! AND...I totally remember Andrew and I being away for the first time after he deployed and I thought hummmmm..what shall I do???? I know, watch all the the salacious shows that I love and he doesn't....AND it was fun...for 1 night only!
