Icky Outside!

Thunderstorms in February!

Thunderstorms in February!

I was going to run a couple of errands at lunch, but decided to stay in!   Lunch today was delicious, but first, I restocked my “pantry” at work.  I was out of crushed red peppers, Pam spray and Italian seasoning.  I kind of just “claimed” this cabinet next to the oven!

crushed red pepper, Italian seasoning, the container on the left is garlic salt - love the Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy!

Bread crumbs (from my crab cakes the other day) and sugar free syrup - haven't used that in ages though!

  • 1 ounce diced salami (not sure if you can see it!)
  • 1.5 cups baby spinach

I added crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning - spicy!

    Love the spag squash 🙂

  13. Haven’t had spaghetti squash in a while but that stuff is so tasty. It looks pretty nasty our that window… good thing you restocked on the crushed red pepper though! I would be so sad to run out of it.

  14. Sorry to hear about all of your rain…I would have rather woken up to that then the ground being covered in snow and it still snowing HUGE flakes. Great looking meal as always!!

  15. anticipating tonight’s post! 🙂

  16. ick, i think nasty weather is everywhere today!
