SP had some work to do today so we decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow. That meant we needed to come up with something for dinner using things we already had on hand. We got a few last of the summer tomatoes from my parents so he decided to whip up a quick sauce, which we had over thin spaghetti:

I made a quick salad using lettuce, cucumber, shallots and tomato from the veggie box:
...as well as some pimento-stuffed olives I found in the fridge. The olives added a salty bite that went really well with the simple red wine vinegar dressing I threw together.
SP was cleaning out the pantry today and he found a package of ready-mix bread we got from someone for Christmas. It was roasted garlic and olive-flavored:
... and while it tasted fine, I only had half a piece because it just wasn't worth the stomach space.
