I am going to Colorado at the end of the week so I didn’t want to buy a bunch of food yesterday and have it go to waste. I found a spinach artichoke pasta on pinterest and I thought it looked pretty good so I changed it up a bit and tried it out tonight for dinner and I am just going to use the rest for my lunches during the week.
