WIS, WWA | the skiing version

What I Spent

ski slopes.

Well, I haven’t really done any grocery shopping, since I’ve been gone.

slot machines.

I did not play these airport slot machines. 😉

I think I spent about $20 on airport food on my trip out, and $20 on the way back. 

spotted bananas in a basket.

I did not buy these bananas at the airport. I don’t do spotted bananas!

And I didn’t buy any food on the slopes; I just put granola bars, beef jerky, and nuts in my jacket pockets. 

What We Ate


My mom made chicken quesadillas.

You may remember that last year when I lived with my parents, we had a green salad with every meal.

Well, the same holds true when we go skiing; green salads every meal! 

five green salads.


My mom made a sweet potato/black bean/ground beef chili, which we topped with chips, avocados, and sour cream. 

Also: a salad. Most of our salads look like this:

green salad in a white bowl.

But my younger brother is an enormous pepper fan, so everything he eats looks more like this:

salad with lots of ground pepper.

I like pepper, to be sure. Just not as much as he does!


A repeat of Sunday night.


We had cheeseburger soup, plus a green salad, plus fruit.

cheeseburger soup.


This was my last night on the trip, and we went out for dinner.

Zoe’s birthday is on Saturday, so that’s why I headed home earlier than everyone else; I didn’t want to not be there for her birthday! 


I was traveling home, so I picked up some food at the airport.

pei wei chicken and rice.

Outrageously expensive, as usual, but what can you do??


It’s my first day back, and I’m adjusting to a three-hour time difference. Odds are extremely high that we will get takeout tonight. 😉

What did you have for dinner this week?
