I know that each week I post the meals that we cooked at home.
But last week, I thought that it might be nice to photograph my lunches too. I took two days of PTO last week, so I only have three days worth of work lunches. When I’m really on my game, I might have a week worth of leftover salads (leftovers in a chopped salad format with romaine) but that simply has not been my life lately. I feel like the odd variety shown here pretty much captures how it has been going.
Monday – 1/2 Mashed Avocado on Toast
Since we didn’t cook on Sunday night, this was my fallback lunch. Actually, this is always my fallback lunch. Each week, I put two avocados on our shopping list because if we don’t make them into guacamole, there is a 100% chance they will become lunch.
Tuesday – Marcus’ Leftover Red Curry from Thanh Do
We didn’t cook on Monday night either (family projects) so Marcus offered me his leftovers (this is love, people). They were incredibly tasty, but as you can see from the photo, it was not what anyone would consider a full lunch. I did pack more snacks with the intention of eating them, but I was lucky enough to have the five minutes to slurp this down cold.
Wednesday – A Gyro and some (unpictured) Fries from a Greek takeout place
Amy bought me birthday lunch and we agreed that gyros were more exciting than Subway. Amen.
Thursday – “The Kat” aka Baked Sweet Potato with Wilted Spinach, Two Soft-Fried Eggs and Hot Sauce
This is what I usually eat for breakfast, but since Brady and I were busy eating donuts for breakfast on my birthday, I made this my lunch instead.
Friday – A Chocolate Raspberry Shake, Small Fries and an Individual Serving of Coleslaw from Happy’s
We always stop at Happy’s on the way up/down from the cabin. Sometimes I get a burger. Sometimes I get their taco salad. Sometimes I have even been known to go for their chicken wild rice soup. I really love this little pieced-together meal of coleslaw, french fries and a shake. The slaw makes me feel like I’m trying to eat my vegetables. We all know fries and a shake are The Best Combination Next To Pizza And Beer.
