Your lunch today

Mine consists of moist wheat bread, sliced baby carrots, tuna with plenty of mayo and a slice of extra sharp cheddar cheese. I sliced the baby carrots down their middle, length wise, so they give a satisfying snap as I bite into the sandwich.

Gotta say, not too bad. Oh, and I washed it down with the remaining flat ginger ale in a cold 2 liter bottle (the only way to drink it!).

So, what did you have?

Mine is Cup O Noodles and some Chef Boyardi heatable ravioli because I totally ran out of food at home.

Well, I got up at 3:30 this morning, so I’m not sure “lunch” really fits into the day (Oh, and my hubby won’t be home until about 7PM, so a late dinner is guaranteed). So, a couple hours after I got up, I had some peanut butter on a slice of whole wheat bread. Then, around 10:30, I fixed myself a grilled cheese and some cream of tomato soup (again, whole wheat; I typically don’t keep white bread in the house). Right now, it’s almost 2:30 and I’m getting ready to take a (previously) frozen beef pot pie out of the microwave. I’ll butter the crust before I nom it. Butter. Proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. :wink:

Healthy Choice Steamer - chicken and noodles and veggies, plus a can of vegetable Soup-at-Hand to offset the lack of salt in the former.


Two hot dogs, some BBQ chips and a can of Coke. This was a real treat since I had some teeth pulled recently and these all represent foods I’m not supposed to be eating - or at least wasn’t supposed to eat. Being vaguely naughty makes an otherwise mundane meal taste good. Much better than cold, bland soft foods, anyway.

Fresh garden carrots that are super sweet.
Barley and gravy.
Roast beef and gravy.
Mashed potatoes and gravy.

Later on I had chex mix I was making.

Today is a cooking day.

I may do some cookies next. My niece has a birthday party Sunday. I’m also tempted to bake a pumpkin from the garden.

A slice of cheese pizza, a slice of barbecue chicken pizza, and a piece of garlic bread.

A couple of turkey hot dogs, on buns, with mustard.

I was at home today, so I got something something a bit better than usual. I took the idea from the EatingWell Serves Two cookbook for making quick pizzas: I took a piece of whole-wheat flatbread (sold near the pita bread) and topped it with mozzarella and provolone and thin-sliced red peppers and baby fennel. Baked for 10ish minutes at 350 till bubbly and crispy.

Philly steak and cheese sandwich with peppers and onions, sweet potato fries on the side.

A slice of pizza from the place across the street, chocolate chip cookie, and a Diet Coke (I’m watching my girlish figure).

A Ham, Salami, & Cheese hoagie with mustard, tomatoes, hot peppers and pickles.

Sour Cream & Cheddar Potato Chips.

And water to drink.

Footlong lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion, pickles, olives, jalapenos, pepperjack cheese, light mayo, black pepper (lots of), and a dash of salt on whole wheat. And a cuppa joe.

Small Thundercloud Club on wheat bread and a large tea.

Leftovers. Made pasta for dinner on Tuesday with leftover turkey from Thankskgiving, a red pepper, and onion in a rose sauce.

Now that I’ve eaten it that’s it for the turkey. Huzzah!!!

Corn Nuts and an apple.

Chicken makhani, palak paneer and beef kofta. Yes, I went to an Indian buffet - why do you ask?

I only allow myself to go out a maximum of once a week for a meal, so I really went all out.

Unfortunately, if my puffy ankles are anything to go by, I’m paying for it now. Time to go for that walk and de-swell.

A snickers and a Coke (and a smile).

You sound like my Dad! He swears that has all the food groups.

Boiled egg and two slices of wholemeal toast.
