That's right, I'm back! Do I get a gold shiny star sticker? I hope you guys have had a good week and are ready to start the weekend.
Now to get to the title of my post, I am really good at going grocery shopping, cooking lunches up for my husband (not because I'm a domestic, but because I have control and he eats anything) and bringing snacks to work. Unfortunately, I can never plan to make myself lunch because I can't predict what I will be in the mood for the next day. Am I the only one?
Working in an office has the advantages of a microwave, utencils, and a fridge, so I play a little game of Iron Chef almost every day.
Secret Ingredients #1: A smug homegrown tomato, basil, whole wheat bread, and an avocado.
I turned it into a mock caprese open faced sandwich.
Secret Ingredients #2: A baked sweet potato, avocado, and the remainder of my cottage cheese.
This time I heated it up and topped it with a baked potato that puts restaurant versions to shame in my little mind.
The sriracha I found in my work fridge gave this a little kick and lit my mouth on fire. Perfection.
Sometimes planning everything out is more cost effective and less stressful, but never as fun. I have had some flops before and my coworkers think I eat pretty nasty things, but I just shrug my shoulders and tell them I'm strange.
Another great thing about being spontaneous? If you don't pack your dinner for school, you get to have frozen yogurt for dinner.
Do it. It will make life just a little bit better.
Question for you: Do you pack your entire lunch all prepped for work? Do you ever just wing it like me?
