Home Run Inn pizza. Sausage flavor. It's frozen pizza, but sadly, it's the best pizza around. I wish we had a good take out place, but man, it appears that no Italians ever settled in the Triangle that know how to make a good pie. So frozen it is. Good stuff, though.
Turkey and Cheddar Lunchable (yes, I am 5 years old), string cheese, packet of mini muffins and a Coke.
Anything else requires wayyyyy too much thought in the mornings than I am capable of. Plus it would involve me actually interacting with my mother, which has been something that is not pleasant for any parties involved.
Gigantic salad with various lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, artichoke hearts, and grilled chicken with a balsamic vinaigrette I whipped up myself. Got it from the salad bar place across the street from the office, so it was crazy expensive (they charge by weight for the salad bar) but healthy and delicious.
And a "double-fiber" whole grain english muffin with some Smart Balance Buttery Spread on it.
The sad thing is I'm stuffed to the gills with this healthy food, and *still* have to fight a craving for some chocolate or something.
I just ate lunch. Chickpeas with chopped up tomatoes, red peppers, carrots, red onion, feta, cilantro, lemon juice and a splash of olive oil, made last night and marinated in the fridge. NOM NOM NOM. Also a big handful of grapes and a kashi oatmeal cookie.
We've entered tomato sandwich season at Chez MoonPie. Home-grown tomatoes, mayonaisse, salt and pepper, on the really good bread we can buy at Firehook or Marvelous Market or Eastern Market. Good stuff.
I made fattoush last night and I just ate it (I kept the toasted pita bits separate). I used extra sumac because I like it really sour.
It was good but I am having a terrible day and I want chocolate cake with a chocolate chip cookie on top and I don't know where to get that.
Frozen kashi pesto pasta thing that I found in the back of the freezer during my hectic early morning. Not too terrible. Not too damn good, either. But hey, I've only had 290 calories so far today - hurrah for unhealthy starvation dieting! Shut UP. It's better than the cocaine and lettuce diet although, IIRC from my early 20s, that diet really, really works. Kidding. Sort of.
rmless, thank you for that link - it led me to a great recipe for mint chutney. Have been wanting to know how to make this stuff for awhile, especially since my fave Indian place mysteriously stopped serving it (boo! hiss!) in favour of sweeter chutnies. Daggoned locals and their mainstream market taste preferences. Me no likey sweet crap on main courses kthx.
I am delighted to have the makings for that very sandwich (except arugula), lonefronter, since your description was very appetite-inducing. To increase veggie content I have Four-Bean Salad.
Speaking of which, any Bean Salad aficionados out there? Anybody make your own? Can a bottle of a decent vinaigrette work on Da Beans? And how many and which bean varieties work for you? Sometimes I even consider throwing in Limas. Sufferin' Succotash!!
