Welcome back to Foodie Friday! I’m loving this new little feature of mine – mostly because it made me giggle to read all of your comments on my post last Friday – who knew how interested you’d all be in what I like to eat! 😉
I am dedicating today’s Foodie Friday to lunchtime. Now that I have the luxury of working from home most days — something I am eternally grateful for, you have no idea — I can get much more creative at lunchtime which I LOVE!
Just a few snippets from this week – I’m calling this the Lunch Box Edition (aside: I used to LOVE my lunch box as a kid, complete with the thermos for soup!):
I’m calling this one the best lunch everrrrr. It involved a bagel thin that I toasted and smeared with a laughing cow (herb flavored) cheese wedge. I topped that with fresh arrugula, sliced tomato, one fried egg and a half of an avocado. With a side of the juiciest pineapple and strawberries. Um, YUM. This stuck with me for almost FIVE hours too – which, if you know me, is unheard of!
Sandwich time — on my newest and latest obsession: Flatout wraps. They are AWESOME. So soft and flavorful and quite the bang for the caloric buck at 90 calories a wrap. This one included turkey, cheese, baby spinach and mustard. With a delicious arrugula salad with goat cheese. Goat cheese – another food item I could never live without. ❤
Apparently I’m in a sandwich mood this week because yesterday’s lunch involved two things: An impromptu lunch date with my sis who came by for lunch amidst her erranding — I made her a delicious salad (she was craving greens after being away all week) filled with arrugula, baby spinach, strawberries, goat cheese and snap peas. I went with another turkey/cheese wrap but this time I went back for more of those strawberries and pineapple, and at the last second, tossed on some snap peas that were leftover from dinner the night prior. Another yummy and filling lunch — and even better to share it with my sis, I missed her!
So there you have it – some of my latest lunch “box” favorites of late. I tend to eat more sandwiches/wraps and “comforting” lunches (including leftovers, when available) in the winter and switch back to lots of giant salads filled with the freshest fruits and veggies I can find in the spring and summer. Wait till you see pictures of lunchtime in the summer – a bounty of freshness!
So now I wanna know: what was your favorite lunch box treat this week? That egg sandwich concoction was definitely my favorite of the week. I’m still dreaming of it. I love food. I just can’t help myself. 😉
(PS. I’m still figuring out Pinterest – if one of you could tell me how this “pin it” widget works/looks to you, I’d appreciate it! Lots of trial-and-error over here! Thank youuu!)
