Wow…you guys sure like the EasyLunchBoxes! Honestly, I wish I could give them to all of you…your comments were SO amazing. I love that there are so many of us out there who pack lunches to tote to work/school/wherever every day! We are a special breed. And it makes me super happy to know that I’m not alone in my food packing addiction.
Here are my compartments full of yummies for work. This salad was no ordinary salad…
- dried cranz
- raw crackers (Livin’ Spoonful coconut curry flavor)
On the side, United Colors of
Benetton bell peppers and more raw crackers. I may as well get this out in the open now…I’m OBSESSED with these raw crackers. They are just sooo dang good. Everyone must try them asap.
And in the same vein as the salad, this soup was no ordinary soup…
First I steamed a couple branches of kale and a handful of carrots in veg broth. Then, I added half a can of Amy’s Spanish Rice & Red Bean soup.
Holy hearty heaven.
I probably say this about every Amy’s soup, but this is my new favorite. It was extremely tasty. The ratio of rice to veggies to red beans (which I don’t think I had ever tried before) was perfect. Red beans are legit, yo!
Now that’s what I call lunch gorgeousness.
Work was smooth(ish) sailing. The day wasn’t ideal, but I worked with one of my fave coworkers, and even the crappy days are tolerable when you have a good companion through it all. True? True.
I bought a whole wheat roll on my way home from work to round out my dinnah. Pronounced like Kailey’s theatahhh class.
I opened that hummus and polished it off in one fell swoop. SHUT. It. DOWN.
I also had the second half of the Amy’s Spanish Rice & Red Bean soup over steamed kale and carrots.
For dessert I had a HUGE green monster with vanilla silk soymilk, kale, spinach, froxen bananas, and frozen strawberries. While blending this baby, the unthinkable happened…
My magic bullet broke!!!! The frequency of my kale/frozen fruit combo must have finally just did the poor baby blender in all-together. I lifted it up and it wouldn’t stop spinning! :( It was really scary. There I was, holding my bullet in one hand while the base was buzzzzzzzing and whirling away in place. Eeek.
No bueno. Should I email the Magic Bullet people? I have a warranty that I’m pretty sure is still current.
I also had an apple. And tea. Shock.
And now, for the randomly chosen winner of the EasyLunchBoxes…
Congrats Samantha! I’m so happy for you! Your comment was amazing, too. :) Nothing like the threat of heart palpitations to hit a nerve with a cardiac nurse…well played, my friend, well played…
