I have a longer day of work today, so I'll be eating breakfast, lunch, and my mid-afternoon snack at work. Here's what I'm packing:
homemade granola (soymilk to be added at work)
2 slices of cheese pizza with the kids(our cook is off today, so our assistant director ordered pizza so the kids can have a Friday pizza party!)
salad (see above)
4 Lorna Doone cookies
glass of soymilk
I never ate my tabouli and olives, pictured above. Bummer! However, I did eat a sugar-free popsicle with the kids . . . a fun birthday treat from one of our little ones who just turned 4! However, by the time I finished my popsicle, I had no time left to eat my tabouli -- the kids were ready to go OUTSIDE! So, the tabouli ended up getting ignored. Sorry, tabouli.
Out for Dan's mom's birthday:
They brought us an "amuse bouche," which was a cracker with a bleu cheese, apple, and pecan relish, and also a bread basket -- I ate plenty of (pretty good!) baguette with roasted garlic spread to start. The amuse bouche was also very tasty!
I ordered their pasta special, which was penne with mushrooms, eggplant, summer squash, herbs, and heirloom tomatoes. It was okay -- good, but there was so much oil, it kind of hid the taste of all of those delicate summer veggies! Alas. However, the ambiance and great company made up for the mediocre pasta.
Happy Birthday, Sandy!!
