Oh, how I love to make packed lunches!
I woke up this morning, dreading the day until I realised that I had the makings of an absolutely amazing sandwich.
I started with medium sliced wholemeal bread
I then spread low fat cream cheese on both sides
Next, homemade coleslaw with light mayonnaise
(yes I'm watching the diet, but I'm good at pretending that I'm not)
Then I sliced up a perfectly ripe avocado
Have you noticed that they mark them down in price just when they are perfect?
On top of that was carefully sliced cucumber, not too thin, not too thick
Followed by sliced red bell pepper.
I then topped it off with dry roasted seeds
pumpkin, sunflower and hemp
I love them, and they almost replace bacon in sandwiches and salads
And they are good for the ole' sex drive
(so they say)
Just look at that BEAST!
Homemade green potato soup. Green because it has peas, broccoli and spinach in it. Two small citrus fruits and an apple. The apple I didn't eat, given to a pupil. strangely, as I'm so possessive by nature, a lot of my food gets given to individuals because they haven't got anything. No, I'm not going for saint status, an apple isn't going to save anybody. And those individuals don't make a habit of it either.
Oh, and next to the jar of soup is a jar of coffee granules. I love instant coffee.
peanut butter and plum jam on wholemeal
A homemade wholemeal carrot muffin with chocolate chips
And celery and red pepper sticks and slices of cucumber
and some milk.
Very nice all of it. And it got me going this morning. Lunch time was great, ate my sandwich and soup and had a great chat with D. and B. No kids bothered us.
Peaceful in a stormy sea.
