Laptop Lunch #3

Yes. I’ve been buried under a lot of homework and it kept me from putting up my foodstuffs. But I have been eating. 😉 And taking pictures!

Laptop #3

Clockwise starting top left: Fat-free cottage cheese with a strawberry. I had some frozen strawberries from a sale and put it in there. The lid would go on so I fished it out and cut it in half. Since I pack my lunches the night before, the strawberry had time to thaw in the fridge and left its goodness all over the place. Black olives. I wish I had a food pick but fork worked fine. Papaya was very hard to cut. I should have looked up how to cut one but thought it’d be like an avocado. Not sure if it didn’t work out because it was overripe? No idea. I do know now that I don’t like papaya much. But I tried it. The pink container has a pile of frozen mixed vegetables. Again, it had time to thaw out till lunch. Wasn’t bad microwaved for a minute. Already had a spritz or three of ICBINB spray. Pretty tasty. I don’t use a lot of salt and these didn’t have any.

Honeyed Chicken, Roasted Butternut, and Strawberry Salad

In my effort to try and live mo’ bettah, I cooked last night and tonight. It’s hard though. I get off work around 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. Commute is not long but still puts me in the kitchen around 6:00 – 6:15 p.m. usually. Then there’s prep and cooking, so I’m not eating till around 7:00 p.m. or so. I want to exercise when I get home but if I did that, then I wouldn’t eat till closer to 8:00 p.m. Insane. Oh and another thing about eating last is the craptastic light I have to work with if I do photograph. I apologize for the blur. 20080423 Dinner

Dinner: April 23, 2008

  • Honeyed Chicken
    Used up the rest of the drumsticks that were dirt cheap that I bought yesterday. Didn’t use my locally bought honey because I didn’t have enough but will next time. I did use my own grown chives from out back instead of green onions. Measurements were eyeballed but used basically the rest of the recipe sort of. You know how it is.
  • Roasted Butternut Squash
  • Strawberry Salad
    This was a mixture of torn romaine lettuce, baby spinach and sliced strawberries. They’re in season, y’know. I drizzled on top of it some bottled Light Balsamic Dressing (Newman’s Own). This was my first time making or eating a strawberry salad and I liked it. Next time maybe I’ll add nuts.
