Lunch-- for now anyway.

Daytime eating is weird for me. I never know what sounds good that I can throw together in my house in the 3 minutes I'm willing to devote to lunch. If there's time to spare... there are a million things to get done right? Or a million ways to be lazy. Whatever you fancy.

But I definitely don't want to spend my free time preparing something for myself. After preparing food for kids all day long. Sometimes I love turkey sandwiches and sometimes I don't. What else is there?? When I don't--- then I'm really in a bind and end up eating chocolate peanut butter malt balls all day. (Those deserve a post of their own.)

But when I'm in a turkey phase... I could eat this every day. ("This" meaning many of these of course.) A slice of a multigrain baguette, (or white if I'm feeling more carefree... yes--- I'm one of those... watch my white flour in meals, then chase it with something made of cocoa butter and refined sugar for the rest of the hours of the day... leave me alone...), top with Boar's Head Golden Roasted chicken breast from Henry's (I said turkey... but the only one I really love right now is this chicken, I can barely go back to turkey now.) Slather with avocado. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

Repeat. But don't keep a count.

Chase with Chocolate Peanut Butter Malt Balls sold in bulk from Henrys. And hope you don't get diseases from the bin. (Have you heard those stats/rumors? Yikes.)

Oh how I LOVE Henry's Boar's Head Golden Turkey!! That is my most favorite deli meat! :-) Looks like a yummy lunch to me!

I hear you 100% on the preparing lunch for myself thing. It's such a hassle to try to figure out what to eat for lunch. I usually eat crap.

you are funny lillie...

henry's is one of my favorite stores. their produce is so good (the avocado is from there right? so green!) and cheap.

and those bins...it's like a kid in a candy store for me. which I guess it actually is since I always reach for the candy.

Did you put your food on the carpet on a pizza peel? Gross.

I totally agree with making lunch. I'm hungry but not enough to sit and make lunch for myself and then around 2:00 I'm starved and go for ice cream. Frustrating. I will have to try your yummy, yummy salad. Keep sharing good food ideas. I need them as I"m feeling stale. I think we all better be invited over for lunch as we obviously all hate to make it.

I think it's hilarious that you get more comments on what your having for lunch then when I anounce that my husband separated from me. WOW, I'm a loser.

funny bc i've been on a turkey, avocado kick lately too, which is unusual for me bc i'm not usually an avocado lover. your pic looks way better than my sandwiches though.
