Today’s menu: cheese ravioli, spinach, bread, applesauce
The cheese ravioli looked and tasted exactly like a Michelina’s microwave meal. I say that as a compliment. I spent years eating microwave meals for lunch (and for about half the week my husband still does).
Compared to yesterday’s meal, this meal is positively refreshing. Pasta has always been a comfort food for me. I consider it to be deeply satisfying. I think that the people making the food went back to the drawing board with the pasta – compared to cheese lasagna cheese ravioli is significantly better.
I paid $3.00 for today’s lunch, just about what I would pay for a Michelina’s. In fact, I missed my bi-weekly trip to the bank and had to bum $2 off of my husband before leaving for work. Before the project I never paid attention to how much cash I carried around. Now I make sure I have singles because I don’t want to burden the lunch ladies with making change. They have enough to do and certainly no time to make change for a lazy teacher!
Yesterday I had a headache after lunch. Today I didn’t. I’m wondering if the hot dog did it? Both days I ate wheat and today I also had lots of cheese. Today’s lunch was meatless. Both days I drank about the same amount of water. Curious, but it could be unrelated.
I’m going to cut it short tonight to focus on cleaning my desk, my house, and my car. I have let everything slide. I even missed a credit card payment, which I have never done before. I have been blogging away all of my free time.
Maybe I’ll have a chance at going to bed before 11:30! Here’s hoping… I’m working on exciting stuff and I hope to share it with you by the end of the week…
(Surprised that nobody commented on the glaring typo in the title of yesterday’s blog post. I am in need of rest!)
