Today’s menu: pasta with meat sauce, salad, orange, bread (
Here, here for pasta! It was the first meal I ate way back at the start of this here wacky experiment and here I am still eating
some of it. I’m liking this strikeout feature all of a sudden….
I remain a committed fan of hot food and the pasta did not disappoint. Some days you just need a hot meal at lunch time. I could never do a PB&J every day because on days with terrible weather, it’s just too darn comforting to have soup or another hot meal to make your insides feel toasty warm. Orange and a salad? Thanks for the fresh food! Not to mention a logical pairing — pasta and salad go together well. The salad looks paltry in the photo — they have offered salad before, in styrofoam containers. I think they are going for a slightly more eco-friendly approach here. It’s not aesthetically pleasing though is it?
My commute was a breeze today so I’m assuming most of you are off for the holidays. I will keep lunch posts this week brief so that we all can enjoy the best part of the holidays: family and friends.
This month’s Titanium Spork Award will be combined with last month’s for an October/November (O/N) Double Titanium Spork Award. Time got away from me. Since so few people seem to be online this week, I’m going to go ahead and take your previous nominations and put them into a poll, which is now live! Please vote! The winner will get two sporks, one for each month!
Today Chef Ann Cooper was in Florida with First Lady Michelle Obama to announce work towards getting salad bars in 6,000 schools. Great news and a big congrats to Ann Cooper for starting the salad bar movement. She hit one out of the park today! (hint, hint –she’s up for a Titanium Spork Award!)
