Lunches at home
I had a late lunch today; didn't feel hungry until about 1:30. I decided to use the rest of an open box of ziti, grabbing a tub of homemade marinara out of the freezer and the meatloaf, which I cut into "square meatballs" as I like to call them.
Here's my lunch bowl, Parmesan offered to those interested. I continue to be mindful of sodium. 2 servings are now in tubs in the fridge.
Thinking ahead to the upcoming week, I looked over what remains in the fridge, what needs to be used up. DD and DS tote lunches to work. I grabbed a box of sale plus cpn Suddenly salad. I don't think I have ever bought it before. One doesn't get alot, but this will work.
After preparing the salad as directed, I removed the remaining meat off of 2 partially used, BBQ split chicken breasts that need to go. This is the protein source for the pasta salad which I will offer up in tubs that are lined with salad greens and chopped tomato. Perhaps a quartered, hard boiled egg will accompany.
