Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll 3/29

Good afternoon Persephoneers! It’s Tuesday, so you’ve already got one day under your belt.  We’re keeping it super simple for today’s LTP, I want to know what you’re having for lunch.

I’m about to dig into a cup of coffee and a bagel, because I believe breakfast food works 24 hours a day.  What are you having today?

I went out to lunch (is that cheating?). Had some calamari and then a wild mushroom and goat cheese pizza. What made this the BEST PIZZA EVER is that they kept the base of mozzerrella cheese and just added goat cheese to that (no marinara). So delish!

My breakfast on Tuesdays is during normal adult human lunch time. I had my usual, “Cheesy Eggs”, which consist of a Morningstar maple sausage patty, Egg Beaters, and 2% milk sharp cheddar cooked in the microwave. I’m not a vegetarian, I just really like the veggie sausage patties. Sometimes I’ll have turkey sausage or turkey bacon cooked up in the freezer to add instead of the veggie patty.

I love breakfast food. My favorite meals are breakfast, brunch, and brinner. I might be an egg and cheese based lifeform.

Currently having a late breakfast bagel with butter and green tea.

Later, it’s carrots, celery, and HUMMUS. Maybe a cup of soup since it will be a long day.

But technically, for my lunch break, I’ll be having shoes at Nordstrom’s! I love that it’s across the street from my office. :)

It was actually one of those use what’s in my fridge inventions. I chopped and blanched the asparagus (scooped it out with a slotted spoon and kept the same water), added a veg bouillon cube and cooked the quinoa (about a cup), then made a basic béchamel sauce, added some sharp cheddar, stirred in some frozen spinach, then folded in the quinoa and asparagus. I also tossed in a couple spoonfuls of pesto. It turned out as a risotto-like consistency, but I think you could also bake it for a few minutes (maybe with some extra cheese and breadcrumbs) to make it more like a casserole.
