Today I’m here with a couple of my recent lunch time regulars.
Some days I eat lunch all by myself. When the big kids are at an afternoon class and the baby is napping, I get to eat late lunch in peace and quiet with just myself and maybe a literary friend too. I’m re-reading (/ skimming) The Primal Blueprint – I’m finding it more relevant now that I’m eating meat again.
A turkey burger with provolone on top of greens, shredded carrot and celery tossed in olive oil and balsamic. I am now one of those people who eats their burger without a bun. Some of the time, anyway.
And while there are some days when I eat lunch alone, most days I’ve got company in the kitchen.
Another lunch time favorite right now is a cheese omelet with a side of steamed broccoli. If I’ve got broccoli washed, trimmed and ready to go, this lunch comes together quickly.
Nothing fancy, but very satisfying – especially when you cook your eggs in a little butter.
And broccoli with butter too? No competition.
Kaz often sits in my lap during lunch, and I’ve recently been letting him taste some of the vegetables off my plate. Except “tasting” quickly evolved into full fledged eating, this boy is into food. This boy is into BROCCOLI!
It goes a little something like this (hit it!)
(This is not a haiku.)
Mom holds, Kaz tastes
Mom let’s go, Kaz takes
Kaz licks, Kaz shoves
Maxine disbelieves, what Kaz does.
(We’re running with Baby Led Weaning – no purees, no spoon feeding, giving him more control – I’m liking it!)
Current lunch fav #3 is a delectable tuna salad with a side of fresh crudités.
(You said crudité with a French accent, right?)
If I remember, I cut up extra veggies to have on hand for snacking or for lunch the next day.
Half a can of albacore tuna,
combined with half an avocado, a little Dijon mustard with S&P to make tuna salad.
This is a good option for eating while standing and/or running around trying to get girlies out the door on time and/or picking up plastic dishes off the floor.
Lunch is served! Eat veggies, feel good, you know the drill.
