If you forget your lunch…

November 9th, 2011

…Don’t come to my office. It’s a gray, rainy November day, the kind you just do not want to brave even in the car (worse would be snow, weatherguy says that’s coming soon). So I went up to our freezer (we have a full size kitchen) and found one link of a two-pack of Eckrich polish Kielbasa (the big packs, and yes, I ate the whole thing, I’m sure it was 3 servings), 6″ of a frozen garlic bread (I had one of the halves), two clementines and one mini coconut milk ice cream bar. Lunch of champions, indeed! I feel all jittery from the nitrites and all slothlike from the transfats (I exaggerate.)

I had *just* bought four lean cuisines to keep at work for just this occasion. But they are still at home in my freezer there. I usually have soup too, but we ended up with only the cream soups left (can’t have dairy) so I’m soupless, to boot. But NEXT time I forget my lunch, unless those Lean Cuisines come here soon, I’ll be eating croutons and coffee beans with ketchup, so I’d really better plan ahead.

This morning I started out at a 7:30am board meeting for a not-for-profit business women’s group. Hubby called me to ask what was the plan for the dog. Plan? I Have no plan! I would have to go home (and I could have rectified the lunch situation then) But I grumbled and resigned myself. She has to come with me, she’s 13, she can’t stay home alone without crossing all four of her legs at some point. And then I emerged from my meeting after 9am and there was a doggie in my car! By chance I’d just mentioned to hubby “well I can’t take her to (office name)” and he remembered, and dropped her off. Taking the kids to day care too, what a nice guy!

The weird scrounged lunch is over, I’m back to work in a minute. Hope you’re eating better than I am at this lunch hour!
