- turkey sandwich
- corn on the cob
I have to admit, I was a little unnerved by having so much plastic to throw away after lunch. I'm not a rampant environmentalist by any stretch of the imagination. I mean, I'm not stomping on baby bald eagles or anything but I also don't have any problem with using cars and air conditioning and most of the other mod cons that are effectively ruining our planet. However, it does bug me when I wrap all my food in plastic baggies and Saran wrap and then throw it all away. Especially when I have a perfectly good lunch kit! I did feel a little better by using the strawberry box as a bento and I stuck the whole thing in a little paper shopping bag. All that, and then my after work plans got canceled. Oh well, I guess I kind of inadvertently proved the point I've been harping on about: You don't have to have a cute lunch box to have a great lunch. I really enjoyed my plain old turkey sammy and simple (un-Nutellaed) fruit and veggies out of all the plastic. It was just what I needed after a manic work week. That being said, I can't wait to go back to my little kit on Monday. Have a great weekend!
