Summer Crunch

Hi! I'm alive.

See that's me back in May at the 5 Boro Bike Tour. Waaaay back in May. I packed a lunch to sustain me during the 42 mile ride. I stuck it in my basket.
Yikes, this was a long time ago...Cara Cara oranges were still in season.
I also packed a turkey and cheese wrap for the ride.

Now I'm just going to show you a tiny sample of the lunches I've been taking to work since we last chatted.

Those little beige pellets are Puffins. I was a little obsessed with them in June. Great in milk, but also perfect to crunch on as a snack/side dish at my desk. Puffins and salad have been pretty much the featured players in my lunches this summer. Lots of crunchiness.
Salad and Puffins!
Rinse. Repeat.
Now I'm kind of over Puffins. I had a few unfortunate run ins with the Cinnamon Puffins one too many times so ... Well, let's not go there. We were having such a nice catch-up.
I've been boiling a whole bunch of hard boiled eggs on Sunday night and packing them up for breakfast in the mornings. Good stuff.

That's all for now. I'm really going to try to get back to blogging the way I used to (i.e., more than once every 3 months). Also, I have to show you guys the delicious Summer Coq au Vain that I made in the slow cooker and have been gobbling up every day this week. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
