Eating My Way Through April

April has flown by!  I've had some great lunches lately.  Here are the highlights

  •  Left over thin crust pizza
  • sugar snap peas
  • bell pepper with balsamic vinaigrette dipper
  • peaches and blackberries

  • green salad with bell peppers and balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  • Greek yogurt
  • sugar snap peas
  • homemade quiche (smoked salmon, tomatoes, spinach)

  •  only thing new here is the pineapple chunks

  • special treat for me (not so special for the people within smelling distance of my desk)...smoked herring on toasted Ezekiel bread

  •  Baked potato! (6 minutes in the microwave wrapped in wax paper, stabbed with a fork a few times)
  • sugar snap peas
  • broccoli
  • a piece of Salisbury steak (made out of turkey meat)

  • Cara Cara oranges
  • watermelon
  • broccoli
  • Salisbury steak
I had a hankering for quiche so I slapped one together with some stuff we had in the fridge (eggs, milk, smoked salmon, tomatoes and spinach) and dumped it all into a frozen whole wheat pie crust. Et voila!  My fella went above and beyond and created a TV dinner standby from scratch!  He found this Salisbury steak recipe and worked like the dickens to make a big batch of it.  I tried to round out the rest of my lunch with fruits and veggies to off set the heaviness of a big hunk of meat in mushroom sauce.  

Lately, I've become a little obsessed with Instagram.  If you want to follow me just look for likeylou.  But, be warned, it's not just pictures of lunches.  It's mainly shots of my fingernails, pretty bikes, my friends and lots of weird stuff that I encounter in NYC.  Now, what's for lunch tomorrow?
