I really liked this. It needed some hot tea, but I forgot to bring mine. Why is the only non-caffeinated tea offered in most offices the most vile stuff possible? Just because I can't have caffeine does not mean I A) want to be put to sleep with chamomile or similar (which, by the way, is great at night but awful for afternoon tea) or B) don't like the flavor of actual tea (there is decaf, people!) or C) enjoy all those weirdly artificial fruit flavors.

I'm not crazy about sautéed spinach on its own--it tastes good but seems to coat my teeth with something I can't get rid of without just wearing it off--but the mushrooms seem to prevent that. I'll have to note that one for later. (It was actually just one of those "this stuff is going bad and I need to use it up" things, but it worked out well.)

I did not feel like cooking last night, so this is a prepped-from-what's-on-hand lunch. It worked out fine. What exactly is Boom-Boom sauce? This stuff was left over from an order of onion rings, and I liked it's spiciness, so I kept it for lunch purposes, but I don't quite know what it is.

This lunch comes with tragedy. The idea was to top the tamale with chili and heat it up in the microwave, which I did. I have had my Laptop Lunches box for maybe five or so years, and I have microwaved lots of stuff in it (these containers are microwave safe, after all!), without incident. This time, the chili may have stained the blue container.
I hate it when stuff like that happens, but we'll see if it wears off--sometimes that happens, and after airing out a little, it's become less noticeable, I guess through the magic of sunlight or something. That is, after all, how the beet stains gradually fade.
The meal was good, but that will be overshadowed by the scarred lunchbox. And they don't even make this one anymore. This was the original box. Today's version looks quite different; you don't have the little slots in the box to keep your containers in place, etc. I am sure I will get over this travesty, but I'm rather sad for the moment. Does anyone have advice for de-staining plastic? I'm guessing that's just not possible.

I made the chili with Neat, which I had found on clearance at Target. It was actually pretty good! Let me know if you want my recipe.

I didn't realize this was a blood orange until I sliced it open. That one was quite the surprise!

The original breakfast sandwich had high fiber whole grain white toast, a bit of mayo, swiss cheese, ham, a fried egg, tomato slices, and mashed avocado. The egg turned out not to be fried the way I liked, so I took it out of the snack half. You may still see traces of egg yolk, though. This worked pretty well as a snack. The toast wasn't crisp by the time I ate it, but it wasn't soggy, either.
