Laptop Lunches #167

Ham and herbed goat cheese pinwheels, jalapeno-stuffed olives, jalapeno hummus, multigrain water crackers, red bell pepper strips, celery sticks, purple carrot sticks, and heirloom tomatoes.

The ham and goat cheese pinwheels worked pretty well, but I don't recommend them without crackers, or it's too much richness.

Laptop Lunches #166

Pink grapefruit-flavored Greek yogurt, a blueberry mochi, some slices of granola bar, celery sticks, cucumber slices, carrot sticks, and heirloom tomatoes with yogurt-ranch for dipping.

This is also known as "I haven't cooked or been to the store this week and now it is Wednesday and I'm running out of ideas."

Lunchopolis #4

Cucumbers, yellow bell pepper strips, carrot sticks, jalapeno hummus, pretzels, and banana chips with caramel-hazelnut-chocolate spread for dipping. (Think Nutella, with caramel.)

I woke up and thought the four compartments of the Laptop Lunchbox were too many to contemplate, so I used the three smaller containers of the Lunchopolis set.

Laptop Lunches #165

Blueberry pancakes, a hard boiled egg, some ham rolls, a peach, and tomato slices.

Fun tip: if you add a bit more liquid to muffin batter, you can make it into pancakes. These started as blueberry muffin batter. And they turned out really well! Even without syrup (I guess I wasn't in the mood).

Pack-a-Snack #5

Mini cheddar pretzel thins and half of a stuffed egg (dill pickle filling) in the smallest container of my Lunchopolis set. No complaints.

New: Recipe Index Available

Since I don't have a lunch to show you today (free lunch during on-campus meeting), I have an announcement: I've been working on a Recipe Index that is up now! It's a work-in-progress, but I'll do my best to keep it up to date and logical. Let me know if it is helpful, or could be improved.

Laptop Lunches #164

Alternating slices of golden kiwi and green kiwi, mini 12-grain crackers, crunchy green bean snacks, carrot sticks, and goat cheese topped with blueberry jam.

I am disappointed in golden kiwi every time I buy it. Next time, stop me! It's not that pretty and it tastes pretty much the same as regular, pretty, green kiwi.

I am not at all disappointed in goat cheese with blueberry jam and crackers, though! That was soooooo good. But I should have had the sense to pack a spreader, since a spoon only works so well. Learn from my mistakes!
