Laptop Lunches #41

Stuffed egg (paprika mix), baby kosher dill pickles, a slice of swiss cheese (cut up), deli turkey meat rolls, poppy seed peppercorn water crackers, peanut butter-banana mini kebabs, and carrots and a few tomatoes with blue cheese yogurt dip.

Having eaten all of my leftover chicken in last night's fried rice, today was a no-leftovers day. I wonder why no-leftover days look so much like kid lunches? I don't intentionally set out to make kid friendly things, but looking at all this in the morning I shook my head at myself and wondered why I couldn't be more of a grown up.

I said I would try peanut butter-banana mini kebabs another way, and I am pleased to report that it worked. First, assemble them, then paint the lemon juice on. Also, in the midst of this, I realized that the lemon juice adds something important to the flavor, in addition to preventing browning, which I honestly find very strange, but I guess it's no stranger than Granny Smith apple slices (also tart) dipped in peanut butter, which I and many other people happen to really like.

This was about a B+. As I tell my students, it takes more than above average effort to get an A. I'll keep working on it!

    Ps As I am commenting on things this week I am reminding people that if you turn off your word verification stuff people will find it much easier to comment on your posts. Give it a go! If you are not sure how to do it, give me a yell by commenting on Carole's Chatter and I'll send you a step by step guide I did for a blog friend.

    1. I didn't even realize it was still on! I had it on for a while because I was getting a lot of spamming for computer parts and things. But you're right, word verification can be annoying.
