Laptop Lunches #126
Honeycrisp apple slices, Biscoff spread, honey glazed almonds, yellow bell pepper strips, celery sticks, leftover mozzarella sticks with cherry tomato garnish, carrot sticks, and yogurt ranch dressing.
I love Honeycrisp apples. They really don't need anything, but I wanted to try the Biscoff spread that came with the Goodies box. I had seen it in the store, but never understood what it was--apparently, pureed cookies of some sort, with something to hold it together. It's given as an alternative to peanut butter sometimes, and I guess it would work that way to some extent, but I think there's a nutritional difference worth noting between peanuts and cookies. I thought the Biscoff spread was just okay. I would prefer peanut butter.
Now that I'm looking at this, I see that everything is very horizontal in this box. It probably would have been nice to have something oriented vertically, but there is an orderliness to this, I suppose.
