What's for Lunch?
With our busy lives, it can be a challenge to find time to really stop and enjoy this mid-day meal. I've been trying to make it a ritual to go out or prepare a special meal for myself at least once a week, on a day when work demands don't require that I eat at my desk. Here's what I've been up to lately.
Last week I treated myself to an alfresco lunch at a nearby Italian restaurant since our weather was finally gorgeous. Because it was a little later in the afternoon, I had the whole patio to myself!
Caesar salad, prosciutto and tomato sandwich and a new magazine... can't be beat!
I also picked up these huge, sweet strawberries on the way home.
Today I sliced them and used them in a spinach salad with smoked salmon, Parmesan and a few whole wheat crackers. Simple perfection!
What's for lunch at your house?
