For lunch today I decided to walk somewhere and get something decent that was not Au Bon Pain. And then I went outside. Without a coat. It's COLD! So, I walked the two seconds it takes to get to Au Bon Pain, thoroughly intent on getting the soup mixture I tend to devour on a regular basis: chicken noodle (without all the broth) and a topping of broccoli/cheddar. Add some crumbled crackers and it's fantastic! And warm! And yummy! (OK, enough enthusiasm...)
But - I'm a little tired of that concoction because I tend to have it 2-3 times a week. And then I saw... Macaroni & Cheese! *swoon* So, yes, I decided on a (small) cup of Mac & Cheese, grabbed an apple for something healthy and went back up to the office "café " for a nice comfort-foodie type lunch. So I'm sitting there eating my low-fat Mac & Cheese (believe that? got a bridge I wanna sell ya!) with my caffeine-free Diet Coke (it all balances out), when one of my friends pulls out this huge platter from the refrigerator.
"Huh? Oh, it's leftover cheese platter from a party the other day!"
"Hum. Wouldn't it be all hard and icky by now?"
"Mrpmph.. nomph, iss priddy good!"
Uh oh. So yes, for lunch yesterday, I had Macaroni & Cheese, with a cheese chaser! (Heck, it was good cheese! Mozzarella, cheddar, Swiss, monkey jack, and mmmmm smoked Gouda! And grapes!)
Yes, I did eat the apple and grapes as well, so it was a very nicely balanced meal... right?
