I really think lunch has the potential to be my favorite meal of the day. I feel like I can get really creative with it and still keep it nutritious at the same time. I personally feel that if I was ever to open a restaurant, it would be a bistro/cafe.
On today’s menu, peanut butter and (homemade) pumpkin-pecan butter sandwich on (homemade!) wheat French baguette, with sides of carrots and (homemade) hummus and a peach.
If I had more food in the house, I’d eat something more interesting. I’d probably add cheese to the plate or make sweet potato chips or kale chips. I’d have a La Croix or a green tea instead of the Coke Zero I drank, but perhaps another day I’ll share that lunch with you. 😉
Speaking of lunch, yesterday’s lunch…
We went to Chili’s after church and I really wasn’t hungry after the three 6-oz cups of chocolate milk I had during Sunday school, so I was originally going to just order a soup. But then, as our server approached the table to take our order, I happened to notice the Smoked Chicken tacos with poblano peppers, cilantro, and cotija cheese with black beans and rice. Poblanos, people. How can I say no to poblanos?? I can’t.
It was oh-so good and now I have visions of poblano fajitas dancing in my head.
Of course, between still being “satisfied” from breakfast and the unstoppable force that I am with an appetizer basket of bottomless chips and salsa laid before me, I was STUFFED after one taco and all the black beans. I took the rest home and ate the other taco for dinner.
