Cotto salami on rye with dijon mustard. Oh, and pretzels. (Hoorah, brown baggin'!)

And then probably some crappy dollar store, trans-fat-infested creme cookies. Mmmm...

After taking the dogs to the park and then a quick walk, I made a package of ramen noodles :r: while I took photos of the garden and uploaded them to the computer.

Hmm, got our first softball game tonight, so I'm heading to the Bear Tooth Theaterpub to fuel up (and because I have to run an errand in the area ;-)). Probably have a seared salmon burrito, halibut tacos, or some pizza. Too many good options to choose from! :)

Defrosted frozen dinner (of the "lite" variety), low fat yogurt and a fresh pear. Washed down with bottled water.

Tomorrow: more of the same, just a different flavor of yogurt.

One very large Fuji apple (non-organic, probably pesticide laced) and some organic bite-sized cheese crackers.

Unhealthy b*(&ard!! Did I mention my deep fried chicken and fries were made from fair-trade-free-range-organic chickens and potatoes? Free range potatoes are particularly healthy for you - potatoes grown in confined spaces on corporate-owned farms have lots of stress toxins in them and the consumer gets all that poison when they eat 'em - organic cheese crackers are worth two manna points towards the Afterlife but otherwise you sound like you need both a major aura cleansing and yin adjustment.

And they were no doubt deep-fried in ultra-virgin oil refined in the purest organic methods by cloistered ultra-virgins. FYI, my aura is resplendently glowing and I've been assured that yin and yang continue to be harmonically in balance. I'm convinced cutting the organic cheese is the remedy to the hole in the ozone layer.

Oy! This reminds me that deciding what to eat has become WAY too complicated: Should I buy the locally-produced but pesticide-enriched apples, or the organic MacIntoshes that traveled by truck all the way from Washington State, consuming several tanks of diesel fuel? Should I boycott all products from countries that kill baby seals, or only avoid eating the overfished, er, fish? :-c

Had lunch with my kindergartener today. The institution served us cheese pizza (complete with cardboard backing), canned pears, chocolate milk, fresh broccoli and cauliflower with low fat ranch dip (gack). Had to forgo the geletin cube since we don't eat animal bone marrow. After I got back to my office I ate a GIGANTIC chocolate chip cookie from Jimmy John's.

Tomorrow the Institution is feeding us waffle sticks!

Tuesday is Hockey Night in Northern Colorado

Therefore, I will be loading the carbs at lunch with a potato and rice vegetarian burrito. Usually I get this at a burrito place near the rink as I get my skates sharpened Tuesday lunch, but I will be heading home and making my burrito myself.

Today, I made a steak sandwich from a leftover steak we had from Sunday. Steak on buttered toast...mmm. Doesn't get better than that.

Surprise lunch out today.:D

A former coworker, and still a friend, came by my building to pick up plans. He stopped in to see if I was ready for lunch, and so we went. I introduced him to a local cafe, and he was pleased with his Chicken Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes. I had breakfast! Yummy!

Belated Father's Day lunch with my eldest, he paid.

Tilapia Chihuahua (not what it sounds like, but lightly blackened tilapia in the style of Chihuahua with tomatillo sauce and with tortilla chips). Salad and sides of fries and borracho beans. Mmmmmmmmm!

Lunch out with my mother today - not planned! She called as I was leaving my morning meeting, and we met up at a Mexican place near my office.

Yummy!

Homemade chicken noodle soup. It does count as home made when one uses a canned broth, right?

Canned broth is OK, I also use a bag of frozen mixed veggies.

My lunch? Nada. I have not had a meal since Tuesday afternoon. Dunno. just not hungry...

NO WAY! In order for it to be truly USDA Certified Home Made you must:

1. Butcher your own chickens (51% of which must have been raised on premises free range)
2. Made all your own noodles
3. Grown all your own vegetables
4. Cooked the soup in a cast iron vessel using firewood for heat.

I second that but also:

1a) Chickens must be at least 3rd generation free-range from said premises
4a) Cast Iron shall consist of local ore and had been hand forged.

But the real point is: Did you have to put the ingrediants together, adjust seasonings, establish amounts, cooktime and heat level? Then it is homemade.

if it came from a can, box, store, or other and only needed heating...it is not homemade.

Yes and:
5) the water must have been fetched from a well or stream using a wooden bucket
