Free Lunch

18 Aug

The annual staff appreciation lunch at work was today.  I e-mailed the coordinator last week to see if I could participate, and she said we were getting burritos from Chipotle and that she would make sure there was a vegan choice.  So, I was very surprised to find that we were actually having hot dogs and cupcakes!  Planning ahead is one way that I navigate events and eating out, and I was fully prepared for the burrito.  I like to visualize myself handling the situation well, and I had planned to take a burrito and bypass the chips or any other accompaniments.  However, lunch ended up being delicious and less points, so it was win-win.

    The tomato and grilled cheese looks super yummy! I’ve got to get that Uncheese Cookbook. :-)

      I would highly recommend it! Not every recipe is my favorite, but there are really some gems.
