Tag Archives: lunch

I read this article on thedailymuse.com and I was just shocked that I hadn’t discovered this great way to make a lunch (Link to article below).

I’ve tried almost all the recipes, but my favorite remains to be the Caprese Pasta Salad. Mine is pictured below.

Caprese Pasta Salad Ingredients (as per article)

  • 2 tbsp basil pesto (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 ½ oz fresh mozzarella, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 2 oz cooked penne pasta
  • ½ cup fresh spinach leaves
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped

My reason for sharing is simply how easy to prep these are. I prepared these on Sunday and here I am eating it at work for lunch on Friday – tastes great every day of the week. It’s filling, but also tastes so fresh and healthy.

I’ve been feeling a little health conscious these days. Planning meals (lunches especially) has become a bit of a hobby. Here’s what a sample lunch looks like for me these days. The nutritional information is below in case anyone was wondering – not sure how healthy it really is. But it’s good 🙂

I’m having lunch and really enjoying it though my choices aren’t the healthiest. But the onion rings are SO good here LOL. I don’t think I’ll be eating the burger though…So I’m at A School and my training group is on hold due to our small size (and the holiday yesterday). This means that, for the week, we are janitors. Now this may sound horrible, but it really isn’t. My first assignment was to sweep the third deck of the female house (building).


Then after some light lollygagging I got the assignment to weed the garden by the quarterdeck (which I love to do anyhow). I can’t walk by it now without feeling a sense of pride – it looks good. That’s all I’m saying! Haha

Now when I get back from my lunch break I’ll work some more ’til about 3:30 p.m. Then we’re off for the day until we muster before bedtime. And this is what I’ll do for the rest of the week.

I plan to hit the gym or go for a run this afternoon.

P.S. The milk tastes like water so I’m not finishing that. But this white cheddar broccoli cheese soup is pretty good. Salad last…

Talk later,
