That title applies to my lunch …
And subsequently to my stomach.
When Mildred and I left the site visit this morning, it was just about time for lunch. Her husband works in the neighborhood where we were, so he came and joined us for an impromptu Mexican feast. I was actually just going to eat the lunch I had packed while they ordered their meals, but Mildred insisted that I “let” her treat me … so I did. I’m nothing if not compliant ;-). I ate loads of those chips above — they were still hot! — and most of the guacamole and salsa.
I ordered the most beautiful chicken quesadilla:
(By the way, this was a real Mexican restaurant with no sort of fancy whole wheat, fat-free/soy cheese, yogurt-instead-of-sour-cream options. Sometimes, you just need to roll with it!)
I ate the whooooooole thing. Riccardo got another dish of guac, and I used that to smother the quesadilla post-picture, too 😀
Plus tostones (x3!):
And some of Riccardo’s fish (x2!) and all of the onions and peppers that came with it (unpictured):
On our way out, I grabbed this candy to eat because it was pretty:
Phew, I was F-U-L-L. No need for dinner tonight. Thank you, Mildred, for supporting me through two whole meals!! The lunch I had packed is resting securely in the fridge at work to await Friday’s lunch (no work tomorrow because I have class).
Back at the office, however, I did still go a little sugar-wild with a strawberry lollipop:
And a baby Heath bar bite:
And approximately four unpictured mints. And the two dates and two prunes extracted from my packed lunch:
I’m home now and snuggled in my pjs with a mug of sugar cookie sleigh ride tea and an evening palate cleanser of 1/3 cup yogurt mixed with about 2 tbsp of my morning pumpkin gingerbread crockpot oats:
What size is your belly today, and why?
