It’s my first shift back as a zombie drug dealer. Work was busy but steady, and that’s A-OK with me. Time passes quickly, and yet I still have time to perform normal bodily functions like eat and visit the loo. Thank goodness for small favors, huh?
While I was at the hospital, I ate leftover oven-braised drumsticks and stir-fried cabbage.
As a special treat, I also savored a bit of whole milk Greek yogurt with Bing cherries.
When I came home in the morning, the boys were already eating breakfast. I was relieved to discover that Big-O slept through the night without needing extra pain medication. Hooray!
After I dropped off Lil-O at summer school, I passed out for an unprecedented eight(!) hours.
When I finally crawled out of bed, I puttered to the kitchen to make dinner. I still had a leftover whole roasted chicken sitting in the fridge from the night before, so I decided to assemble a simple, hearty salad for supper.
I like colorful salads with contrasting textures so I hard-boiled half a dozen eggs…
…sliced up a bunch of baby carrots…
…sauteed mushrooms and onions in butter…
…and washed chioggia radicchio and lettuce…
…before tossing the leaves in a bowl.
Next, I shredded the leftover chicken….
…diced up an avocado…
…and mixed everything with some aged balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Here’s my salad bowl:
I even had enough leftovers to pack in my new mid-size LunchBots Clicks.
Last week, Jackie gave me a set of her new line of LunchBots Clicks — they come in pairs, sized small, medium, and large — and I’m crazy in love with them. I’m forever running late, so the food I pack for work always gets jostled around like mad as I dash from my house to the car to the hospital. I need lunch containers that seal tightly to avoid food explosions in my bag.
These containers DON’T LEAK AT ALL. Plus, they’re super light, durable, dishwasher-safe, cleanly-designed, and kid-friendly. Little hands have no trouble opening them, so they’re perfect for the Double-Os’ school lunches, too. Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of LunchBots Clicks in my future posts.
(Disclaimer: I’m friends with Jackie, but I’ve owned and adored LunchBots containers since before I met her. Besides, I would never endorse something I didn’t love and use on a regular basis!)
Over and out!
