SATISFACTION vs well.. SATISFACTION...

So how is it I could wander around a grocery store this morning and find absolutely nothing I wanted for lunch today.. mind you I have a lunch.. I just wanted something different. I am having a WW calzone and I like those.. but I still just wanted something else.. so I thought SUSHI.. Yummy.. nope.. no fresh Sushi at 8 am. did not even see the Sushi makers there.. so that did not work.. I called Steve and told him of my predicament when I left Publix he said .. tonight we will go back to the store and pick some good lunch alternatives... I.E. Turkey Pastrami, light cheese, light miracle whip ( yes I like my miracle whip better than mayo) light bread.. and maybe some bakes chips.. we will also get some yogurt and start making bigger dinners so I can bring left overs.. he even mentioned about me bringing Talapia fillets to work.. putting a little lemon pepper on them and nuking them... I dont want the office to smell like fish so I am not sure if i will try that one or not.. Ususally I get by on a lean cuisine..but even with the bunches of choices in frozen meals.. nothing else tripped my trigger today... I might pick up some sushi tonight and have it for lunch tomorrow.. and of course I can go to the Subway up the street I like their lighter sandwiches.. so thats an alternative.. usually though I prefer not leaving the office... However on Thurs and Fri I will have to go home at lunch to let the doggies out ( the weather is suppose to be stormy.. and we all know Cookie prefers the bed rather than the storms... lol.. So feasibly I could stop at Subway either tomorrow or Friday and pick up lunch.. will have to think on that one.. I could also go down to Fresh Market and pick something up ie. Sushi or something..... There is a Mcalisters right next door to my office however I prefer not ordering from there... if anyone has any lunch ideas... BRING 'EM ON... leave a comment and let me know... there are tons of fast food places nearby, there is Publix, and FRESH MARKET near by.. Whole foods is a little to far away unless I go there the night before.. there is a Thai place in walking distance too. ( a little pricey for lunch) those are my choices if I do not bring lunch.. so if anyone has some good brown bag ideas aside from frozen meals.. I am all ears.......
We watched Nip Tuck last night.. I think its the season finale not sure.. LOVE THAT SHOW.. in a weird sort of.. well weird way.. love it... and of course we watched the boys sing on AI ... there are about 3 I am impressed with the others .. well they are as Simon would say forgettable... will watch the girls tonight...
Well back to work...
Wish me well
Wish you well too

I sit down each month and make a monthly meal plan with options to choose for breakfast, lunch, etc. It helps to just look at the list and see what I'm in the mood for and know I have all the ingredients on hand! Hope you find some other lunch options that you like! Have fun!! ; )

Happy lunching.

Now I want sushi, LOL :)

But I know what you mean, I do the same thing. I will go in the store looking for a lunch or something to snack on and walk the entire store and nothing appeals to me. It's so weird.

Julian McMahon is a beautiful man!
Is he available for lunch?
I kid.
Do salads float your boat?
I bring a huge salad from home and mix up the fixings. Always some kind of protein: tuna, chicken or hard boiled egg, cheese. always either kidney beans or chickpeas.
some nuts. olives. of course the salad greens and veggies.
I bring a yogurt and some fruit.
Since there's alot of protein I'm always full for a long time.
You could spend a few hours on a weekend cooking up batches of favourite recipes to bring and nuke.
