Lunch has always been the most boring meal of the day for me. In school, it was something I quickly grabbed between classes while trying to catch up on last minute reading for a discussion section later that day.
Then work started and lunch was a little more fun. I almost always packed my lunch and ate it with a few others who did the same for about 20 minutes, then back to work.
Now that I work at home, I’m trying to make sure lunch is more fun (hey, a lady needs something spice up her day). Have you noticed that lately, we’ve all been so preoccupied with brunch that we’ve forgotten about lunch?
Let’s do lunch.
Let’s keep the meal healthy and balanced. Last week, I had some fish with sauteed squash. It was all sorts of tasty.
Today, I had tuna.
Tuna sounds not exciting, and I have no idea how to make it look good. But when you throw it on a salad with some barley, it’s a winner.
Tuna is seriously underrated.
Now that food is set, let’s chat…
The Discussion Topics
In the World:
Aziz Ansari is hilarious and wrote a book. Here’s a bit about it in Time.
FIFA is still being nuts, but the Women’s World Cup just started! Why can’t we be as excited about this World Cup as the regular one?
Let’s talk about GMO foods for a minute… Fear or fact? “The anti-G.M.O. movement, I’m afraid, risks throwing the baby out with the bathwater. What is needed is a dispassionate look at what G.M.O.s mean and their actual and potential good, not just a fear of harmful possibilities.” <– Agreed!
In MY World:
I walked past Tartine Bakery twice this weekend and didn’t eat a croissant. Who am I?
Instead, I ate pupusas at Balompie Cafe in San Francisco, and they were all sorts of tasty.
I hiked at Tennessee Valley in Marin yesterday and forgot to bring sunscreen. Fail. I’m sunburnt. But that aside, I hung out with my friend Emily for the first time in years. She’s awesome. We talked about how much we love having girl friends. I’m a girl girl, and I’m cool with that.
Do you tend to have friends of the same or opposite sex? And more importantly… What did you have for lunch?
