At the end of week 4 of the brown bag challenge, I have a few observations to make:
1. I eat a lot of pasta.
2. I will often forget about packing my lunch until right when I’m walking out the door in the morning.
3. I somehow managed to lose that Pyrex bowl. I may have left it in the little kitchen up here on the second floor.
4. I may have lost a little weight, too. I’ve been fastening my belt in the second position for a while now, but on Monday, I had to move to the third hole.
5. According to the Internet, the holes in a belt are just called belt holes. They have no special name.
6. I am slightly disappointed that belt holes don’t have a special name.
Here’s my recap of the week:
Fusilli with sweet potatoes, sausages, and various other veggies.
Here’s the thing about Tuesday. I packed my lunch, but I never ate it. You see, my wife had a meeting in the building, so she brought the kiddos with her. I entertained the girls while she had her meeting, then we went out to a local coffee shop for lunch. So I give myself credit for packing a lunch of leftover pasta, but I give myself a fail for not eating it. I had a tasty sandwich of salami, asiago cheese, and some kind of special relish from a place called Baked in town.
I ate a leftover cheeseburger. Technically, it was a patty melt. What’s the deal with that? A hamburger on a bun is called a hamburger, but a hamburger on slices of bread is called a patty melt. I don’t get it.
I didn’t pack anything else so I was starving by the time I got home. Starving.
I found another leftover hamburger in the fridge. This one had a bun. I also brought some leftover potato wedges. Sort of like steak fries, I guess. And a cookie.
Another bowl of Fusilli with sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, broccoli, and Italian sausages. And a cookie.
Sorry for the lack of images. Hopefully, next week I’ll be better at snapping photos of my food before I eat it.
I’m taking part in the Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag.
