Another Desk Lunch

by Meghann on February 13, 2009

Eating at your desk is no fun. I much prefer enjoying my hour and driving home to be with my puppy, but unfortunately today I have to save that extra hour so I can leave at a somewhat decent hour and beat the traffic to Tampa. Such is life.

My original plan for lunch last night was a left over tofu sandwich, but when I started packing every sandwich component in separate little baggies, so I could make an apparently complicated sandwich in the office kitchen, I decided against it and went with the sandwich alternative… salad.

I had a bed of Mix Greens that I topped with uncooked stir fry veggies, tomato, pecans and tofu. On the side I had some of the leftover Country Bobs Stir Fry Sauce I made for for dipping.

Can I just say how much I truly love tofu? Every bite of the salad that included a piece of tofu was heaven. I love the texture, I love the flavor, I love tofu!

For dessert I dug into half of a Kit Kat Blondie.

Soo good!

And for those of you who requested it, Amanda sent me the recipe for the Blondies below.

Blondies

  • 2/3 c butter, melted
  • 2 c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 – 2 c mix ins (chocolate chips, trail mix, chopped candy…whatever suits your fancy!)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 pan.
Mix melted butter and sugar until sugar dissolves. Cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder, and baking soda until blended. Stir in mix ins.
Spread into prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 36 bars. (I cut mine into 8 giant bars…that part is a trade secret. :P)

I also noticed she left this in the comments as well. 😉

It’s Amanda, aka kit kat blondie baker…I am not a professional baker yet, but I am thinking about it…I take requests, so email Meghann for my email if you want to place an order! (that is, if Meghann doesn’t mind… ) )

There you go!

Mid-morning I had an apple for a snack!

Well that’s it for now. My postings may be a bit sporadic this weekend, as I’m really not sure what the plans are and if I’ll have internet. We shall see. I hope everyone had a wonderful start to their weekend!
