Mmmming and Num Nummmming

by Meghann on February 25, 2009

When I came to work this morning I had no clue what I was going to have for lunch. Then as the day went on and my hunger started to climb, I began daydreaming about what was in my fridge and how I could incorporate it all in to a wonderful, edible creation.

As always my creativity got a little out of control and in the end I pretty much threw everything I had in a bowl, but boy, oh boy, it was good!

I started out by steaming up some Kale with a Small Chopped Apple, I then topped the bowl of greens with some baked Butternut Squash, Asparagus and Black Beans.

The flavors complimented each other perfectly! I was mmmmming and num numming the entire bowl. I’m actually sad the meal is over, I would happily eat it all over again.

After the bowl of greatness I had a piece of Godiva.

This one was filled with Raspberry and honestly not my favorite. I’m not the biggest fan of fruit filled chocolate, especially raspberry.

This morning I reached outside the realm of bars and had Unsweetened Apple Sauce and Teddy Grahams as a mid-morning snack.

Wow, I can’t believe its 3:00 already! The work day is almost over… woo hoo!!

hey meghann

do you leave your office to make lunch at home, and then head back?

5 Meghann February 25, 2009 at 3:34 pm

Hey Melanie! Yes, I am luck enough to live about 5 minutes from my office so I have just enough time to run home, let my puppy out and make a great lunch. I get very spoiled doing this every day. 🙂

Wow, that bowl is scrumptious!

16 Andrea February 25, 2009 at 4:10 pm

I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets sad when a good meal is over!

That lunch bowl looks great – I love heated up fruit. It adds so much flavor and sweetness to a savory dish!

I completely agree with you on raspberry filling in chocolate. The only exceptions I can think of are the Kashi bar or the TJ trail mix, but I think it’s because they aren’t the real, fancy chocolates. When it comes to something like Godiva, I am not a fan, either.

That snack = total childhood memories! I love it! Lunch does look very num nummmming-worthy!

19 Rachel February 25, 2009 at 4:20 pm

Lucky you had such nummer ingredients on hand to throw into a good lunch! I need to work on keeping more fresh produce around for just that. I always love your creativity!

20 Shelby February 25, 2009 at 4:26 pm

Nothing like delicious veggies for a quick lunch!

21 Erica February 25, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Hey! Looks like you made a fabulous lunch! I love unsweetened applesauce! Its such a great snack- especially with a little cinnamon!

22 Allison February 25, 2009 at 4:50 pm

That bowl looks fan-damn-tastic! 🙂

23 Meg February 25, 2009 at 4:50 pm

What a perfect blend of flavors for lunch!

24 Natalie February 25, 2009 at 4:59 pm

Awesome lunch bowl!

25 Erin February 25, 2009 at 5:15 pm

Looks like a gorgeous lunch – I’ll withhold on the pee jokes!

26 Missy (Missy Maintains) February 25, 2009 at 5:27 pm

Pretty lunch! So lucky to get to go home during the break!!

27 Mica February 25, 2009 at 5:50 pm

That’s a great bowl of lunch goodies! Props to you for spontaneously throwing it together!

28 biz319 February 25, 2009 at 6:55 pm

I do the same thing! I think “what can I put together with what I have got” – you end up getting very creative!

Looks good!

29 Derek February 25, 2009 at 6:56 pm

How many godiva’s do you have left? Can’t be very many…

30 Maggie February 25, 2009 at 7:14 pm

I’m pretty sure you just inspired my dinner…. I have bnut, asparagus, and kabocha in my fridge and this look divine!

31 Julie February 25, 2009 at 10:19 pm

How cute! Applesauce and animal crackers haha good call. Is your friend Derek the one you went to for valentines day? Very cute!

32 Rose February 26, 2009 at 10:58 am

I love the random lunch. I have kale in the fridge and have been wondering what to do with it – so this is a nice suggestion.

33 Diana (Soap & Chocolate) February 26, 2009 at 11:08 am

Yeah Teddy Grahams! So old school, so good. I love the chocolate ones, but I never think to buy them! Good call.

34 Marianne March 1, 2009 at 9:31 pm

The fruit filled chocolates always make me angry when I pull them out of the box. Give me anything else – nuts, vanilla, coconut, caramel, chocolate, I’m happy. Fruit filled? Ick.
