Good Food

by Meghann on March 5, 2009

Wow, it was a crazy day at work today!

Sorry I didn’t have time for a lunch post! My Supervisor and I actually had a wonderful lunch with our Webmaster today at the cutest little hole in the wall simply called The Mediterranean Deli. It’s just around the corner from our office and though I’ve driven by it a million times, I’ve never been in.

Everything looked and smelled great inside. The restaurant is no bigger then my cubicle at work and they prepare your meal as soon as you order it. I was so overwhelmed with the wonderful handwritten menu and delish pictures on the walls I had a hard time deciding which route I wanted to go.

Finally I decided on the Three Salad Plate which included: Greek Salad, Tabbouleh, Hummus, & Pita Wedges. I also grabbed a sample of one of the wraps he was preparing.

This meal was incredibly light and refreshing! I enjoyed it immensely and will happily return to this little gem. I can see why many of my co-workers frequently return from lunch with boxes of take out from the Mediterranean Deli.

When I returned to my desk for some reason chocolate was the only thing on my mind. Luckily, my supervisor has a stash of candy at her desk and I managed to swipe a Tootsie Roll to satisfy my chocolate cravings.

And before lunch I had a Kashi Peanut Butter Granola Bar as my mid morning snack.

For dinner tonight I was craving some sort of meat, which is really odd for me. I guess my body just felt like it was lacking it lately so I dug into my freezer and found a Turkey Italian Sausage to work with.

I cooked the Turkey Sausage on the stove top with some sliced Onion and Saur Kraut. Yum!

I stuffed the Sausage, Onion, Kraut mix in an Oat Bran Pita with Ketchup and Spinach. It was PERFECT!

I also was dreaming of the Yucca I had in the pantry all day at work

If you’re not familiar with Yucca, its a root, starchy vegetable that is prevalent in Latin American Dishes. It’s usually boiled in a lot of butter or fried up. I was craving the boiled version, but I can never bring myself to boil any vegetable so I steamed the Yucca for 15 minutes and then gently rubbed some butter on it. OMG I always forget how much i truly love Yucca.

I also had a small Pickle on the side.

It was a perfect dinner!

And I told you, you would be seeing my dessert from last night again.

I must say it has been a good day of eat. i will go to bed with a very satisfied belly. 🙂

The moleskin was a success! I covered my blister with a patch of the moleskin and the rubbing ceased for my 4 mile run. My legs are still not 100% back to normal yet, so it was a slow 10 minute mile run. But as I always say its better to approach things slowly then more »
