Crashing Lunch

by Meghann on March 26, 2010

I totally crashed my co-workersโ€™ lunch today. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I overheard their plans for Mellow Mushroom for lunch and automatically inserted myself into the conversation. I was on my way home for lunch, but Mellow Mushroom sounded so good that I invited myself along. I hope they didnโ€™t mind! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Usually I order the Mega Vegetable Pizza from Mellow Mushroom, but this time I decided to follow my co-workers lead and order a hoagie.

I started with a โ€˜lilโ€™ greek salad.


And ordered the Tempeh Hoagie โ€“ which was amazing by the way! So flavorful and delicious.


I almost managed to steal one of my co-workerโ€™s mellow balls.. aka garlic balls.


It was nice to get out of the office for an hour and just relax with my co-workers. The weather was perfect for a nice meal outside โ€“ I hope it holds up for the rest of the weekend!

Before I invited myself to lunch, I snacked on some trail mix.


I also had a lovely delivery!


A big THANKS to Emily for hooking me up some Naturally Nutty Nut Butters! I canโ€™t wait to try the Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter! ๐Ÿ™‚

Naturally Nutty = gritty nut (+seed) butters = Awesomeness!

Wish me luck on my photo shoot after work!

Good luck with the photo shoot!
I seriously contemplated a big spoonful of butter toffee peanut butter, and that was after going through a bow of oatmeal with it on top. I can not get enough of that

hope the weather holds up for you too! it’s supposed to rain/snow here (yet again)!

those garlic bread balls look SO good. we have “cheese” balls where I am from. Basically breaded balls of cheese. Dipped in ranch they are incredible…not so healthy, but i mean they taste too good!

Happy friday!

I love mellow mushroom. Everytime you post about it I get a tear in my eye because the closest one to where I live is 2 hours away.

Their pretzels are awesome, their veggie pizza is to die for and their beer selection is killer.

Have you ever made your own salad there?

34 Katherine: What About Summer? March 27, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Your friends are all gorgeous! girl time is so fun ๐Ÿ™‚ something I don’t get enough of- my school is 70% male. Are you around guys or girls more on a daily basis?

35 foodlovingpolarbear March 27, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Greek salad is so good, that mini one looked delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

36 Carolyn @ March 27, 2010 at 8:10 pm
