5 Minute Lunch

by Meghann on August 12, 2011

Things I need to do this afternoon:

  • Bank
  • Laundry
  • Pack a bag for the weekend
  • Empty the dishwasher
  • Take out the trash
  • Clean kitchen
  • Publix
  • Answer e-mails
  • Wrap up projects
  • Blog

Hours I have to do it all in: 3

That should explain why my lunch looks like this.


Sweet Potato. Marinara Sauce. Ricotta Cheese. Done.

Lunch in 5 minutes or less or bust.


At least it was good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek and I are heading to his family’s beach condo for the weekend. There’s no internet in the condo, so I’m hoping to sneak to the office to get my fix while we’re away. This will be my last hoorah before the craziness of next week begins!

Anyone else escaping for the weekend?!

Nope! No plans on the weekend….just switched to a new host, so that should be taking up most of my time. For 5 minutes, that lunch looks pretty darn good.

Have fun at the beach.

No escapes for me ๐Ÿ™ but I have a busy crazy week coming up. At least the weather is expected to be nice so I hope to do a bunch of fun stuff outside before the long hours at the office start. Have fun on your getaway!

Just a relaxing weekend at this casa. A romantic dinner for two last night, Winter Park farmer’s market this morning, and if I can convince my boyfriend to go to the beach tomorrow, then that’s happening!
