Today’s lunch was a total childhood throwback meal: English muffin pizzas!

The Goods

My pizza crust was a toasted Thomas’ light multigrain English muffin.

I topped the crust with marinara sauce and shredded cheddar cheese and microwaved my mini pizzas for approximately 50 seconds.

Of course I would have preferred to bake them in the oven to retain some crispiness, but you work with what ya got, don’t you?

Maybe one day break rooms will have a full kitchen with a stove and an oven… πŸ˜‰

On the side of my pizzas, I enjoyed steamed broccoli sprinkled with a little garlic salt.

Before lunch, I enjoyed a little dessert (because that’s the best part of the meal anyway).

In honor of Administrative Professional’s Day, our office indulged in cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream cake (Ryan, I know you’re jealous!) and I had a big slice. I remembered to snap a pick about half way through.

Ice Cream Cake

I forgot how tasty ice cream cake is! It totally should have won the cake vs. pie challenge!

Of the following “cakes,” which is your favorite: cookie cake, ice cream cake or plain ol’ cake?

Ice cream cake all the way!!! πŸ˜€ (Actually, I’ll take all three, please.)
