Veggiefied

My lunch today was totally veggiefied!

Tuesday's Lunch

I topped a whole wheat sandwich thin with roasted red pepper hummus and portobello mushrooms.

On the side I nibbled on cauliflower and asparagus, roasted with garlic salt. It was d-to-the-e-to-the-l-i-c-i-o-u-s (Black Eyed Peas, anyone? 😉 ).

Hummus and Mushroom Sandwich with Roasted Veggies

Sadie may be one of the biggest veggie lovers I know. I snapped this picture of her giving me the “feed me” look as I was packing my lunch today.

"Feed Me!"

Here’s a fun little information nugget: Sadie’s favorite vegetable is broccoli.

Morning Snack

My morning snack was a cheese-tastic microwaved quesadilla.

Easy snacks are my favorite and microwaving a Colby jack string cheese stick on a whole wheat tortilla is pretty darn easy. Why is melted cheese so much better than cold cheese?

How Old is Too Old

Question for you meat experts out there… Is it dangerous to eat chicken that’s one day past the “sell by” date? If it’s just gross, I’m okay with that, but I don’t want Ryan and I to keel over after dinner tonight.

I put my 2/21/10 chicken in the crock pot this morning and it smelled okay… but does that make it okay?

Do you always toss food that’s past expiration?

For me, I toss food depending on the type of food and the smell. Old milk – in the garbage! Old cereal – in my bowl! 😉
