Listen to the Music

Wow, today's lunch hit the spot! It was nothing special... a basic sandwich, carrots, hummus, and a couple of treats. Honestly, I wasn't really "looking forward" to lunch at all. Once I starting eating, however, I realized my lunch was exactly what I was craving! Every bite was enjoyable and satisfying! I love it when that happens! :)

Ham and cheese sandwich with French moutard on Ezekiel bread...

Baby carrots with roasted red pepper hummus...

An almond cookie with apricot preserves from my coworker's stash of wedding shower goodies...

A well-rounded lunch...

A second treat: Two chocolate-almond-wheat germ-dipped-apricots...

question about your Rotel you think you could use fat-free cream cheese without sacrificing too much taste? thanks!

The chillies in the Rotel add quite a bit of flavor, so I think the fat-free version wouldn't hurt the dip's taste at all. Let me know if you try it with fat-free cream cheese! I've been wanting to try it with plain yogurt too.
