For good measure, I made sure to enjoy a couple of cream cheese fingers during the process. 😉
The cream cheese used in today’s meal is my new favorite cream cheese spread.
Philadelphia spinach artichoke, baby! It reminds me so much of spinach artichoke dip and I just adore it.
(And no, I haven’t tried Trader Joe’s new peanut butter cream cheese. We don’t have a TJ’s around me. It’s sad.)
Along with the cream cheese, I topped my bagel with fresh zucchini slices and served it with a side of carrot slices and Greek yogurt with jelly.
I remember hearing some people claim that carrots are kind of sweet a couple of years ago. I would roll my eyes at them and think they were total loonies, but now I kind of get it. Maybe eating other vegetables makes you realize that some veggies actually do have a sweetness to them? Broccoli + Asparagus = Not sweet. Carrots + Corn = Sweet!
All in all, this was a great lunch!
Cats vs. Dogs
Well, it’s that time of the year again and the competition category is another age-old battle.
Late this morning, my coworkers and I filled out our respective brackets (available online here) and will be avidly checking Jezebel to see who clinches the throne on April 5. (I have the golden retriever coming out on top. Shadow from Homeward Bound? I mean, c’mon!)
Our brackets have been posted around the office where everyone can judge and scrutinize each other’s picks. It’s a blast!
Now I ask you the lingering question…
Do you prefer cats or dogs?
I grew up with cats (Tiger, an energetic tabby cat, and Smokey, a seriously psychotic black cat) and I absolutely adore kitties. Ryan and I would have one if it weren’t for my allergies. But, I must say that Sadie has grabbed onto my heart and made me a dog person. She’s so joyous, funny and completely crazy and I kind of love her. 🙂
