I have a ton of packing to do (and we all know how I feel about that)…
… Plus I have some things I must do in my personal life before heading overseas. I need a “free day!”
I would also love a free day because I’m having such a difficult time concentrating on anything other than my upcoming trip. Whenever I’ve opened up a document to make some edits at work today, my mind starts thinking about things I cannot forget to pack or about how flippin’ excited I am! I’ve clearly got ants in my pants!
Fortunately filling up a tumbler of hot tea puts me into “work mode” for some reason, so I have managed to get some pivotal things done at work this afternoon. Phew!
Lunch today was so, so good! I love it when I pack a lunch for myself that ends up being exactly what I’m in the mood for when lunchtime rolls around.
Today I made a big salad that included lots of fresh veggies.
In the mix:
- Butter lettuce (My new favorite kind of lettuce!)
- Orange, yellow and red pepper
- Grape tomatoes
- BBQ pulled chicken
- Balsamic vinaigrette
The chicken was definitely the highlight.
The lowlight = Grape tomatoes. They were too squishy and honestly made me gag. I ate one before eating my way around the rest. What a bust of a buy!
The totally off-putting texture of the grape tomatoes got me thinking about how texture affects what foods we love and hate. For the most part, I can put aside texture in favor of flavor, but there are certain foods I just can’t enjoy because of their odd texture, namely canned green beans, canned mushrooms and overly ripe tomatoes. Bleh!
Question of the Afternoon
- Are there certain foods you avoid solely because of the texture?
