The Ploughman's

The Ploughman's Lunch
After my run the other night I was lazy. I knew that I wanted something but i wasn't sure what. It turned out, I craved The Ploughman. I bought a melon, apple, I had gruyere, got some deli "meat ends", and a french baguette. When I got it and cut it all up in my appropriate portion sizes, it took up two plates. Which was awesome.

[my plates are 1950's plates which are much smaller than plates of today]

Since I had it all cut up and ready, I brought it in for lunch the next day too. It's funny, the shift in eating that I've had from now to back in 2009. When reminded by Courtney & Tracy to add in my fruits & veggies, I actually did it. I need to get experimental with my fruits & veggies though. I really want to learn more about greens, kale, etc.

I also found a little article about baking "hard-boiled" eggs in the oven and i've got a full dozen to bake up this weekend. My lunch box is a make shift bento box and while i've not gotten adventurous in the "design" of the food like a traditional bento, I have gotten adventurous in all the stuff I put in it. New fruits, new cheeses, new meats. I've got a long way to go but the single living lady in me is thankful for The Ploughman.
