Salad stains

June 28, 2010 at 11:47 am 8 comments

I keep dropping food onto my belly, thereby staining all of my shirts.  Of course today I am wearing a white shirt so the stains are clearly visible!  The same thing happened on Saturday.  I would blame the pregnant belly, but honestly if it didn’t fall onto the belly, it would fall onto the lap.  I am sloppy.

For a snack this morning, I had about 20 baby carrots.  I became more hungry after eating these than I was before.  Then my hunger died down until lunch, so I will call this a successful snack.

For lunch, I had a salad but of course!

Sadly, I forgot to buy avocados at the grocery store.  I am never as impressed with an avocado-less salad.  This one contains:

  • Baby spinach
  • 3 mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 slices of cucumber
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 6 dried apricots, sliced
  • Handful of unroasted, unsalted almonds
  • Feta cheese
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Mediterranean dressing

It was still pretty good.

Dessert involved breaking out my favourite chocolate bar!!!

I tried taking a photo of myself kissing this bar (because that’s a normal thing to do when sitting at your desk, right?), but it was a scary sight to see.  iPhone photography + office lighting = Plummeting self-esteem.

I love this bar so much.  The quality of the chocolate far exceeds the Cadbury Dark and the sea salt gives it such a great, additional dimension of flavour.  I always find two squares perfectly satisfying, which is not what I can say for almost every other chocolate bar out there.

Work is awfully quiet today but – shhhh!!! – don’t tell my boss.  I am hoping this is what the rest of the summer will be like this.  An office worker can dream!

    When I was pregnant, I would drop food on my belly ALL.THE.TIME. It was so embarrassing and then I decided to say screw it and ignore it. It really really helped.

    Now that E is here, milk is spilled all over the same areas so really, I’ve been messy for the last year or so and it really doesn’t matter!

      I love this comment! I am going to say screw it too. Pregnant/Nursing mothers with stained shirts unite!

    OMG I looooove that chocolate bar! I literally have a stock of it in my house all the time 🙂

    That is my favorite chocolate bar as well! The best part is what you said, that two squares are really satisfying. Mmm. I need to restock my supply.

      I am eager to try different brands of sea salt dark chocolate. I smell a new hobby on my hands.

    I always joke to my Mom that I need to buy her a bib! She drops things everywhere!

    Okay, I’ve never tried that chocolate before so I’m going to try it! I’m intrigued!

      I definitely recommend this chocolate. It is the perfect after dinner (or lunch…or breakfast…) treat!
