Another work day where noon arrived and I hadn’t consumed a bite of food yet. Either I am a dumb ass or I’m over-worked. Smart money places a bet on both.
In light of the fact that I neglected to bring the lunch I packed (dumb ass pulls ahead in the odds) and that today may be one of the last summer-like days we have here for a while, I decided to walk four blocks to our newly refurbished City Market in search of food.
I found a little cafe that touts fresh, local ingredients. Sold.
I decided to make this just another meatless Monday and ordered a grilled veggie pita with a side of black bean/corn salad. The veggies included zucchini, mushrooms, onions and a variety of lettuce leaves, with some mozzarella cheese (hardly any, really) and garnished with a mild remuolade.
The sandwich was very tasty –veggies were still crisp but nicely grilled — however in the four blocks I had to walk back to my desk the pita got a wee bit soggy.
Note to self: EAT SOMEWHERE BESIDES YOUR DESK ONCE IN A WHILE!
The black beans should provide enough protein to power me through water aerobics tonight, and the red onion in the dish should ensure no one wants to get close to me for the rest of the afternoon. Win/win.
Second note to self: Make this at home! Nom!
