Ken took leftover meatballs and rice, a piece of fruit (an apple I think) and one of my multiple choice cookie bars.

today is more leftovers. this no bread thing is gonna kill me. i was going to have a tuna sammich, but.
the tuna salad would be pretty gross eating a scoop out of my palm.

I eat lunch at home and dh eats at work. Our dd went off to school yesterday with a whole grain bagel & cheese sandwich, cucumbers, banana, and milk. The bagel alternates with peanut butter and natural fruit spread on whole grain. Sometimes she'll take leftovers if it includes rice. Her lunch box isn't very exciting.

i would, but i've given up all types of bread. i'll still eat some crackers, like cheese nips, but they are more of a chip / cracker type snack food, not resembling bread. a regular ol' saltine or table water cracker is just like bread, imo. thanks for the idea, though.

so far, so good. i passed up italian bread with dinner wednesday, then garlic bread with our grilled chops thursday, and last night we had japanese food, so there was no bread.

sundays are going to be tough. that's when my boy and i go to an italian and a polish bakery for fresh breads, meats, cheeses, and salads for our lazy sunday brunch. (the polish places do rye bread, hams, cured fishes, polish bacon and butters, and the italian ones do hard rolls, semolina bread, portugese rolls, cheeses, cookies, and cakes).

but i'm off the hook this sunday. we're taking the little guy skiing!!!! yay!!!!!
so hopefully, we'll catch a quick breakfast in a diner a get to the mountain, and i will ski down with visions of banana bread moguls, and open, gladed runs of tiramisu...

buckytom,
Why are you giving up bread? Is it a digestive thing?

i gave it up for lent, jg.

i gave it up because it is something i love, so it'll be difficult. since then, chefjune and a few others have pointed out the health benefits. sort of the silver lining.

Monday - sausage jambalaya, sliced peaches, iced tea
Tuesday - chile relleno, rice beans, albondigas soup (I went out to lunch)
Wednesday - homemade creamy potato soup, applesauce, and gingersnap cookie
Thursday - I cannot remember, so it must not have been that memorable.
Friday - jambalaya (it is my favorite and I had lots of leftovers), sliced pears,
