Welcome to February

Where did January go? Ours was filled to the brim with new puppy love and lots of cold weather, but I still can’t believe February is already here.

I’m very excited for February because our trip is in less than 2 weeks!!! I think I’m ready? I’m sure that feeling will go out the window once I’m trying to pack ;)

I decided to start February off with a bang – bourbon in my oatmeal this morning, and a fruit + veggie fest at lunch.

I bought some brussel sprouts for me this week (Nick doesn’t like them), so I roasted 1 pound of sprouts with some broccoli to have with my fancy-schmancy sandwich.


Yum! I need a stove top AT work so I can make fun things like this for lunch in the office.


Today, I used the last of my blue cheese dijon mustard that I got at the Foodbuzz Festival! So sad – this jar made some great meals while it lasted.



My grilled sandwich had:

  • 2 slices Nature’s Pride Honey Wheat bread
  • last 2 tsps blue cheese dijon mustard
  • 2 slices of swiss cheese
  • thinly sliced apple
  • ham


All grilled in a little bit of olive oil. I’m telling you, grilled sandwiches in olive oil is SO good! I love butter, but olive oil is a great way to get a good crispy texture (and is much better for your heart!)


I’m off to take Maggie on a short walk around the neighborhood before getting back to work.

If you could make anything for lunch at home, what would it be?


  1. Ham and fancy mustard–that sounds delicious!

  2. That is a delicious looking sandwich! I love fancy mustard!

  3. Wow that mustard sounds delicious!

  4. I always want to make sandwiches like I got in spain. Fresh Iberico Ham, Manchego, slightly spicy mustard grilled in olive oil. Such memories.

  5. perfect combination for a sandwich. i love mustard soo much

  6. I often wish I could make lunch at home. I think I’d make things that involve the stove since I don’t have one at work.

    I don’t know where February went, but so far 2010 is looking so much brighter and happier than 2009.

  7. That mustard sounds sooo delicious! If I could make anything at home for lunch, it would be an amazing wrap/sammie. I don’t have very high aspirations ;-)

  8. I wish I could make lunch at home sometimes! And I never think to put apple in a sandwich but that does look pretty delicious…

  9. That mustard sounds divine! Thanks for the giveaway shout out too :)

  10. I just got a HUGE craving for roasted brussels sprouts! They are going on my menu for next week…thanks for the inspiration :)

  11. yum. i love brussle sprouts!!

  12. That sandwich looks delish! And I love brussel sprouts!

  13. After working from home Thurs. and Fri. I have a newfound respect for you. I had SUCH a hard time staying focused on work!

  14. i’m pretty sure you are the only person on earth who can manage to make a ham and cheese sandwich look so gourmet!

  15. I love “interesting” mustard! That one sounds great!

    Have a great week!

  16. your lunch looks amazing! I didn’t get that mustard, and now that I think about it, I don’t think i have ever seen a blue cheese mustard.

    I love roasted veggies – so easy and so delicious!

  17. I am a mustard whore – I’d be all over that mustard!!

  18. That lunch looks superb! Roasted brussles are just about my favorite thing and I LOVE that mustard. I actually just bought some a few days ago and it’s nearly gone already! I put it in just about everything though, so it’s no surprise that I am running low.

    Hope you had a wonderful day hun!

  19. Oh my goodness – MUST find that mustard! I am a mustard fiend.

    And I agree – being able to make nice warm, grilled lunches at work with the convenience of home would be the best! I view days I get to make lunch at home as a special treat. I love a big veggie and hummus wrap, with red pepper, red onion, romaine, hardboiled egg, tomato, pickles, and mustard – then pressed on a panini maker real quick :)
