Soup, Salad, Swiss

Only one more day until the weekend!

I’m just hoping this storm that’s on its way brings snow and not ice :\ I’d like to be able to go outside and play, and with ice…that’s not really an option. I guess we’ll see in the morning!

I love my lunch today.


Yup. More of my sourdough bread. I may have it with every meal today.

This time, spread with about a tablespoon of Sabra, 1 slice of swiss cheese and toasted.


I had my hummus + swiss toast with some Campbell’s Blended Veggie Soup (it’s great for a boxed soup!) and a HUGE salad.


This is what I love about working from home the most – being able to make WHAT I want, when I want. And not having to drag all this stuff to the office ;) Plus, we don’t have a kitchen at work, so I can’t toast anything anyways.


My salad was a great mix today:

  • spinach / romaine base
  • broccoli
  • red onion
  • carrot
  • sliced almonds
  • craisins
  • dressing made with whole grain mustard (I’m out of dijon!), balsamic, and olive oil


I’m trying to hurry and eat so I can take Maggie out for a walk –


She’s ready to play!




Tomorrow is GoRed Day!!! I’m wearing red – are you?


What’s your favorite bottled dressing? Homemade dressing?


  1. Hey sweetie! Man those eats are right up my alley. Im loving the huge bowl of veggies. I swear I could eat that everyday. And I love all the amazing breads that you have. That sourdough breads sounds awesome!

    I actually am not a huge fan of bottled dressing. I like to make my own. My favorite one right now is one I got from Averie actually. Its canola oil mayo, with apple cider Vin. and some stevia. So good. It tastes like a cole slaw dressing and I love just dumping it on my salads.

    I hope you have an awesome day hon!

  2. hummus and melty cheese is an amazing combo! you’re definitely lucky to have the convenience of working from home. i love being able to buy food at the dining hall and eat in my dorm etc… next year working in an office 8-6 is going to be a huge shock to me :/

    love all the giveaway links – thanks!!

  3. I am pretty simple with salad dressing. I am just and oil and vinegar kind of girl :D

  4. So jealous that you can make lunch at home! The kitchen at my office is the worst!

  5. I used to be able to make lunch at home three days of the week, but now my hours have changed so I have to be at work at 11 every weekday! Which means lots of canned soup and PB&J for me ;-;

  6. That’s why I love that my office is right downstairs from my apartment. So I can just dream up what I want and go eat it for lunch. None of the I don’t want what I packed blues.

  7. hope you can get outside and play! you seem to just be hammered with snow lately

  8. That toast sounds like such a good side to soup. I love hummus on toast.

  9. Mmm, nothing metter than toasted cheese and soup!

    Re: Spanglish- I really liked it! It has its flaws, but it was a lot better than I thought it would be.

  10. mm that sourdough bread looks fantastic!! and broccoli!? yum :) perfect lunch in my opinion.

  11. I have a sourdough grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup for lunch today – comfort food HEAVEN! :D

    Have fun on your walk!

  12. ah what delicious alliteration you’ve got going on there ;)

  13. oh my gosh, if that face doesn’t say PLAY WITH ME, i don’t know what does!

  14. When you say toasted do you mean put under the broiler? Your cheese looks so fantastically browned.

  15. I love your lunch today too :) Can I have some bread, please?! Hehehe…gosh your pictures are absolutely gorgeous!

    Aw that cute lil’ Maggie just brightened my day!

    THANKS A MILLION for posting a link to the contest! You rock. Fingers crossed tightly! I can’t believe how long it lasts — March 31? I’m going to be anxious every day!

    Have a lovely evening!

  16. That hummus and toasted cheese looks pretty dang good, I might have to steal that for myself!

    Love all the colors in that salad.
