Desk Dinner

This evening, I am eating a lame, sad desk dinner. Here it is.This means that when I get home at 9:30 or so, I will probably want some real food, but I hate to eat and then go to bed. I won't actually go to bed until 12 or so, but you know what I mean...it is late to eat a meal. Dang it Bobby! Note: You can't tell from there, but that was my Hank Hill voice. It's heelarryus, really. Um, or not.
Geez, this must be my worst post EVER and that is saying a LOT!

Over the holidays..when I was working late, the usual desk dinner for me was a package of Raman noodles (chicken flavored) with the water mostly drained out and only half the seasoning. This was coupled with either a Vitamin Water fruit punch (Revive) or a Vitamin Water citrus (energy. Good eats (best Alton Brown voice)

I had a sad desk lunch yesterday. I usually go home for lunch, but it was snowing like crazy yesterday. I had a lunch of peanut butter and crackers and a bottle of water. Mmmm mm! I hope you had a hearty meal when you got home!

Evil-E: That is the exact same way I eat my Ramen noodles! Maybe I need to try some Vitamin Water.

Tara: Apparently crackers are the new sandwiches or something like that. I hope you had a delicious dinner later in the day :-)

I will often eat a late dinner. Sometimes just a yogurt or a frozen thing-a-ma-bob. Or a full on pasta meal... but usually it's just fast fud... please insert umlaut over the u in "fud" so as to pronounce it correctly.

Good post, really.

There are so many free lunches at my office.

MiniJonB: haha! Fast fud, excellent choice for a late night repast.

Dmarks: Aw, thanks :-) Lucky! When we get free meals around here it is SUCH a big deal!

That's a great desk dinner. It lacks only one ingredient for perfection: Cherry Twizzlers.

If you bite them at both ends they can double as straws for the Coke.

Then you've got all 4 food groups covered:

Grains -- in he crackers

Fruits and vegetables -- that's why you need the Cherry Twizzlers

Filler -- whatever's between the crackers

Bubbles -- in the Coke.

(This may be why RFB is in charge of meals around here.)

When I forget my lunch, I eat meals of Cheetos and donut holes. Actually, those are some of my favorite lunches.

DiDC: I knew something was missing! I bet you can guess what else I am going to start storing in my cabinet...

Churlita: You covered your salty and your sweet there, so it is all good.
