Pitas, leftover lemon-pepper chicken, mayo, lettuce….everything I need? As I surveyed the counter, I mentally calculated what I would need for lunch and a snack that day at school. Lunch would have to last me through til dinner, as I had OM until 6pm. And I would definitely want a snack at OM.
Opening my wonderful, brand-new Fit & Fresh, I began packing my lunch. Lemon-pepper chicken pita sandwich went in first, followed by the ice-pack. Now, what to have for a snack?
Back over at the refrigerator, I reviewed my options.
I should probably have something healthy. But there are cookies. And I do need two snacks….but two sets of cookies would be delicious. But I should have something substantial at OM….
As I argued back and forth with myself, I decided to compromise. I reached into the crisper and pulled out the new bag of crispy, orange baby carrots. I glanced at the side door and saw a small package of ranch dressing. Perfect! So the healthy aspect of the snack was taken care of.
I smiled as I pulled out my cookies, the delicious Surprise cookies I made over the weekend. I decided three would be the perfect number. As I placed them into the container, I was dismayed to figure out that only two cookies fit into the container!
As I came to terms with this, I looked over my lunch. Would it be enough to sustain me through the day?
I am going to be starving when I get home….I better throw something into the crockpot.
