Same Old, Same Old

October 27, 2008

I’ve got a boring Monday going on here. Nothing exciting to type about!!

‘Cept maybe my yummy leftover dog! I had a pesto one from Saturday night’s party on an Ezekiel bun. I ate him cold with some mustard and it was so delicious! This would make a great quick lunch to pack since chicken sausages are usually pre-cooked. If you like, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds before you pack your lunch. I’m definitely going to have this again.


I also had some of Kate’s fabulous cranberry walnut salad. No dressing – just delicate greens, walnuts and cranberries.


Grapes –


And Chobani with the bottom of the Quaker Oatmeal Squares. I sifted through the squares to get to the smaller sized pieces.



I don’t think Organic Lab ( 👿 ) should be too painful today since we’re wrapping up 2 weeks ago’s topic. Just a bit more time to kill before I go.

Chicken sausage is great! I had some last night – it had gouda in it and was delicious.

Have fun at organic lab 😉

I love eating the cereal from the bottom of the box when its all crushed. Perfect for yogurt. It also tastes the best to me for some odd reason.

I never thought of eating a cooked sausage like that before.

I like to roll my bananas in the bottom bits of cereal – the best is Kashi Go Lean Crunch!

the bottom of the bag is the BEST! love the little shreddies :)

have a great day!!

6 Beadie October 27, 2008 at 12:51 pm

I love the chicken sausages from TJ’s and the flavor selection is endless!


7 Jenny October 27, 2008 at 12:57 pm

Mmm mmm I recently discovered chicken sausages, they ARE great!!!

Good luck at lab! :)

Looks like a fab lunch to me! Love salad greens with lunch–they make the whole day better!

That devel face that pops up every time you talk about org. chem. cracks me up!


9 coco October 27, 2008 at 1:10 pm

your lunch is much more interesting than mine!

This may sound like a silly question, but do chicken sausages taste like actual sausage? I hate sausage but like kielbasa (polish sausage). I’ve been wanting to try the chicken version but want to make sure that I’ll like it. Thanks!

Goodness I love chicken sausage – Applegate Farms (I think) makes a chicken and apple sausage that is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Delicious!!


12 Lee October 27, 2008 at 1:53 pm

Yummm, the salad looks so pleasant!! and do you usually snack kath? i don’t see them too often


13 Krista October 27, 2008 at 2:03 pm

Awesome looking lunch! I always use the bottom of the bag crumbs, too!


14 Jessica October 27, 2008 at 2:45 pm

Hi Kath!

Long time reader – but this is my first comment.
I love your blog! We have the same love for pretty plates+bowls, oatmeal, and lists. =P

But let me tell you how envious I am of you and all the american readers! There are so many foods available in the US that I’m just dying to try, but aren’t available in Canada. Greek yogurt, tons of Kashi products, etc! I wish we had more of a selection!


15 VeggieGirl October 27, 2008 at 3:03 pm

I’d take a boring Monday over a super-stressful one like mine!! Enjoy :-)


16 Megan October 27, 2008 at 3:23 pm

What a delightful lunch!


17 Lisa October 27, 2008 at 4:12 pm

Lol, there’s another Lisa posting, and oddly enough we share a deep love of crunched-up cereal! I’ve been known to tilt the bag and deliver the little bits directly to my mouth. I mean, otherwise they stick to your fingers and you get all crumbly.


18 Teddy October 27, 2008 at 4:50 pm

The dog looks pretty good! good luck with school tonight


19 Hot Garlic October 27, 2008 at 5:22 pm

You are so disciplined to eat lettuce with no dressing! I love those greens, but I only can do it if I’m REALLY desperate i.e. if there is only French or bottled ranch dressing available. Nasty.

I love pesto, the dog is screaming my name!

Good luck with your lab {which is probably over by now!}

Mariel ,
It totally depends on the sausage. Some are designed to be more like pork ones (the sweet Italian we had this weekend, for ex.) but others are wacko in the flavor dept! There’s one I LOVE by AmyLu – Apple and Gouda. And cabernet and I saw Chardonnay recently but it had onions in it :( Pesto, jalapeno, sundried tomato. All kinds of flavors! I would say they overall do tasted like a hot dog though.

Lee ,
I don’t snack often. I used to LIVE by snacks, but I’ve found that I got a little obsessed with thinking about them and have moved more to having bigger meals. I often need a snack around 4-5pm but not always (like today I didn’t have one, but did have a few PB bites).

Jessica ,
Thanks for your first comment!



21 Mara October 27, 2008 at 7:43 pm

Mmmm chicken sausage.
Must purchase!


22 zestycook October 27, 2008 at 8:38 pm

Kath, super exciting lunch actually – I never guessed you would eat a cold dag… I love it – I will have to try it.

I love the whole “healthy hotdog” thing. I’ve been eating the Jennie-O turkey beer brats. They’re a bit small, but yummy.
