"The Only Thing That Can Make This Day Better Is Ice Cream"

January 26, 2009

Quote, Michael Scott, The Office, Season 4. And the inspiration for our post-pot-luck snack :)

Cara made Kelsey and me tiny ice creams with chocolate sauce and berries to round out our lunch of antioxidants.

Backtracking…. we had a colorful lunch!

I brought citrus fruit and bread

Cara brought vegetables, hummus, muenster, and her kitchen. We broiled the sandwiches in the oven so the cheese would melt.

And Kelsey brought spinach salad with tomatoes, feta, walnuts and dressing.

My sandwich was quite large, so I am very full now – mostly of produce!

We watched The Office over lunch – episodes I haven’t seen! It’s so exciting that I have 3-4 seasons of my favorite show unseen. Netflix needs to start ASAP!

And of course we had the bit of ice cream for dessert. I think we’re set to get through Foodservice now :)

What a fun lunch! And you can’t beat The Office.

Sometimes, my husband and I watch those full episodes on NBC.com in my office during lunch – it makes it so much better!

What a colorful healthy lunch! It’s so much fun to potluck with friends. I need to do that more often. Enjoy the rest of your day!

I’ve been watching The Office over dinner for years (we have every season on DVD). It’s the perfect length, and of course – quite enjoyable.

And the citrus looks great – I never thought to slice up grapefruit like that.

13 Marianne January 26, 2009 at 2:21 pm

Oh, the Office…the show is hilarious, and yet so uncomfortable to watch sometimes!

And now I want ice cream.


14 Victoria January 26, 2009 at 2:25 pm

Sounds like a perfect mid day break. :)


15 Jessica January 26, 2009 at 2:26 pm

What a nice lunch once all came together. I watched the office today too, this morning as I exercised :o)


16 Jasmine (Sweet and Fit) January 26, 2009 at 2:31 pm

aww, The Office!…in other words, the funniest show ever =)


17 Katherine January 26, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Unfortunately my office and potluck today does not consist of delicious sandwiches and watching the office! Haha looks like fun!


18 Heather McD (heather eats almond butter) January 26, 2009 at 2:37 pm

What a beautiful lunch. Ice-cream is a major guilty pleasure for me, but it’s just been too cold lately. I’ve been indulging in hot chocolate with whipped cream instead…That’s what she said. :)


19 Erin January 26, 2009 at 2:38 pm

One of Michael’s many brilliant quotes. :) My fave:
That’s what she said…or, he said.


20 Maggie January 26, 2009 at 2:41 pm

That spread looks awesome! I need to find friends that love good food 😀


21 The Duo Dishes January 26, 2009 at 2:42 pm

The salad looks so fresh and yummy. Very similar to what we’re eating for lunch today!

23 ModelBehavior January 26, 2009 at 2:49 pm

You know your getting a variety of nutrients when you get that many colors in your lunch! Bravo!



24 Jennifer January 26, 2009 at 2:59 pm

Yummy! I wish I could have whole peppers more often but they’re just too expensive.


25 Anne P January 26, 2009 at 3:20 pm

yum what a fun looking lunch!


26 justjen January 26, 2009 at 3:33 pm

I LOVE that you still enjoy little bits of joy food here and there, instead of always being all about the vegetables and protein!


27 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) January 26, 2009 at 3:38 pm

What a beautiful lunch spread!!! Chocolate and berries…best way to get antioxidants. LOVE IT!!


28 Sarah (lovINmytummy) January 26, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Hey Kath!
I’m a high school student who is very interested in health and nutrtion and looking to pursue that as my major in college. I was wondering if you could tell me what courses your taking, if you are doing clinical hours, etc.
Thanks so much!


39 Michelle January 26, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Pretty lunch! I love ice cream! Such a weakness for me!

41 Sarah W. January 26, 2009 at 7:16 pm

fab lunch!


42 Christy January 26, 2009 at 7:39 pm

I heart The Office! Ricky Gervais was just on Inside the Actors Studio which was hysterical. If you can DVR it, I would. He gave some cool insight about Michael Scott’s character. Now I have to see the BBC version. Have you seen it? Oh yeah, beautiful lunch!


43 Summer Slim January 26, 2009 at 7:42 pm

I totally agree, ice cream always makes things better! It looks delicious! :)


44 Kath January 26, 2009 at 7:43 pm

seelee live,
yup! Another nutrition classmate.

45 Sharon January 26, 2009 at 7:52 pm

Wow, what a fun time! That is awesome!


46 Denise January 27, 2009 at 1:16 am

Everything looks so fresh and scrumptious!

I am a HUGE Office Fan!


47 Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) January 27, 2009 at 2:14 am

What a fantastic lunch!


48 Marilyn January 27, 2009 at 11:28 am

If you have NetFlix (and it sounds like you do), you can watch The Office instantly from their website, instead of waiting for DVD’s to come in the mail. 😉
