Stare if you want

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Today we had a day-long work event with typical low-cost calorie-rich catered food. Lots of pastries, a carb-and-fat-laden lunch buffet, etc. I got a few stares in the line as I put together my lunch, and also while eating, but I didn't mind. I covered my plate with salad greens, then ladled generous scoops of steamed veggies over them. It was the healthiest lunch I could put together and it tasted as good/bad as expected for bulk-cooked sterno-warmed buffet food. Okay, so it looked like a hot-and-cold mess, but I was happy with it.

Tomorrow I have to go out for a work lunch, and all the menu choices are too rich for my good. I'm thinking of being a pest and asking if they can combine two or three of the healthier sides to make a customized dish for me. Not sure if they will do that, and I hope they won't spit in my food for asking!

    You did a good job customizing your plate. Too bad for those others who looked at it funny (maybe jealous because they don't have your courage)! Hope the lunch meeting idea works out. emoticon

    You did great! My plates sometimes look a bit funny, family dinners the kids will comment....oooh, gram, all veges? Fact is my preferences have changed. I don't care in the slightest if someone else does not find my choices appealing. They aren't eating it! ---Pam

    Just loved your last line! Thank you for always making me smile!

    And good luck with that special request. I hope the cook doesn't "personalize" your customized dish!
