Pin It Post two on vegging out. As mentioned in post I, we need it. Towards the end of vacation, I was feeling a little sloth like. I am already starting to feel better.
A little side note about life in Belgium: In Belgium, most employer's have a canteen (cafeteria). Additionally, most people eat at them. In the U.S., I was used to bringing my lunch everyday. Anyway, here, we get meal vouchers - which is a certificate that is the same is money that can be used in the canteen or the grocery store or a really great Mojito joint in Leuven (a univeristy town, outside of Brussels, my colleague introduced me to). That's my favorite way to use meal vouchers. One mojito, one meal voucher. What could be better? It feels like you are getting free mojitos (and they are the best mojitos you will ever have). Every month, the day we get our meal vouchers feels like Christmas. Now, I am thinking about Mojitoooooooooooos!
Salad For Work
2 cups mix romaine and spinach, washed and dried
1/3 cup chopped yellow pepper
1/3 cup chopped cucumber
1/3 peeled and chopped carrot
Handful of grape tomatoes
1 hard boiled huevo (hard boiled to perfection: see how below)
Top with Sunflower seeds
1/8 cup sour cream
1/8 cup milk
Ranch Seasoning packet, to taste (Next time, it'll be home made)
Hard boil you egg. Put eggs covered in water in a sauce pan. Bring to boil. Cover the pot, turn off heat, and leave eggs sit for 12 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Mix salad greens with vegetables. Top with sunflower seeds. Store in fridge over night. For the dressing, combine sour cream, milk, and enough ranch seasoning to give it a nice ranch flavor. The next day, peel and add your hard boiled egg to the salad and pour dressing over the top. Put cover back on container and shake to mix. Salt & Pepper to taste.
I had a mango yogurt for dessert, and this held me over for the afternoon. What's your favorite way to brown-bag it??
