A box.

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Know what this is? Sure! A to-go box.

What's unique about it? Nothing, really. Except that I never use them. I always eat whatever is presented to me at a restaurant, no matter how vast or small.

Today I took my daughter out to our favorit breakfast spot: Jim's Place. Normally, I get 'The Special,' and my daughter hates that I never add variety to my breakfast choice. But I gave up meat for Lent, and my choices were limited. I got a veggie omelet, which is animal products + cheese, too, but oh well that's what I decided on. And it was HUGE! Normally, I would have just eaten it all.

But today, for the first time that I can remember, I ate till I was full, and then asked for a box.

So here it is. My box. A second meal, or a big ole snack. Yay!

Hope everyone is well on this Saturday!

    I'm loving your countertop. We had one in our house that I grew up in. Brings back good memories. Enjoy your big ol' snack.

    Giving up meat for lent ...that's great. That is a significant sacrifice. And a great opportunity to explore a lot of other new foods, besides. Congrats on your diminishing appetite!
    We should invent a smaller carbon footprint re-usable take away container for the leftovers?
    Your daughter must have been surprised at two big changes in your routine.

    Oh, meant to ask if you are using this guideline for 100 pushup challenge:
    I downloaded it after I joined the 100 Pushup Challenge team here on SP.
    Worked for me!

    Good for you! A little tip I picked up on is to ask for a box right away. Once your food is served you can divide your meal up so you don't eat it all at the restaurant. You can just eat what's on your plate and then you're done! emoticon

    To-go boxes are great!! We don't go out to eat often but I always seem to get a to-go box for my lunch the next day. My other half always says, "Why don't you JUST finish your food!" My reply is, "I'm full!"

    Great Blog emoticon

    P.S. Some of my friends have made fun of the 1962 gold flake counter top in my kitchen. Sure, it's dated. But if you ever go to Graceland, you'll notice the exact same counter top in Elvis' kitchen.

    If it's good enough for The King...
