Junk is important too...
I got an interesting "package" in the mail yesterday! The post office damaged a piece of my mail and they very carefully taped it back together and placed it inside this nice plastic envelope that had a ready-made, three-paragraph apology printed on the outside.
They very sincerely apologized for damaging my mail during handling, apologized all over the place because they realize my mail is important to me, I have every right to expect it to be delivered in good condition, yadda yadda yadda.
The kicker is -- it was a piece of junk mail! You can't see it here, but it was ripped in four pieces that someone very c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y taped back together before putting it into the envelope.
I have this "thing" about eating green leafy veggies but sometimes I get plain tired of eating a salad, you know what I mean? At lunch time I eagerly trot into the caf at work hoping to get a hot vegetable... it's a bit frustrating when all they have to offer is mashed potatoes and peas, broccoli if you're lucky.
I've started fixing my own lunch when I have leftovers. I like this combo - 1/2 cup brown rice in a bowl topped by 1 cup spinach, with a bit of cheese over that, topped by chicken meatballs.
I found the chicken meatballs at Costco, they are actually pretty good. Teriyaki with pineapple, ginger and garlic. I nuke the whole thing about 3 minutes, the cheese melts into the spinach and I'm all set. I have my starch, green leafy, and protein all in one dish! I also like their Tequila Lime chicken slider patties.
Did you notice my new counter at the top on the right? My retirement is fast approaching, woot-woot! A friend of mine retired on December 30 and did a "victory" exit - went directly to Disney World the next day! Now that's style!
