Lunch and Laps

Well, it was back to the drive thru today, and my 45-minute lunch consisted of some of my favorite things. I made this sandwich with toasted wheat bread, turkey, cheese, and Newman's Own Light Honey Mustard. It is the best. Really. That's one secret. Another is to toast that bread right. Don't just Pop-Tart that mess. You need to toast it. Then immediately put a slice of cheese between the two slices of bread and allow it to melt a little. In the meantime, I run to the TV and pop in a disc of 30 Rock. Then return to the scene of the bite, add some turkey, honey mustard, et voila! Garnish with half a bag of SunChips (Garden Salsa), and lunch is served.

I find this sandwich to be the perfect combination of savory and sweet, crunchy and chewy, and healthy and quick. That's a lot of adjectives for a little meal. Plus, most sitcoms on DVD are around 21 minutes, which is ideal if you work for lunch Nazis. Note: special episodes often run 42 minutes, indicating a possible two-night arc or extended scheduling block during original airing.

After work and some downtime at home, I went to the track for a little cardio session. If you think that time is going too quickly these days, then throw some laps into your life. Time will slow. I promise. But now that I'm home, I feel revitalized, even though my hair looks not unlike this guy's:


  1. favorite part-" Don't just Pop-Tart that mess"-that made me LOL at work.

  2. PlllllEEEEeeeeaaaaase!!

    P.S. That sammy looks delish!

  3. I was admiring the toast on your toast before I got to the description of a proper toast. I take special care in how I toast my pop tarts as well. They are better with a double toast as to properly warm through without burning. I'm just sayin.
