My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 386: Shout out to my homies!


Back to the


Pseudo-health-food This lunch is dedicated to Maria, one of my coworkers. See all that pretty steamed carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash? The zucchini and yellow squash came out of her garden. She gave me a bag of homegrown produce after I gave her a purple sweet potato. (She ate it raw. Don't make that face - sweet potatoes are actually pretty good raw, as she proved to me. The orange ones taste and crunch much like carrot.)

I also have chicken salad mini-pita sandwiches. Saw cute little mini-pita breads, bought a bag, and decided to make teeny two-inch-diameter sammitches with 'em. The chicken salad doesn't have a lot of mayo, so as not to turn the pita all soggy. Then there's the everpresent baked purple sweet potato, and a fruit salad made with persimmon, grapes, and lychees. This fruit salad looks a little like a Sesame Street monster, admittedly not by accident.
