formatting sucks it

blogger and i are going to have to fight soon. my format's all screwy and i don't have the time to fix it right now... so i apologize and will mess with it tonight

Monday, November 22, 2010


well, i'm on a roll, aren't i? if anyone ever starts reading this i will probably have to go back and hide some of the more useless posts. like this one will surely be. but that's one i'll cross later.

side note - it's taken 2 days to finish this post. and i'm only 5 badly composed sentences in so far...yep, day 3 now. i fail at blogging. but i'm finding myself totally addicted to reading them, which is inspiring me to try to write. i'm at work right now, which is NOT the place, but i just HAD to share my salad.

while we wait... and holy crap we're waiting a long time.

still waiting, and it's night time now. it was a big picture, so i'll just tell you and upload the pic when it shows up. it contained:


italian blend greens

chopped red, green, yellow and orange peppers

baby carrots

cherry tomatoes

portabello mushrooms

black beans

frozen veg blend containing corn, broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers

deli turkey

ken's light italian dressing


(edited to add pic)

marvel at its glory. right now. here you go:

and dinner tonight was also to-die-for. it was:

jennie-o turkey patty

trader joe's 21 seasoning salute (if you haven't had this, get it NOW)


topped with gouda, portabello, red onion, and sweet and spicy sandwich pal

on an aunt millie's slimwich. enjoyed with a mug of local brew (nit wit, mishawaka brew co)


and one more foodstuff then i'm publishing, dammit.

buffalo cheddar kettle corn. omg. this is local, but if you have access... get some NOW. at wal mart. you'll thank me.

that is all

intro / favorite lunch EVAR

so... yeah. here i am. hi i'm sam!

i honestly think it would be good for me to pay more attention to this thing, as my livejournal was very therapeutic. i just need to find the time. i'll start with something easy - a 'recipe'

guilt free gyro
(all measurements approximate/eyeballed... you're smart and know what you like)

1 tortilla / wrap of your choice (i prefer the ole xtreme wellness whole wheat tortilla - 76 cals and huge!)
2 oz deli sliced roast beef
.5 t mccormick perfect pinch mediterranean herb blend
1 T sliced white onions
.5 t parsley flakes
4-5 cherry/grape tomatoes, halved
1.5 T crumbled feta

lay out tortilla on a sheet of plastic wrap (for wrapping ease later)
place roast beef in center
sprinkle with herb blend, turning to ensure coverage
add onions
sprinkle with parsley flakes, again turning to ensure coverage
cover with tomato halves
wrap and seal in plastic

.25 c plain nonfat yogurt - greek style or strained (i strain)
.5 t dill
.5 t minced garlic (mine is packed in EVOO)
1 T shredded cucumber

combine all ingredients, stir and refrigerate. there will be leftovers

here's the messy part
place wrapped sandwich in microwave
1 minute, 50% power
1 more minute, 50% power

well... HERE's the messy part

open up wrap and slather with tzatziki. i used about half in my sandwich
sprinkle with feta
re-wrap in both tortilla and plastic to avoid drips


the remaining tzatziki is an excellent veggie dip, or an excuse to make another gyro.

well... first step's the hardest. let's see if i can keep it up.

that is all.
