eats lately (travel + fast foods)


It was almost back to life as usual in the eating department after the excitement of having other people prepare your food for 7+ meals. :D

For lunch at the conference, they served us boxed meals like a turkey sandwich with a pretzel bun:


There were other people at the table with us (business people), so I felt super weird taking a picture of my boxed lunch. :) I didn't tell them I take pictures of nearly everything these days, I just let them think I was weird. ;)

The second day we had chicken pesto sandwiches on ciabatta bread, and they were so good they made me want to recreate them at home:


One night after the meetings were over we ventured out for Indian food and this place was yum:



We ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Biryani, and lots of naan bread:


I loved it, but we ended up eating in rotation because the baby wouldn't stop screaming, and the restaurant was tiny. (I hate to make others endure that, so we ended up taking her outside alone in turn.) The food wasn't cheap, but I thought it was great!

When we got back home, we were totally out of groceries so I kept it simple with things I had in the pantry for lunch:


We were out of sandwich supplies, so one day I threw together a pot of mac and cheese:


We were out of butter so I used olive oil and a little flour to make a roux and added 1/2 and 1/2, lots of cheese, and salt, and garlic.


Today we ran a few of our errands on my to-do list, and we stopped and got bake-at-home pizza for family night (plus 2 more not pictured):


Thankfully, we finally made it to the grocery store last night so I'm looking forward to making regular meals again soon. We are so blessed by God to have easy access to all kinds of food for crazy weeks like these! :)
