I had lunch with quite the fabulous gal. You might even know her. She’s young, vibrant and very cultured.
She also likes to make appearances in Campbell’s SpaghettiOs.
Yes, my friends, I ate SpaghettiOs for lunch. SpaghettiOs with a sliced hot dog.
And they tasted AH-mazing.
Six and a half months ago, I would have never dreamed of bringing such a meal to work but when you are pregnant, some things just sound good. Like pickled jalapenos or cantaloupe or SpaghettiOs with hot dog.
And for as bad as my lunch could be, so processed in all, I have to say it could have been worse. A can of SpaghettiOs contains 340 calories, two servings of vegetables and 8 grams of fiber. My hot dog was of the 98 percent fat-free variety and I paired the bowl with a side of grapes. I could have also picked another childhood favorite – mac and cheese with pennies (aka sliced hot dogs – do I smell a theme?).
After lunch, I even went for a short jaunt – a .8-mile roundtrip walk to get a decaf Frappuccino. You know, to get some calcium ;) It was a total healthy afternoon!
On the way back to the office, frap in hand, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow runner and pregnant lady Kim. Not only is she super awesome having run a half marathon this weekend, she’s totally nice and has awesome style ;) You should check her out. Thanks for saying hi and sorry I am the most awkward person ever!
Do you ever eat foods out of nostalgia?
