taco bar.

At work today, we had a taco bar style potluck.  Fantastic idea.  I vote that we do this every week. Knowing it was going to be a great meal, I intentionally had a small lunch and no morning snack. Cereal, it is!  No complaints.  It’s not secret I am a cereal fiend.

On to the good stuff…tacos!

I crunched up a couple hard shell tacos to make the base layer for a taco salad instead of regular ole tacos.  The summer I worked in California, we had a taco bar for lunch pretty consistently and this was my routine.  My salad had a bunch of good stuff like refried beans, guacamole, sautéed pepepers and onions, lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, and a bit of a homemade salsa.

There were a ton of desserts too.  I sampled several.  They were small, so they really only count as one regular sized dessert, right?! 😉 That’s my kind of logic.  I had a cake ball, brownie, and a make your own paczek.  How impressive is this set up?  Directions and all of how to assemble it!

And what better to follow up a trio of sugary goodness than a second helping of guacamole?  But, let’s be real.  I couldn’t let perfectly good homemade guac go to waste!

I then spent most of the afternoon in a food coma.

In the midst of the food coma, I also had an ongoing I should go for a quick run after work but I really don’t want to but I need to internal debate.  Since Wednesdays are generally a rest day since I don’t have a ton of time before I head out to youth group, it took a little extra kick in the butt.  So I just reminded myself that I have a 5k on Saturday and a half marathon in less than 6 weeks.  Off to the Y I went and had a great run.  I swear, it’s the days I really don’t want to go that turn out to be the best!  I did 3 miles in 30:48 (10:16 pace).

Dinner was a highly nutritious, well balanced meal.  Or, it was Starbucks.  I was still so full from lunch and all I reallywanted was caffeine.  So I did what any reasonable person would do.  I got a soy caramel macchiato.  I said I was going to try to stop counting coffee drinks as my breakfast, I never said anything about lunch or dinner. 😉

Okay, I feel like I just crammed a lot into one post.  It’s late and I still have things to get done before I can sleep.  So, see you tomorrow!

2 things: #1- I would work anywhere for practically nothing if taco bars were involved on a regular basis. I think I will propose this as an idea to my boss- to boost employee morale, right!?

#2- soy caramel macchiato: i think i love you.

the end!! 🙂
