9/02 v is for veggie

09/02 v is for veggie

lunch today is brought to you by the letter V, for veggie. it’s not an entirely vegetarian lunch, however, but it’s pretty close. more cucumbers, peppers, and carrots with dressing instead of chips. organic multi-grain bread with romaine lettuce, pepper jack cheese, spicy mayo, and boars’ head everroast chicken breast as a sandwich. i’ll probably have some chocolate soy milk later.

we finally have internet at the townhouse now, which is nice. hubby, despite being sick with something resembling a cold, has basically finished the office/nursery/spare ‘oom. there’s three bookshelves taking up space that one of our friends needs to come pick up, but, after that, it’s basically ready for a crib and some decorating. i’m not sure if we’ll go for a changing table or not. we probably don’t have room for the baby to have its own dresser, either. the move has given us a chance to empty a few of our dresser drawers, though, so there’s a bit of room there.

i have a feeling we’ll end up figuring out what we need as we go along. we still have limited space, considering the spare room is full of book shelves, dj equipment, and such. it’s multipurpose, but i’m sure that the baby will become more of a focus soon enough.

    Huh. I’ve never heard anything negative about peanuts. I’ll have to do a little research!
    I have heard of the lunch meat controversy. My doctor told me to stay far, far away from any an all lunch meats. I’ve cheated a few times, but I think all will be well. 🙂

    Okay, for some reason this got posted on the wrong entry, lol. It’s supposed to go with the peanut butter one! Sorry. :S

      lol. boars’ head lunch meat uses no preservatives (i.e. no nitrates, which is apparently a bad thing for us expecting ladies and our babies, let alone everyone else) and offers many low sodium varieties; that’s the only lunch meat i’ve eaten while pregnant. i did some reading on the internet before i decided it was safe to buy that particular brand. i think there’s another all-natural brand out there, but i doubt we could find it even if we wanted to in lynchburg. the kroger’s in boonesboro carries boars’ head, but i’m not sure what other stores here do.

      also, i guess it’s listeria or lysteria (however it’s spelled) that’s a worry with cold-cuts and hot dogs. i’ve read it’s recommended to re-heat your lunch meat to steaming (160°F) in order to kill off potential bacteria. i suppose making hot sandwiches is an option …

      i used to work for a deli in a grocery store, so i don’t know if i could ever buy anything but boars’ head anymore. i’m even picky enough to make the deli people clean their slicers before cutting my meat. it’s gross if they leave it all there, and totally risky for health concerns. i probably annoy them, but i’d rather them be mad and clean than happy and dirty. 🙂

      as for peanuts, there seems to be a LOT (and i mean a lot) of information out there.
