odds and ends

The food at my training sucked.

Ok, fine. That may not be entirely true – I wouldn’t know about two of the days.

I don’t know if you can see the problem here, so let me lay it out for you.

There are green peppers in every one of those options. The middle one is tofu! Which was nice for vegetarians! But still, green peppers.

Those are not jalepenos. They’re bell peppers.

Who the hell puts bell peppers in guacamole? Our cafeteria, apparently.

Is it terrible to say that I briefly considered eating something with the peppers in it to get out of the training via allergic reaction? Briefly, I said! When I’d ruled that out, I ended up with a choice of a tortilla with cheese and either lettuce or sour cream.

Fortunately, I’d packed a lunch. I had some tasty farro and mozzarella balsamic salad while everyone else enjoyed their fajita bar.

And then I made Rick Bayless’s Zucchini, Corn, and Poblano Tacos at home to make myself feel better.

They were awesome.

Day two was lasagne. Have you seen a tray of hotel lasagne? With unidentified meat product in the red version and a puddle of oil seeping out of the white version? Then you know what the lasagne looked like.

I didn’t eat it either. I ate farro and mozzarella balsamic vinegar salad again. I am VERY original.

Yesterday we had sandwiches! I ate those. And the cookie. And two platefuls of the fruit salad.

Yum.

Anyway, overall? Training food is not good food. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Your brother posted a photo of his lunch on the SPEEDBLOGGEN website. He throws spaghetti and sauce into a waterbottle on his bike and he’s good to go. Us? We’ve started going out on Fridays, ya know?…. team building – blah blah blah. Some good, some not so good… Longmont is not a culinary destination.
