Favorite lunch, school stress, and a special delivery!

Today is my splurge day (woohoo!) so I had a very small breakfast of a blueberry Special K bar so I could save my appetite for lunch. No pic, sorry!

My splurge meal was a Boar's Head sub!

Check this baby out! It is loaded with ham, provolone, lettuce, tomato, sweet peppers, onions, and oil and vinegar. I concocted a Sriracha/mayo mix to dip it in. I love my condiments! And...this is only half of the sub so it will actually be two splurge meals. Oops :)

Believe it or not, this is my favorite meal of all time. I know what you're thinking...a sub? Out of all of the wonderful food out there? Ever since I can remember I have had a love affair with deli sandwiches. I could eat one anywhere, anytime. As long as it's Boar's Head! Other deli meat simply doesn't compare. Boar's Head is so fresh and tasty...their ham tastes like Christmas ham...their turkey tastes like Thanksgiving turkey! ...You get the idea! Sadly, Boar's Head is so hard to find in this area! Downstate we have Boar's Head at every deli...and there's probably 8 delis within 10 minutes of my house. Up here I have only found 3 places that carry it and the place that makes the best subs is 45 minutes away! So, we made the 45 minute drive to Greece and 45 minutes back just to have our delicious subs. Totally worth it!

Here's what we ate with our subs.
Bryan bought the Dirty chips (chipotle flavor) to snack on on the way home, and of course I had to give them a try. They were tasty but not as loaded with flavor as I would have liked, and very high in calories! With my sub I ate the sour cream & onion popchips. Again, they weren't as good as my first bag...the salt & pepper flavored...but they were still very tasty. I would have liked a little bit of a stronger flavor, but I was still pleased. I'm stealing an idea from Katie from Faith Food & Fitness and giving the foods I review a rating. I would give this flavor of popchips a 6.5 out of 10. (The salt & pepper would get an 8.5!)

We ate our subs while catching up on all our favorite shows. We watched Scrubs, Law & Order, Modern Family, The Office, and 30Rock. My other regulars are Law & Order SVU, How I Met Your Mother, House, and American Idol. What TV shows do you regularly watch??

Grad school stuff put a damper on my afternoon. I found out more about some of the requirements for my classes and it is going to be SO difficult getting it all done while working full time. One of my classes requires me to work with a student outside of class time and I'm stressed about not only finding time to fit that in, but also about actually finding a student! Some of the things my classes require are so impractical! Very frustrating!!!!

However, my mood was lifted when I received this...
My Vitalicious sample package! It was LOADED with muffin tops...flavors like Banana Nut, AppleBran, Deep Chocolate, Fudgy Peanut Butter Cup, Golden Corn, and many more.,.and also some VitaBrownies.

Here's some info one of their representatives, Katie, sent me:

  1. My turkey sandwich contained Boar's Head deli meat...woohoo. Now I know why it was so good! :)

    Glad you're getting to try VitaMuffins. They're great plain, topped with PB, with berries, as breakfast, as a snack...I love 'em!

  2. Bck in my meat eating (and fat ass) days I used to have giant boards head turkey and cheese sandwiches with lettuce, tomatoe and mayo on a white braided roll at least once a week. They were massive but I ate the whole damn thing. SO. GOOD!

    My shows are HIMYM, Modern Family, Cougar town and the entire Thursday night line up on NBC. I also love various reality shows (jersey shore, WHAT?!).

  3. Gotta love the Boar's head sandwichs!!!! My mouth is watering from the pictures!!! if ya gotta splurge, that's the way to do it !!!
