lunchbox life: a tale in leftovers (also known as slaw dogs and fresh fruit)


I’m sitting in our den, scoping out our newly cleaned house, and thinking–wow–we have some lovely friends here in Macon.  We just gave a fun, laid-back BBQ baby shower for our friends Tim and Leila Regan-Porter, and I am both totally tired from a big day and completely happy with our little life here in middle Georgia.  We are so lucky to have so many young and talented people here!  Here are the lovely parents-to-be with full hearts and plates:


We are so happy to welcome Rosemary June Regan-Porter this summer!

Now, what do you do when you throw a barbecue baby shower?  You make way too much food, of course.  Who wants to attend a barbecue with a slim selection?  We had ribs, wings, pulled pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the fixins, and even after sending people home with to-go plates, we still had way too much to stock in our fridge.

Here’s how I get to my lunch this week.

I’m a HUGE fan of hot dogs.  No, they’re not good for you.  I seldom eat them (mostly because if I did on a regular basis, I’d be as big as a house).  However, by 10 PM on a school night, I’m not going to run to the grocery to create a new lunch idea with a ton of leftovers in the refrigerator.

So, there you have it.  Leftover hot dogs, a smidge of Fresh Air BBQ‘s cole slaw, and some fresh fruit.  Not super nutritious, but I’ll be grinning every lunch break this week with the happy memories of a happy expectant couple and so many great friends here in Macon.  Cheers, and happy beginning of May to everyone!
