Home sweet lunch

8 WEEKS, 3 DAYS PREGNANT
Item #8903 that I am looking forward to about maternity leave: eating lunch at home!
It seems like it’s been decades — and really, it has, because on weekends I only eat brunch. I only got to eat lunch at home for one year of school — Grade 2 — and I still
have super-fond memories of eating while watching The Price is Right
and Full House.
Lately I have been craving the lunches that I can’t make at work, like:
Oh, and add “a tall glass of chocolate milk” to all of the above. And Oreos for dessert.
I have been craving Oreos this week, and haven’t managed to get any yet.
I suppose I could technically make any — well, most — of those items at work, but it wouldn’t be the same. Scarfing lunch at your desk while you work is not the same as eating lunch on your couch while watching TV.
… I suppose being on maternity leave means scarfing your lunch while trying to feed/change/amuse a baby.
Maybe I could have The Price is Right on in the background, while my Alphaghetti gets cold?
