Simple Lunch



I don't take breaks at work. So to pack lunch or dinner, it's usually cheese and an apple.

The type of cheese and apple are very important.




A sharpish cheese. A (no compromise here!) Gala apple.




Take a little bite of cheese. Add a little bite of apple.
Taste the sharpness and creaminess of the cheese alongside the sweet tang of the crisp and juicy apple.




Repeat until gone.

Joining Dayle for Simple Pleasures Thursday!

I miss cheese... can't eat it, swells up my joints. What I wouldn't do for a nice smoothy brie... okay now i am just salviating like a fool!

Hi Carol...thanks for visiting my blog and also for your nice comment about my fireplace. It certainly was an improvement! I like this post...I don't take breaks at my job either. I work through lunch so I can leave 30 minutes early. Many times it's just fruit and cheese/crackers or maybe a cup-a-soup. Nice to meet you ~ Ann

Oh cheese is a simple pleasure for me...now I haven't tried this cheese..and with an apple that is the great. I also love cheese soup with an apple.

Ooh, yum. I LOVE cheese especially with fruit. I usually have mine with grapes. It's the perfect meal. Oh my, Carol, now I'm hungry and it's 10:45 pm and there's no cheese and no grapes. :( Grocery store is first on my to-do list tomorrow. ;) Oh yummy, what a great simple pleasure.

Hugs!

Dayle said...

Carol, that's one of my go-to snacks, except I go for the green apples ... and grapes are a good substitute, as well.

Now I'm hungry. :)

Trish @ Lily-Rose Cottage said...

Well, that's a nice healthy lunch, Carol!
I like Gala too - I prefer a crunchy apple to a floury one any day :-)

Yum, yum! One of my favorite snacks! Now, add a nice carrot muffin and a glass of ice cold milk and you have a complete meal.

Debbie said...

Do you know that I never had apples and cheese until I went home with the now husband for the first time? His mom served it. I was HOOKED.

I happen to like the gala and sharp cheese combination too.

Carol, that sounds like the perfect treat to me! I like sharpish cheese, too.

Hope you are well and that all is happy in your world. Speaking of which Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. Remember to wear green so you won't get pinched. LOL!

I have missed you, and I hope to be blogging regularly again soon. I keep wondering if I am ever going to get caught up, and then I remind myself "One day at a time." Our server in St. A is goofy so I long for the painters to leave so I can go home. We're having work done in both places. It's a trip! ;-)

Sending you big hugs.

XO,

Sheila :-)

When I was a young married, I had an older friend who fed us youngsters sliced apples and cheese. I thought it was quite sophisticated...now it just looks yummy.

Sue said...

I like sharp (white) Tillamook cheddar with my Gala apple! ;-)

Kathy said...

When I find myself too busy to stop to make a lunch - that's the type I go for - just love the combination - or peanut butter and apple -
simply delicious!

and . . .
it is ever so important to make all the bites come out even in the end.

I'm with you on the whole cheese and apple thing! On Sundays we always fellowship all day so we potluck around 1:30. Since we eat this large meal early afternoon we're not as hungry for the evening meal. Most Sundays for dinner I serve everyone a bowl of stove popped popcorn with sea salt, a slice of cheese, and apple wedges.
