July Stats – Part II: Food

After covering what I drank last month, you’re probably overly excited to see what I ate last month. I know. I would be too. It’s thrilling to see what I ate. I will say this. After months of promising myself to buy groceries, I finally did. There was a reason. I am on vacation. Or I was this week. I didn’t want to leave the house. So I had to stock up on food. It’s nice having food. It’s nice knowing that I don’t have to go to McDonald’s or Burger King just to stop the cravings. Then again, the human body can last 4 to 6 weeks without eating. After that, you might look at the person next to you and wonder, “Do people taste like chicken or pork?”

Grab a snack. I’ll wait.

You got one? Good. Let’s start.

Breakfast:

  • I still enjoy a nice bagel in the morning. I don’t bother heating it up or adding cream cheese bagel sauce to it. I just eat it plain. I like bagel sauce. I prefer spreading butter and jam on it. I just eat it plain. If I am at home, then yes. I will add the butter, jam, or bagel sauce to it. Last month I had 10 bagels.
    • 9 of those bagels were blueberry. By far, my favorite bagel. I just love blueberries.
    • 1 bagel was an cinnamon raisin bagel. It would have been a blueberry but the morning bakers didn’t have any ready. It was still good. I like cinnamon. Honestly, the smell of cinnamon is joy to me.
  • Since I switched to bagels, I don’t eat many donuts at work anymore. I still love donuts. I miss Dunkin’ Donuts. There is a store I can go to but traveling 30 minutes for a donut is lame. They have the best strawberry donuts. I had a total of 7 donuts. One more than last month. Of those seven donuts,
    • 1 was from work. It was a maple long john.
    • 6 were from the local gas station, Quick-Trip. They were,
      • 3 maple long johns.
      • 3 chocolate long johns.
  • I made 4 trips to Bob Evans in the month of July. It’s tradition! I stick to the same meal. My mother does too. I stick with the Farmer’s Choice. The meal includes, eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes. Together, I had…
    • 8 eggs over easy.
    • 12 pieces of bacon.
    • 8 pancakes with syrup. No butter. I hate butter on my pancakes.
    • 4 orders of white toast.
  • Last month I had 5 yogurts. This month, I only had a total of 1.
    • It was a Blueberry yogurt with granola.

Lunch (work meals):

It seems it is becoming an issue for me trying to find meals at work. You work at a place for 16 years, you are bound to run into the same issue. I bet people at McDonald’s and such have the same issue. I would hate to work at place like that. Having to eat that food day in and day out. At least where I work, I have many choices. It’s just getting harder to decide. I should try and make it a weekly thing. You know, make each day of the week a certain meal. Like every Sunday, I get the Beef Lo Mein (thank you, John! It’s always amazing!). Who knows. It will only leave me with 7 different meals. But I can always bend the rules.

  • 8 of my meals at work were the ever popular, Medium Spicy Beef Lo Mein (no vegetables, no oyster sauce)
    • I enjoyed a nice piece of New York Style Cheesecake with this 3 times.
  • I had 4 different wraps on break. Wraps have become a staple now. If we can, we are wanting to make a special menu with wraps and burgers to offer people for lunch. Make them signature items only found at our store. Of these 4 wraps,
    • 3 were BLT wraps. One of my favorite wraps.
      • 1 side of baked beans.
      • 1 side of macaroni and cheese.
      • 1 side of tortellini pasta.
      • 1 yeast roll.
    • 1 grilled chicken wrap. Not as good as the BLT but still good. Of course it’s good. I made it. No side with this wrap. *sad panda*
  • I had a whopping total of 6 pulled pork sandwiches.
    • 4 were smaller sandwiches.
    • 2 were larger sandwiches with sides.
      • 2 side of baked beans.
      • 2 side of macaroni and cheese.
      • 2 yeast roll.
      • 1 slice of Dorthy’s strawberry cheesecake (I love that woman.)
  • 1 Burnt End Sandwich. I didn’t want this. I don’t like Burnt Ends. But they mixed up handing the sandwiches to us. When I took a bit (without looking), I noticed their error. Eff you, Jake ate the Fat Man. You ruined my lunch.
  • 2 BBQ Brisket Sandwiches. I do love BBQ. Far too much. Damn, that sheet is good!
    • 2 sides of macaroni and cheese.
    • 1 side of baked beans.
    • 1 yeast roll.
    • 1 piece of white cake with frosting.
  • 1/2 of a Grilled Club. I got busy at work and didn’t get the time to enjoy it all.
  • 1 Bacon Cheeseburger (lettuce, tomato, cheese, bacon, ketchup…)
    • 1 order of tator tots on the side.
  • 2 Foot Long Beef Hot Dog.
  • 1 Angus Beef Hamburger

I visited the pizza joint called ‘Pizza Street’. Went there with my sister. When there, I had…

  • 1 visit to Pizza Street.
    • 1 slice of Pineapple Ham Pizza.
    • 1 slice of Alfredo Pizza.
    • 2 slices of Baked Potato Pizza.
    • 2 slices of Pepperoni Pizza.
  • 1 foot long cold cut combo.

  • 1 visit to Philly Time.
    • 1 Deluxe Philly Steak.
    • 1 Philly Time Chocolate Chip Cookie.
    • 1 side of Philly Time Onion Rings.
  • 3 McDonald’s 20 piece chicken nuggets
    • 6 sweet and sour sauces.
    • 6 BBQ sauces.

  • 1 visit to Ming Garden.
    • General Tso Chicken and steamed rice.
  • 2 large Papa John’s Cheese Pizza (12 slices total)
    • 7 hot slices
    • 5 nuked slices
  • 11 Papa John’s Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 Tostino’s Cheese Pizza (BURNT!!)
    • I finally got the oven fixed!
  • 1 Tupperware of Fettuccine Chicken Pasta made by my friend. (thanks, babe!)
  • 2 Slices of Minsky’s Taco Pizza

DISCLAIMER: I am really not too sure what I had for lunch and what I had for dinner. I tried to keep track of it by marking what I had for lunch and what was for dinner. But I slip. I try to judge. Usually, I skip lunch. I am just too lazy to leave the house. By the time I do, It’s about 5 or 6. I like food. I do. Just lazy.

Drinking Snacks:

  • 1 Butterfinger Bar. Was at the bowling alley. I like to make note that I cannot play. I think I scored a 50. Maybe 60. I don’t know. I can’t bowl and my co-worker Adam can’t dance.
  • 1 8 piece mozzarella stick basket at 54 Street.
