The Lunch Bunch

Mmmmmm... PITA!  I've been trying to mix it up in the lunch category lately, (also keep track of good lunches when I am stumped on what to pack), and today had an awesome, stuffed pita sandwich.  Easy to prepare, a little harder to eat, since my pita kept falling apart.  But still, delicious.

My friend Jenn came to visit from sunny Youngstown, OH, and brought me some of her favorite pita.  I cut this in half and stuffed with:
-tuna (I know, not really a local food, but I already had in my cabinet and am not about to throw perfectly good tuna away)
-a boatload of spinach
-matchstick carrots
-baby bellas
-green onion
-a slice of swiss cheese
Topped it off with salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar.  Delicious.

Overall, a very filling, satisfying lunch.  7.5 on the points plus scale... that leaves me plenty of points to experiment with a pita pizza tonight.  Another goal I've been working on in the kitchen- using up food before it goes bad, in exciting new ways!

  1. Yay! I'm glad you have been enjoying the pita and your lunch sounds awesome. Let me know what kind of pizza you make. I love my TJ's products (should have bought more peanut flour), although I'm not sold on the seaweed snacks quite yet.
