This office selection is a bit more filling. At least there is a sandwich. You will notice that Suanne generally packs my snacks and lunches in threes. I think the constant is always a snack and something fruity.
For lunch today it is another Krispy Fruit snack, a Dole Fruit Parfaits and something I look forward to, a English Muffin Sandwich.
We bought the English Muffin Sandwiches from Costco. We had been buying a lot of these kind of microwaveable lunches from Costco in Bellingham. The selection in the Costco in the US is more wider than what we find in the Costco in Vancouver.
The English Muffin Sandwiches cames in a box of ten and in two flavours:
- Bacon, Egg and Cheese
- Sausage, Egg and Cheese
Each of them had 390 calories. So, it was not too bad, I guess. It is equivalent to McDonald’s McMuffin breakfast sandwiches.
The microwave instructions is quite complicated. There are quite a number of steps. Here are the steps:
- Remove sandwich from wrapper.
- Separate the meat and egg from the rest of the sandwich and heat:
- For Sausage & Egg: 80 seconds.
- For Bacon & Egg: 50 seconds.
- Place the meat and egg back in the sandwich between the cheese slices and English muffins.
- Microwave for another 35 seconds.
- Turn sandwich over and microwave for another 35 seconds.
Despite the multi-step instructions, the result was pretty good and taste almost like Mickey D’s Mc Muffins. It is not at all dry and was pretty moist. I like it.
For dessert, it was the Dole Fruit Parfaits. It has real fruit on top of a smooth layer of deliciously light creme. The cream layer taste like vanilla yogurt.
I love the Krispy Fruit tubes from Krispy Kernels. They have a good variety of nuts and fruits. Again, we bought these in Costco. I munch on them all morning long and does a good job of staving away the hunger pangs until lunch time.
