Happy Friday! Fridays before long weekends make the day even sweeter.
Usually on the Friday before a long weekend, our office will let everyone leave early around 3 p.m., but for the past few early Fridays, I’ve been super busy and stayed until at least 5 anyway. Since I’m busy, I don’t mind and I’m not focused on the time anyway, but today, I managed to leave around 4. I took full advantage of my hour early release and headed to the gym.
Why does just about every office building have a Nature’s Table? I’ve worked in three different office buildings in the greater Orlando area since college, and two of them have had a Nature’s Table, including my current building. Also, there’s another office building Nature’s table about a block from mine.
I see Nature’s Table as having pretty mediocre food and something to be avoided. Plus I bring my lunch 95 percent of the time. If I’m going out to eat, I’m going to make it count and grab something delicious.
However, today I was in a pinch and needed something quick that I could eat back at my desk. I ordered an avocado and cucumber sandwich and was pleasantly surprised.
It was actually pretty delicious. The sweetness of the wheat bread balanced out all the veggies inside. I love avocado, and this had plenty of big chunks inside in addition to cucumbers for crunch, sprouts, tomatoes and lettuce. Next time I may ask them to throw some onions on there.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed my lunch.
It’s time to start the weekend! I can’t wait to spend time with Kevin this weekend since we’ve both been so busy lately. And Parko, of course. He demands attention.
Do you work near a Nature’s Table? What’s your go-to meal there?
Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by a dish?
Any plans for the long weekend?
