|Grilled Pita with Feta, Fruit Skewers, Shrimp, and Trader Joe's dried Green Beans|
This was a quick lunch, despite appearances. I used up the leftover shrimp (which, apparently, looks horrible in photos but not in real life) by sprinkling it with salt and lemon juice. Then I threw some wheat pita filled with thin slices of low fat feta cheese on my trust old George Foreman grill while I fixed breakfast. Then I tossed in some dried green beans and threw some cherries and grapes on skewers. I put them on skewers mostly so that they wouldn't roll around all over the pita, but they were also very good for raising in the air and gesticulating while I made some witty and profound point about shoes or something during lunch.
Food as accessories, people. Never forget it.
I wrapped the pitas in a little bit of parchment to keep the bread nice and crispy. And here's a product I absolutely love for this: PaperChef parchment bags.

The other thing that I love to buy in this lunch was Trader Joe's Green Beans. They're dried, and salted, and delicious. There's also a little bit of natural sweetness to them, which complements the fruit and nicely contrasts with the salty bite of the grilled feta. They also keep for a loooong time in the pantry. :)
