I now know why lunch bloggers do it

If you have to report on what you've made for lunch, you're more likely to be creative and healthy. Here is a very lame, very carb-filled lunch for tomorrow. My only defense is we haven't gone shopping in a while, and I'm feeling kinda down tonight. I find carbs very comforting. :)

Here are the fixins for a maple almond butter and banana sandwich on Hawaiian bread (the blue thing is a spoon on one end, knife on the other), strawberries (we bought two pounds!), pretzel thins, and chocolate.

Note: the bread is actually yellow, due to the pineapple and whatnot it contains. There are two huge slices in there, cut in half. The Goodbyn is BIG.


  1. What the heck is Hawaiian bread?

  2. It's a sweet bread, wiki says it originated in Portugal as a holiday bread and came to Hawaii with immigrants. Apparently, the Hawaiian version is sweetened with pineapple. It's a perfect platform for peanut butter and banana sandwiches. :)

  3. It's really popular in the Northeast. My dad's family is Portuguese and they ate it all time. I grew up with it being a breakfast thing. We toasted it and then smothered it in butter :) Oh and we just called it "Sweet bread".

    I was so glad when stores started carrying Hawaiian bread.
