Today I owe two lunchboxes. Friday was chaotic and the weekend was hectic and a bit depressing. Hectic because Tom's brother is finally moving out of the parents nest and into an apartment of his own and needs to decorate his place. So we spent a greater part of Saturday at Ikea and a part of Sunday setting the stuff we bought up. Depressed because it was Diwali weekend for all Indians and I kind of felt so out of touch with it all. Being in Germany I am probably one of the very rare Indians living in Weimar and such celebrations are never really celebrated. I was on my own and my thoughts were of how out of touch I was getting with all things Indian. I have not been back to India in something like 15 years and ever since leaving Qatar (where we still had a bit of the Indian lifestyle) I miss it even more. It's funny as I get older I realize more and more ho out of touch I am with my roots. The occasional Hindi film does not always cut it anymore.
I also have my thoughts if I will be able to offer Soeren anything about his Indian roots.
So, with all these things happening Friday's lunchbox kind of went under. Above is the picture. A lovely roll made with cheese, sunflower seeds and bacon bits simply spread with herb flavored cream cheese. A few cucumbers on the side. A raisin bun spread with butter and honey and a double portion of juicy Melon.
Being a Monday, today's was only half filled due to the new times in English classes.
So, it was Apples from Grandmum's trees and the last of great grandmum's plum cake. Phew!
Adult Variation: The whole lot in one lunch box would work well, wouldn't it? Hope you enjoy your week. I have a ton of work, how about you?
