Day 69: Ketchup Packets

Today's lunch was another day of mom-cooked goodness. I brought some leftover breaded chicken cutlets to work. I wouldn't call it schnitzel since it was baked and not fried, but otherwise it's the same idea. Good stuff. I like to add some ketchup to my chicken, and for that reason I have some ketchup packets in my desk drawer. I keep packets at work and in my bag for condiment emergencies. For example, 2 weeks ago my sister and I were flying home from Greensboro on a no food flight. That would not have been an issue for the 1 hr 45 min flight, except that we ended up sitting at 3 different airports (surprise stop in Allentown, PA!) and circling over DC for a total of 6 hours. Luckily, we had some plain pasta with us, and a collection of soy sauce, duck sauce and mayo packets. And a plastic cup and 2 popsicle sticks. OK, so in that case the packets didn't really get us anywhere. Anyway, the chicken was really good. If anyone else wants to make fun of my mom's cooking, you can do it in the comments below.


  1. (1) Excellent, Shlomo. Your comment is a clear sign of personal growth.

    (2) Rebecca, how did you get the condiment packets past security?

  2. You're like McGuyver for food.

  3. For anyone who cares, Shlomo and I have made up. He has agreed to try my gefilte fish, and I have agreed to let him back in my house.
