We are beginning to meet people in our neighborhood and in our church. One of our new friends invited us to go to a rally for a local political candidate. The flyer said there would be food. All of the political rallies I've been to have had a buffet. I worked in the yard until late, so I didn't fix dinner. I thought we'd just all munch at the buffet.
As we made our way to the room, my Darling Daughter heard that they were serving box suppers. Oh no! That almost certainly meant a sandwich, chips, and a cookie. "Ten to one they are ham and cheese sandwiches," said DD.
Sure enough as we approached the table we say big deli rolls filled with ham and cheese. This made my husband happy. He loves ham and cheese, but I stopped buying ham even before I knew it was avoid for both As and Os - too much salt and too many chemicals.
Then I heard someone say something about wraps. I made my way down the table and found two kinds of wrap sandwiches. One was made of thin wheat bread. The other was made of spinach. It wasn't made of 100% spinach. There was obviously some wheat to give it shape. But it was a lot less wheat than any of the other choices. The spinach wraps were stuffed with turkey breast.
Surprisingly there were no chips, and my husband was delighted to get both my cookie and DD's. The political speeches were good, and the candidate himself seems to be an honest man with a servant's heart. In a year when most of the politicians don't share my core beliefs, it is a relief to find someone I might actually like voting for.
