making lunch

I just made myself a lunch of warm lentil salad, which includes carrot, celery, garlic, oregano, and a significant amount of red wine vinegar, along with a half sandwich of leftover homemade tuna salad (which was a new recipe, and quite, quite good) on toasted whole wheat honey bread. It was perfect.

Why is it that making yourself lunch is almost better than someone else making lunch for you? Maybe you're thinking: "Well, I don't know if I agree..." First of all, thank you for disagreeing with me so politely! Second of all, I think it's because I can make it just the way I want it, aesthetically and ingredient-wise. And thirdly, and most importantly, I think it's because I am taking time out of my day to do something nice for myself. It's like it's worth it for me to spend a reasonable amount of time doing something just for me--like I am worth it. And it does make me feel special, and well-fed, and totally satisfied.
