Hi, I’m Katie. Armed with my
trusty spray butter (I gave spray butter up in August 2014) salt shaker, I’ve been eating my way through frozen meals and easy-to-prepare desktop delicacies since my childhood days, when I’d talk Mom into buying me Kid Cuisines, BBQ Hot Pockets and cans of Dinty Moore Beef stew at the grocery store. I started blogging about the glory of frozen “Meals for One”, weight loss and Chicago food in 2010.
Thought to be the OG of the sad desk lunch, I’d rather take a lunch than buy one, even if it means scrounging around in my personal office fridge for tuna pouches and way-past-their-prime packets of Taco Bell hot sauce. Known to have bought a toaster for my personal office, friend to the English Muffin. In a co-dependent relationship with my FitBit, I’ve obsessively hit 10K steps/day since February 4, 2014 (update, that fell off the wagon when I met Main Squeeze). I enjoy a super slow run here and there. Hailing originally from the Quad City Area (emphasis on area), I’ve run the Bix 7 race 6 times and will keep the tradition alive for 7 in 2017.
Since meeting Dawid (aka Main Squeeze) in 2015, he’s been rocking some photos here on Dining at my Desk, since his background as a photographer has clearly been to everyone’s benefits! He’s also the best dinner chef, and after a long day at the office, he’s got my back, whipping up the best suppers, and just being the best.
