Midday Bites

(noun) A group of foods that are appropriate for a meal in the middle of the day.
(phrase) Used to express the feeling one gets when (a) one can’t believe how fast the morning went and more time is needed, or (b) one’s finally made it to midday and it’s hard to accept that there’s still half a day left to spend. In both instances, at least there’s good food.
