No, what is the point of cross-posting?

I agree, Steve, it's definitely nice to have different cuisines every day. Where I work, there are 5 huge food courts within 10 minutes walk. It's definitely a treat! Sometimes we go out with colleagues to celebrate bdays. Most of the time, I bring food... otherwise i'd go broke

However i have the hardest time making my lunch. And I have to bring the lunch, because I cannot go to store to pick something quick and there are no restaurants anywhere around the place I work where I could go for lunch. For me there is no other option but lunch. Maybe you should move in with us for a week and teach me how to make lunch. What you describe sounds great, but I doubt I can follow the advice. Considering that I am at work from 9 till 7:30, it makes it so much harder because I have to bring not just lunch but dinner also, otherwise i am stuck eating really late when I get home. Some people just have it harder than the others.
I can soooooo relate to you, CharlieD. My husband works a 14hr shift, so I have to pack both lunches and dinners for him. Plus, his office is located in no-man's land.... no restaurants, no malls around.
LUNCHES: What I do to accommodate this is preping everything on Sunday. To get started, you can try to roast some chicken breasts, cook some pasta or rice and have some salads or vegetables in the fridge.
DINNERS: I pack the leftovers from last night for work next day.

Kaneohegirlinaz, that's an awesome advice! My husband was suggesting the same... I thought he was joking! I should get started on this!

GG, it's just about sharing good discussions and helpful tips with DC community. Not everyone is aware of my blog and visits it every day.

Okay. It just comes across a little strange because you haven't been here long enough to get to know us, yet you're giving us cooking and planning advice as if we're the non-cooks who seem to be the targets for your blog. Most of us who post regularly have been cooking for decades.

Your enthusiasm is admirable, but it's a good idea to know your audience

Not to go too far off topic, but this person is doing what's called SEO
Search Engine Optimization
I'm not a fan, the forums that I belong to discourage this practice, and I agree,
Read some threads and get a feel for your new Community before you dive in head first, don't you think? I'm just sayin'
