Wow, that sound delicious, Rocklobster!

Panda Express doesn't sound very good tho. I've only tasted stuff from there once, and it was NOT good. Perhaps not even edible.

Plan ahead--make an extra chicken breast for supper, chop it up and add it to a tossed salad, bring the dressing in a small container (I used to use spice jars) on the side. Or, you can make a chicken sandwich and take that for lunch.

Start brown bagging it--go outside to eat, but pack your own lunch. I used to prepare lunch-sized portions of casseroles, etc., pop them in the freezer, take them out in the morning and they'd be ready to pop in the microwave at lunchtime. I also used to bring hardboiled eggs, smoked oysters, celery and carrot sticks, yogurt. I'd go outside to eat--use the money you are not spending for lunch to treat yourself to something--a cookbook/kitchen tool you've had your eye on, a movie you've wanted to see, etc.

Today for lunch we are having a wrap with some roast beef, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and garlic sauce wrapped in Lebanese bread
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Often it's leftovers from last night's dinner. Leftover meat's get made into a sandwich or quesadilla, etc. Otherwise, it's a couple of hot dogs, or tuna salad, or take-out Chinese.

I try to go home for lunch when I'm working, and usually have leftovers. DH will occasionally bring home some fast food when he's sick of leftovers.

On purpose leftovers, made into lunches. Most I re-work into something different so I don't get tired of them.
