What do you have for lunch?
 
These days i go eat outside, i went to in and out and mostly these days i eat from panda express, so i am wondering what do you eat at lunch time

Rocklobster 07-13-2012 10:13 AM

Today is going to be a roast beef and Gorganzola panini, with garlic aioli.

Bolledeig 07-13-2012 10:25 AM

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 :smile:

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.

Dawgluver 07-13-2012 10:31 PM

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.

PrincessFiona60 07-13-2012 10:34 PM

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

Ratchett 07-14-2012 01:41 AM

I often do more vegetables than we need for our tea and mash them up in a frying pan ( we call it bubble and squeak, mainly if it has caggage and potato, but any sort of vegetable goes well in it) Or do it in a jaffle iron. Nice with a poached egg on toast for lunch.

Kylie1969 07-14-2012 10:22 PM

I am just eating a tuna and cheese toasted sandwich, lovely on this cold day :smile:

Steve had some leftover chicken stir fry :smile:

Ratchett 07-16-2012 02:08 AM

Way too much!

Met friends for lunch. Smorgasbord -- All you can eat for $12 (Seniors)

Excellent but way, way, way too much..........Burp!!

Kylie1969 07-16-2012 02:41 AM

Today I had some quiche lorraine and salad

Only 10.15am here so not sure what lunch will be, but yesterday I just had some yogurt and puffed wheat. I have an addiction to puffed wheat at the moment. I don't know why as it really is pretty bland. But I like to get a huge bowl of it and eat it like popcorn whilst watching a movie ;) We all have our weird habits, right? :)

Kylie1969 07-16-2012 06:34 AM

I like puffed wheat, but I have to have something on it...we have a cereal over here that I can just eat of the box called Honey Weets and they are basically puffed wheat coated in honey :yum:

My husband who was born in the UK used to love Sugar Puffs, he said they are puffed wheat coated in sugar and they are a bit crispier than Honey Weets

I'm eating it plain whilst watching a movie as I type haha!

Yes we have Sugar Puffs here and you're correct, they're the same just coated in sugar and definitely crispier. They're too sweet for my tastes though.

I try not to eat lunch, but sometimes that doesn't work out.
I usually have a beer, coffee with my new friend sugary creamer or I steal something from the fridge. Yesterday I had salad dressing and hard caramels.

Cerise 07-16-2012 12:34 PM

Usually, soup, salad or a sandwich (with fresh fruit, chips, or yogurt).
I buy assorted cheeses (Muenster, Swiss, etc.) & meats (roast beef, turkey breast) from the Deli dept, & keep ripe juicy tomatoes, avocadoes & salad fixin's on hand. I change out the bread/rolls, i.e. onion rolls, baguettes, bagels - from the Bakery. Sometimes it's cream cheese, red onion & sliced tomato on a bagel. I try to mix it up & keep it interesting.

Switch the beer for cider (the alcoholic variety) and that's my perfect lunch right there :)

Ah you have good taste! :)
Over here in the UK there's only one kind of Strongbow, so I'm guessing it's the original. I love cider, definitely my favourite drink :wink:

Kylie1969 07-17-2012 04:03 AM

Here you can get the 3 different types and also a Pear and Apple one :smile:

I like the original, but also the sweet one...very tasty :wink:

Kylie1969 07-19-2012 05:03 PM

Yesterday I made a hot dog for lunch :yum:

Kylie1969 07-20-2012 11:20 PM

Cheryl J 07-20-2012 11:28 PM

I usually just kind of graze, but today I had a chili dog. Chief Longwind and Kylie made me do it. :angel: :smile:

Kylie1969 07-20-2012 11:29 PM

LOL Cheryl :lol:

It wasn't me :rofl:

Cheryl J 07-20-2012 11:33 PM

:lol:

Kylie1969 07-20-2012 11:38 PM

Chilli dog does sound really nice though Cheryl, is that just a normal hot dog with chilli sauce?

Cheryl J 07-20-2012 11:43 PM

A hot dog on half a French roll, topped with chili, chopped onions, and cheddar cheese. :yum: :smile:

Kylie1969 07-20-2012 11:45 PM

Oh yes, that sounds perfect...

With the onions, do you fry them?

Cheryl J 07-20-2012 11:54 PM

No, I just chopped them up raw into a small dice and sprinkled them on top. I used a mild white onion, though. :smile:

Kylie1969 07-21-2012 12:11 AM

They say raw onion is extremely good for you :smile:

I do like raw onion in saladas and such but I love fried onion on hot dogs :yum:

Kylie1969 07-22-2012 03:08 AM
