what are you ladies having for lunch these days? I work FT so i bring my lunch everyday and seriously its either pb&j or a can of spaghettos. I try to stay away from frozen meals like lean cuisines and lunch meats since were not suppossed to eat them cold. Help me please! Im hungry!! ;-)
I'm lucky that there are a lot of fairly inexpensive lunch options near work and my coworkers go out to eat often. I eat a lot of spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce and a side order of broccoli since that's the closest restaurant. There's also a lot of ethnic restaurants around, which is awesome because most curries etc make great leftovers for dinner too.
When I bring lunch to work, it's usually leftovers. I like making a big batch of lasagna or chili and then eating it throughout the week.
I've been hooked on BLT's lately and they are easy to make in the office. I just cook my bacon in the microwave and add tomato and lettuce. I've also been eating alot of soup lately since it's been cold.
I also cook dinner most nights so when we have leftovers I will bring those. I know how hard it is to find something to bring to work to eat.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
I usually take dinner leftovers like soups or chili, lasagna, spaghetti/meatballs, etc. Sometimes sandwiches or wraps. I also like to take a piece of fruit and depending what I'm eating some pretzels/crackers and string cheese, etc. Whatever is quick and easy to put together the night before since in the mornings I don't care to pack a lunch!
I do a little of everything-DH and I both get a weekly spending cash for gas/food. I try to mostly take from home, and I take a bit of everything-this week I've had brunswick stew, leftover pizza, and leftover quesadillas. A lot of times I will go on Monday and buy some things from the grocery store to keep at work to eat-"easy mac", snacks etc., and I still do hot pockets/frozen meals occasionally as well. And once a week or so I end up going out for lunch, either for fast food or with coworkers to a local mid-price place ie$10-$12 for lunch-American food or a japanese place, usually.
