Lunchy-munchy, hmmm?


You've got 30 minutes to cook and eat something for lunch. What do you make?

Unsurprisingly to those who know me, I could actually eat the same thing every day (I almost do as it is - I tend to switch between two quick things throughout the week).

I actually can do the same thing; I'll make a giant vat of soup or something, eat it for lunches until it's gone and be perfectly happy about it.

It makes my hubby crazy.

Drives mine bonkers, too, but then all he eats is meat and cheese - NO CARBS. Crazy talk!

I hope on my bike and make.... tracks. (to a variety of vendors in the area, purchase a meal, and take it back to my desk.)

Oh if only we all got paid what you did... :P (Buying lunch every day is not an option, alas.)

Yes, we ALL can get paid as much as I do - it just takes time.

Think of it as motivation to strive for better pay through hard work and commitment.

I had to excel for 14 years in the same field (Litigation Support Technology) after 15 years in my previous field (Computer Hardware Support) before I started making 6 figures, and that level of income has only been for the last 2 years.

Capitalism works. ;)

Well, sure, if money's your goal. I'm happy working in higher ed for a lot of other reasons, so I'm happy making my own lunch. :P

Besides, I'm married to a doctor, so I'm waiting for the day he finally cuts the crap, starts cutting up patients, and I can stop working altogether. I mean, why else did I marry him? :D

Money is not the goal. It is merely a route to the goal.

The goal is happiness. Find it however you wish to, but that doesn't mean that other routes to that goal are wrong.

Recently, I've been making langostino-pesto quesadillas for lunch, in the toaster oven in the breakroom. Previously, I've done shrimp with salsa, shrimp with pesto, and pork al pastor with salsa, using whatever shredded cheese blend was in stock and sounded good. Prep and cooking usually takes me close to 20 minutes, but doing it in the microwave would be quicker (but result in a non-crunchy quesadilla). You do need fridge/freeser access, though. When I was out of tortillas, I mixed the meat, cheese, and pesto into cooked brown rice instead. With my entree, I generally have an apple and some kind of salty-crunchy (chips, pretzels, etc.). Then something sweet to end it; details vary. All components come from Trader Joe's. In the past, I've done PBJ, or either commercial or homemade bread.

Exactly! Plus way cheaper than eating out, especially in this neighborhood, and both cheaper and tastier than TV dinners.

I live close to work, so I head home every day, and have just enough time to cook and eat something, so new ideas are always welcome.

Plus, there's really no place down here to get food unless you eat in the cafeteria (an expensive prospect, plus it gets boring) or drive a bit, which takes you to where I live anyway, so I might as well go home (and see my honey and play with the cats and watch The Daily Show). :D

Alas, too far to drive to Chik-Fil-A every day. :(
