Something I find really tricky at work is lunch.
Buying lunch comes to anywhere between $5 and $10 a day, plus I might buy a few other things while I'm at the shops - over a two week pay period it ends up being really expensive.
Every week I have the best intentions to take my own lunch.
But, honestly, it never works out - I don't think to get anything at the supermarket, or I forget at night and in the morning I just can't be bothered.
It's easier if we have leftovers from dinner, but otherwise I find myself at such a loss for what to take - sandwiches are so boring!
So, I thought I might do some lunch sharing - in the interest of trying to keep my lunchtime honest, to get me planning a bit better, and in the hope that you'll share some lunchy inspiration with me too =)
Last night we had tacos, so today there was leftover taco meat - delish with a sprinkle of grated tasty cheese.
To 'beef' it up a bit (teehee - get it?) the Boy made up some plain couscous - we use couscous as our lunch 'grain' fairly often since it is so quick to make - which looked really boring, so I had to add a cherry tomato garnish.
The top lefthand corner is filled with salad leaves, and some avocado. I popped a slice of lemon on top in the hope it would keep my avocado from browning - I guess it kinda helped...
The only problem with today's lunch was that there was wayyyyy too much in there!
That's Monday down... what to do tomorrow??
Can anyone help me out with some fool proof lunch box packing tips?
