I need to stop buying my lunch all the time.
Any good ideas for food I can make at home?
Make up a pot of Pimenta cheese at home, then buy fresh bread rolls locally and make up your sandwiches when you need.
I have been grilling most nights and bringing in leftovers and eating them in the park.
polish sausage with horseradish and sport peppers on bakery sausage rolls today.
As Dobs says, just make too much the night before and have for lunch the next day.
Couscous with chickpeas & corn, topped with feta.
Cook dinner, and then you'll have leftovers that will make everyone jealous.
Lucky enough to have a pretty fresh cafeteria here. Just got a made-to-order deli sandwich, soup, salad, pickle all for 4 us dollars...
Nearly every day from the 7th grade to my senior year i had the same thing: Pizza Bread Sandwich.
Here's the quickest way (using the oven is also an option)
1. Toast 2 pieces of bread
2. Slather with spaghetti sauce and top each slice with a piece of American cheese
3. Pop into a microwave on High for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes
4. put in freezer on a cooling rack for 2 or 3 min
5. Take out of freezer, put slices together and put into a sandwich bag
You can warm it up if you wish but i (being in school and all) ate it as is, room temp...for 6 yrs
fuck i'm hungry
haven't had one of those in long time actually
I try (try) to cook a bit on Sunday night and then have stuff for work during the week.. when we have clients its a never-ending stream of food, so I have to use what little will power I have to eat healthy...
i always fail at bringing a bagged lunch
i would save a lot of money if i did though
Pasta with simple meants such as meatballs or grilled chicken do well in the microwave.
Sauces dry out so add water before you heat it up. The flavor is all still there the moisture just either evaporates or gets soaked up by the pasta.
Also, wraps. Like turkey, spinach, tomato, and cheese wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla do pretty well if you don't have a microwave.
I find the most efficient/tasty way to save money is make a little extra dinner and take it to work the next day.
You're already paying for the ingredients, using a little more usually doesn't cost anything.
