Weekly Lunches: #33

I have been dangerously lax about posting lunches this year and I’m not sure why. I’ve even had trouble keeping up with posting them on Instagram but I guess you can’t do all the things all the time? Either way there’s only a few more weeks left in the year (more like a dozen and a half but it feels like only a few) so let’s see if we can’t get back on track until 2020.

Loaded salad, yogurt with jam, orange
Pastitsio, salad, spicy pickle, plums
Lentil falafel, yogurt dip, couscous, grapes
carrot and cucumber sushi, plums and oranges
Dum Aloo, rice, cucumber and carrots with hummus, orange

Refried beans and rice, nectarine
Creme croquettes, salad, nectarine, nougat
Roasted chicken, horseradish mashed potatoes, green beans, grapes
Chicken salad, yogurt with jam, crackers, grapes

Weekly Lunches: #31

I didn’t post this on Instagram so they’re unedited but they’re still pretty okay pictures and I’d rather have a record of them than not I suppose. I’ll do better next week, probably.

Coconut lentils, carrots and hummus, kiwi
Rice soup, tabbuleh, peach
Torta pasquilla, salad, strawberries and grapes
onion and cheese scones, salad, kiwi, peach scone
bean enchiladas, salad, yogurt with fruit, crunchie bar

Weekly Lunches: #30

I wish I were more consistent with this but this week I was living between two hours and we spent four days of the last week out until midnight or later with friends so just three lunches, yikes!

Grilled cheese with tomato, loaded salad, yogurt with peaches
Piroshiki (chicken, cabbage, carrot), loaded salad, peach
Quiche (mushroom and spinach), carrots and hummus, yogurt with peach

Weekly Lunches: #29

I think I did really good with the main dishes this week but I always just kind of fall back on fruit and vegetables for side dishes. Nothing wrong with that I suppose but I worry that it’s boring.

Chicken curry, rice, cherries
Pesto tart with tomatoes and goat cheese, sopa di fideo, apricots, grapes
White pesto pasta, salad, kiwi
Ratatouille risotto, hummus and carrots, grapes, cherries
Bean burger, salad, carrots and hummus, kiwi

Keeping up lunches this year has been much harder even though I obviously keep making them. At least some of the break this time can be attributed to the fact I was out of the country for three weeks.

Turkey and cheese sandwhich, vegetables and hummus, orange
Breakfast stromboli, salad, yogurt with jam, apple
Mushroom and rice soup, black bread, salad, orange
Salmon wrap, yogurt with jam, apple
Coconut lentils, salad, grapes

Weekly Lunches: #27

I don’t know how next week is going to look like or what is going to happen but at least for this week things are pretty easy going. I am always worried that I make boring side dishes but at least I try to keep the main course interesting (plus I like salad, who doesn’t like salad?)

Piroshki, salad, apple
Coconut lentils, carrots and hummus, kiwi
Mushroom Arancini with marinara, roasted vegetables, yogurt with kiwi
Kreplach, salad, apple
Pasta with roasted vegetables, salad, kiwi

I have friends coming to visit today which is pretty exciting but it also means that my husband took off work for the next week so I won’t be making any lunches for a week which is fine, everyone deserves a break now and then.

Mushroom Bourguignon, egg noodles, salad, apple
Vegetable Lasagna, salad, tabbouleh, banana
Aloo Gobi Matar, yogurt with kiwi, blood orange
No fry sweet and sour chicken, rice, salad, kiwi
Nachos, Salad, apple

I kind of made do this week because I’d forgotten a few things from my shopping list since we shopped on Sunday instead of Saturday but it turned out alright in the end. I’m trying to be consistent in quality but stubbornness and ice got in my way.

Fleischschnacka, salad, yogurt, grapes
Ratatouille risotto, carrots and hummus, apple
Spinach and goat cheese quiche, cherry tomatoes, orange
Homemade Spaghettios, quick naan, grapes
Tabbouleh, carrots and hummus, yogurt with raisins, almonds, and honey

Weekly Lunches: #24

I think I did a great job this week for the most part. Lots of fun and delicious new recipes which means next week will be more standard fare but you can’t be 110% all the time.

Stir fry noodles, salad, apple
Mushroom Bourguignon over homemade egg noodles, salad, kiwi
Blini with salmon, horseradish cream, and caviar, split pea soup, apple
Hainanese Chicken Rice, Acar Kuning Timun, grapes
