This week's lunches: July 13-17 2009

Lots of repeats this week, but lots of fresh, colourful and delicious produce. Yay summer!

Monday: Lentil, broccoli and orange salad (recipe here) on romaine, blanched asparagus and broccoli, peas, oranges, cherries and a cherry filled bun (more on that later)

Tuesday: Some sort of bastard pasta primavera with garlic scapes, asparagus and peas, oranges and an oatmeal molasses muffin, peas, broccoli, and cherries, with a fancy lettuce liner for the container (which I ate)

Wednesday: Delicious, steamy, spicy, chock full of stuff vegetable black bean clean-out-the-fridge/freezer soup. Except frozen, so that it won't leak. Cornbread in the red diamond shaped silicone...thing, and the usual fruit&veg.

Thursday: More soup, more everything. A simple salad of romaine, sunflower seeds, black sesame seeds, salt, pepper and lime. I don't have a container that can reliably hold dressing without leaking, but this was delicious.

Friday: The on-the-ball reader will notice that Friday is in fact tomorrow. It's lunch from the future! I usually pack my lunch the night before, because it's one less thing to do in the morning. And if you've been in the position of standing in front of the fridge 10 minutes before you need to leave wondering what the heck you can chuck in a container to bring, you'll understand why I avoid it. The only new thing here is a vegetable curry under brown rice (so that the rice doesn't get soggy)

That's it for this week folks, stay tuned tomorrow for another exciting episode of Food Waste Friday! Woooo!
