Lunch is my least favourite meal of the day as a result of I discover it very unpredictable. Time and components dictate which lunch I’ll select. I by no means know what sort of lunch I’m going to crave till about 11am. If it’s chilly, it’s most likely soup or a sizzling sandwich. If it’s sizzling, it’s most likely a salad. As you understand, I additionally eat loads of leftovers for lunch! Sometimes I feel it’s simpler to pack a lunch as a result of your lunch is already determined for you!
Here is what I ate for lunch just lately – soup, salad, sandwich – and why they have been delish!
What I Ate: Soup
If you’ve been a long-time KERF reader you understand that I’m very choosy about my canned/boxed soups and salad dressings. This soup from Bar Harbor Foods was despatched to me by the Marine Stewardship Council and I actually favored it! The ingredient listing was easy, and it tasted like a freshly made clam chowder to me. I added some Trader Joe’s Parmesan Crisps on prime – good crouton topping. Only draw back: no veggies on this one so I made positive to have a salad for dinner.
What I Ate: Salad
I’ve to rave about this salad as a result of it comes from one in all Cville’s hidden gems: Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. They have an in depth menu of scrumptious teas (critically, any sort you may want) plus some actually nice salads and platters (search for the Goatherder!) This salad is my favourite – the Bazaar Salad – which is a big plate of combined greens tossed with ginger-miso French dressing, with feta, pear, candied walnuts, raisins, cucumbers, carrots, and tomatoes. And the herby toasted pita on the facet is the right complement. I loved it with a pot of Moroccan Mint tea whereas I labored!
What I Ate: Sandwich
I feel that is the very best sandwich in Charlottesville. Thomas typically will get sandwiches out for lunch and he brings me one every so often. From Ivy Provisions, it’s known as the Gobbfather and is filled with roasted turkey, pepper jack, pickles, spicy mayo, and arugula on sourdough bread. Served heat!! (I feel the combo of pickles, spicy mayo and cheese and heat make it epic.) I might not put this on the healthiest meals listing, but it surely’s rattling good!! Usually I solely eat half (it’s enormous – that’s solely half on my plate) and have one thing inexperienced on the facet. The second half is simply pretty much as good heated again up the subsequent day.
So there you could have it: three very totally different however very scrumptious latest lunches!
