Working from home gives you the opportunity to throw together lunch using whatever you happen to have in the kitchen. Sometimes that can turn out weird . . . or it can take longer than you expected to cook lunch, so you end up eating at the computer . . . but with some versatile leftovers ready to heat and eat, sometimes it can turn out really well!
Today, I had
- some Crispy Garlic Kale left over from the side dish to an otherwise unambitious meal of fish sticks and frozen hash browns,
- some Italian-flavor roasted tomatoes left over from a multi-flavor tomato roasting binge,
- and some whole-wheat rotini left over from a meal with salmon and green beans.
These photos were taken in my ordinary kitchen lighting, on my 65-year-old Formica countertop, with naturally occurring background clutter. I will think of this as “keeping it real” rather than “being lazy.”
I sprinkled nutritional yeast flakes on the pasta, for extra protein, B vitamins, and umami.
I heated it all in the microwave for 90 seconds.
Lunch! Chewy, oily, yummy, just enough carbs for me, and plenty of nutritious, locally-grown vegetables! It went from, “What could I eat?” to ready in less than 5 minutes.
Now quit reading things on the Internet and go get yourself something to eat!
