What Did You Have For Lunch Today?

Recommended Posts

Thanks!! We only get the Orgran self-raising flour here. You don't put any shortening/knob of butter (like me mum used to do) or anything in it?

No, no butter. But I have used Orgran and it was fine- a little more runny perhaps? Actually- whats even nicer is if you do 1 cup S/R and one cup brown rice flour, 2 eggs, two cups of milk...mmmm

I made some gorgeous focaccia yesterday so will be having it in sandwich form with honey ham, Provolone and pistachio mint pesto I made in the fall. As I am trying to clean our our freezers I will also be having a smoothie with blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.

Today I made myself Eggs Benedict on a gluten-free bun. As the dish is not exactly fat free I am scarfing down a ton of fresh blackberries.

I was so please yesterday when I shopped that Progresso has labeled several soups gluten free on the front label. I love to support the companies who support us. :D

Very similar to yesterday - grilled aged provolone cheese sandwich (homemade bread) with a lick of blueberry ginger "jam" I made the other day and a touch of homemade Dijon mustard.

Raw cukes and carrots.

As I knew I'd be making a complex Korean dinner I opted for a simple blueberry raspberry smoothie. That's it!

That sounds heavenly. There's something simply magical about velveeta.

I'm feeling lazy today so I'll probably just slap some sauce and cheese on one of those crusts in my freezer and finally give them a test run. (They better be good, they cost a fortune!)

I saw that movie the other day. So good.

I had pasta with sirloin meatballs and a tiny, tiny bit of tomato sauce.

I am slowly adding tomato back. So far it has been ok.

I really hope this leads to success in the tomato department for you!

Raspberry and Mango Smoothie (with lactose-free yogurt). It was lovely and thick as a milkshake. YUM!

Today I will be making myself Eggs Benedict with some lovely local ham and orange-yolked eggs and my guilty pleasure (well, one of them) hollandaise. But I did not bring any English muffins with me (I am housesitting out of town) so I will use homemade bread instead.

I will be having a tropical smoothie. When I make smoothies I use milk as the liquid rather than juice for a thick, milkshake-like concoction. I also add ground flax seed.

Out of the house today subbing at the college. Brought some leftover chicken alfredo and a rather large slice of coconut pie. It isn't often I have to worry about lunch out of the house.

ooh, I like this thread even more than the dinner one! Lunch usually baffles me. I had a sauteed chicken breast with spinach. My seasoning was perfect today because it was unreal banana peel! :lol:
