So last week my (brain? stomach?) body finally revolted at the thought of another almond-butter sandwich. Nausea and fatigue at every attempt to take another bite, even at 4:30pm while my stomach was growling and there was half a sandwich left. Time to figure out a new solution to this lunch thing. I see three options:
1) deli meat sandwiches
2) dinner leftovers
3) make something on the weekend, stick it in the freezer and pull individual portions for lunch
Deli meat is expensive. Let’s consider this one back-up.
Using dinner leftovers means we have fewer leftovers for dinner. And since I do menu planning on Saturdays before we go to the grocery store, if we run out of dinner leftovers, there’s no plan for dinner mid-week or something. Adam can improvise, but the lack of a plan makes me antsy. Not too good an idea to plan around.
Which leaves weekend cooking. And in that vein – tried out a casserole this week: Cauliflower Chicken Sausage casserole.
Unfortunately, this one was not filling enough – maybe if there was a carbohydrate or twice the sausage. Works as a light lunch I suppose- I just don’t eat light lunches apparently. Not that fond of cauliflower either.
On wards then.
