Lunch is by far my least favorite meal. I have tons of wonderful breakfast recipes, not-to-mention everybody loves breakfast so it’s always a winner! Dinner can be tough when I don’t plan, but at least there are many options, again. Then there’s lunch.
For one thing, after cooking breakfast then getting started on school, I feel like the morning flies by. The next thing I know the kids want lunch, and I have no time to plan ahead to make something. They don’t like sandwiches too much, so that is rarely an option. I want it to be healthy and filling. I am slowly coming up with some fun alternatives, but I usually make them lunch and then it’s my turn.
I try to make salads for me — (but I’m often too hungry and just eat whatever.) If I can have patience, I will make myself something. This week, I did a corn salad that was awesome.
What I love about this salad is that it is versatile. Sometimes I do basil, and sometimes cilantro. Sometimes bacon and sometimes not. Tomatoes. Corn. Avocado. Red Onion. I’ve seen many variations on Pinterest, but usually just go with what I have. The dressing is always a little lime juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. If you have any lunch favorites, please pass them my way!
