Lunch – Local and Leftovers


I dislike seeing food being wasted, so whenever I am at home during the day my lunches can be interesting, to say the least.

2012-06-08 01Here is what I found for my lunch today.Clockwise from the top – last of the home-made tortillas from the freezer, some leftover coleslaw, a bell chilli, an avocado, spoonful of cold, mashed potato and the block of cheese.

The chilli and avocado are from the garden.  I then picked a perennial onion and a bunch of parsley.

2012-06-08 02The avocado skin had been nibbled by some of the local wildlife and there was dirt on it from where it had been lying on the ground but the inside was smooth, creamy and perfect when I cut it.

2012-06-08 03I spread the potato on the tortilla and then cut and piled all of the other ingredients on top, created a wrap and toasted it in the sandwich maker.

2012-06-08 04Here is my toasted gourmet wrap and a glass of lemon cordial.  I finished my meal with a mandarin from our tree.

What do you eat for lunches – at home or when you are at work?

  1. I end up eating a lot of leftovers for lunch because I’m lucky enough to go home for lunchtime. Unfortunately we make such large batches that sometimes I get sick of four days of the same meal. It’s really hard at that point to keep from staying on campus and eating at the cafeteria! But we’re taking a page out of your book and are trying to grow more of our own food. A home grown salad can make day four of leftover soup seem less boring. That was a really beautiful lunch you made.

  2. Depending on what you make, perhaps you could freeze some portions and have some the following week. It would add a bit of variety. Great that you are able to go home for lunch.
