What's for dinner/lunch/some fantasy future meal? [More:]I'm just about to finish a HUGE job that has caused me a lot of stress, and once I'm done sleeping I intend to make up for all the time I have not spent cooking in recent weeks. So I'm calling on Metachat for some inspiration.

I'm planning to make a fairly simple chicken salad for dinner (bits of chicken, green leaves, other veg, dressing). You?
I have leftover sausage stuffed mushrooms for lunch today. I made them for a potluck, but saved some for lunch :)

This brussels sprout, chestnut tart is on my weekend cooking list soonish. I've got some vacuum-packed chestnuts in the cupboard and it just sounds yummy. But I'll be out of town this weekend, so it will have to wait. Unless I make it on work from home day.

Um, that would be THIS TART

Plan: Bacon, eggs, possibly tomatoes; with fresh bread and a cake from the nice bakery. Unless I change my mind.

Oh, that looks great, crush-onastick. Filing that one.

For my lunch? Leftover black bean and pumpkin soup, bread and butter.

I'm having leftover takeout (baked ziti, mmmm) with some green beans.

Dinner will probably be...well, I haven't thought that far ahead. Maybe egg in a frame? IDK.

I have some beef for braising, and broccoli. Might add a potato and a carrot for some stew. I also have a coupon for a free lunch at Famous Dave's BBQ.

I had a lovely lunch today at a Turkish restaurant near the office, a team lunch. I had red lentil soup, which was much more exciting than it sounded, full of delicate and complex flavours. That was followed by lamb meatballs with couscous, which was equally delicious. We were all too full for dessert and, to be fair, Turkish restaurants aren't exactly known for their desserts so nobody was tempted by the various combinations of pistachios, honey and yoghurt that was on offer. We were all ready for a nap by the time we got back to the office.

Cold cheeseburger left over from last night's supper, banana, and grape CapriSun for lunch. Grabbed whatever I could fast from the fridge this morning. First day back after spring break (blah). Running late. Not a bad lunch. I'll eat almost anything cold.

Peanut butter and jelly lunch. Making quiche (ham, Swiss, broccoli) and salad for dinner.

Ooh, I'm now having thoughts of cooking a complex Turkish meal... and about finding out what baked ziti is.

Just had an indulgent dinner of a dozen oysters and a caprese salad outdoors to celebrate the warm day. Now I must do some work, but it was worth it.
