Searched around, couldn't find one. Here's a thread to post about lunch! Sandwiches, soups, salads, even leftovers from last night's dinner! What's on the menu for your midday meal?


Today, I turned leftover roast beef from last night's dinner into a sandwich and cooked it in my panini maker. Was a little tough, but very tasty.

Just had a chicken salad sandwich made from last night's left over chicken breast.

The best thing about homemade chicken salad is that you don't have to worry about what is in it (too many times I feel restaurants use the scraps, etc.) or how long it has been sitting around.

Also, as opposed to how most chicken salad is made - from a simple baked or broiled breast (if you use breast meat as we do), ours is made from a marinated breast that was meant to have its own flavor as it was the main dish to a meal. Then, when you use that to make chicken salad, the flavor of the chicken salad is more robust because the chicken itself isn't bland.

To connect a bit to our bigger themes of the forum: is it just me, or does it seem that less places carry chicken salad than before - is it a food losing popularity? I wasn't alive in the Golden Era, but I always assumed it was popular then - was it?

Heated up some Tyson chicken wings. They're not great, but they're food. Can't wait until the Buffalo Wild Wings is finished being built. At least it will add something interesting to my boring little town.

Tuesday lunch with my regular Tuesday lunch pal --

Cheeseburger, medium-rare, with cheddar cheese, A-1 sauce, and a pickle. French fries. A Pepsi (no Coke served there). For dessert, a large square of chocolate fudge.

Tomorrow's lunch -- water and two saltine crackers.

How about pimento loaf and swiss cheese on some kind of round flat bread. A few baby (?) carrots on the side. I guess if I got up earlier I could whip up something gourmet, but my bride leaves at 0400 and I'm lucky to get anything. At least one of my office mates made something like pumpkin bread/loaf/who knows and brought it in. It stuck to the ribs, throat, esophagus, etc. all the way down. All with a diet Dr.Pepper chaser.

Some trail mix (cashews, almonds, peanuts, and m&m's) along with a protein bar.
I'm thinking this will be my regular lunch once my department's season starts cranking up.
Ie, something I can eat while driving...
