Get a load of my lunch! A Quiche Lorraine and Salad at Buena Vista Deli in Miami's Design District. I don't know how they did it but the first bite of that salad tasted like Marseille's 12 years ago. Some things, no matter how simple, are just that memorable.
Oops, I did it again! I opted out of eating the lunch I brought from home and bought lunch somewhere instead. Today it was too pretty not to share. I hit up the salad bar at The Fresh Market and could not stop myself from piling up all of this colorful and healthful goodness on my plate... or take-out container ;) I'll be eating my original lunch for dinner tonight...
Most nights, instead of just cooking for one, I make double and take the other half to work for lunch. Tonight I made pork chops seasoned with curry powder, salt and pepper, and cooked in a little coconut oil on med-high for 3-4 mins on each side. On the side, instant brown rice (hey, it's quick and tasty!) with a bit of frozen corn and fresh cilantro.. It all came together in less than 15 mins. Looking forward to lunch tomorrow!
Pork chops are lean and inexpensive, and like chicken, can be made so many different ways..
One for now, one for later... I might chop the chops and call it a rice bowl for lunch.
Love me some Brussels sprouts.. I roasted these this morning at 425 for about 25 mins, seasoned with salt and pepper, red pepper flakes and a drop (really, a tiny drop!) of agave on each. Voila... Sweet and spicy sprouts. Added a fried egg for protein and runny yolk goodness - got the idea from a local restaurant in Miami. I'll be having the same for lunch tomorrow.
