Wedding Woes

WFL?

I'm having the lasagna rolls I made for dinner last night.  They are fuh-reaking amazing and were easy.  This will be a leftover spaghetti sauce staple from now on.  My kids both had seconds. 

What did you or are you having?

Re: WFL?

  • I had vegetable soup. And I was still hungry so I went to Starbucks. I really need to pack better lunches. Anyone have easy/good recipes to share?
  • not sure yet. too many meetings. can't get away until 1. :-(

    i kind of want a shawarma, but it's like a 10 minute drive from my office, so i'd either need to eat fast/run back or take a long lunch. since I was trying to leave a little earlier, i don't want to be gone forever. 

  • I had hot cereal. I have pudding by my desk just in case. With being sick I have little to no appetite.

    @mrsconn23  share your roll recipe!
  • Chicken noodle soup with carrot and celery sticks dipped in ranch.

    Grabbed a diet coke and a grilled chicken go wrap from Wendy's. Still hungry so I'll eat the leftover kraft mac & cheese that I have. @charlotte989875 I have the same problem - I never pack lunches that are appealing so I go out instead and spend stupid amounts of money eating out.

    This is funny. I was about to AW my good lunch choices in the Wednesday thread. I brought baked chicken, tomato basil salad, and roasted asparagus. Somebody bought pizza for the office but I ate the food I brought instead! That's a first for me.

  • Chicken wrap. I need more inspiration for meals.

    I had a Healthy Choice Cajun Chicken & Shrimp, with chicken that was pretty rubbery, and half an avocado.  My stomach is still rumbling, but there's no more food except candy here.

  • I had pizza leftover from my baby shower yesterday. and then a bunch of fun size candy bars 
  • I haven't made lasagna rolls in ages. My recipe was similar but had broccoli and ground turkey and they freeze really well.  My kids don't like the cheese part.

    I had leftover Hawaiian pulled pork and rice.  The pork was from yesterday.  It was part of a pork butt, with a can of crushed pineapple and Campbells Hawaiian Luau Crock Pot Sauce.  Just made regular plain rice and mixed the two together.  I had about 3 lunches worth of leftovers and a bunch of the pork to use for other things.

    I'm still hungry and thinking of going to get a slice of Sicilian. . .

  • There is a small deli place on the first floor of my building.  It is a God send.  Very basic food, but cheap.  Home of the $3.25 breakfast plate (two eggs, two slices of toast, grits, and either 3 slices of bacon or 2 sausage patties).

    But today I went there for lunch and got a roast beef on French with Swiss.  Probably about an 8"-9" long sandwich for $4.25.  Noshing my last couple bites as I write.  Nicely full.

    Lately, I've been good and have been keeping Lean Cuisines in the freezer at work.  About TWO of those would make a really nice lunch, lol.  I control myself and supplement with yogurt or fruit.

  • Tasty sandwich from a small local chain.  But I ate it in the car while running to buy the final supplies for our pumpkin carving contest at work, so I just feel sort of gross for scarfing it like a starving wolf.
  • Leftover meatball orzo soup.

    @charlotte989875 do you cook dinner at home often? I usually try to make enough food for dinner plus leftovers for lunch the next day. If you're in a food rut in general I have tons of recipes stockpiled that I can share with you!

    I do cook from home a lot, but also in a food rut, so I'd love some easy weeknight recipes!

  • I've been trying to prep a weeks worth of lunches on Sunday's. This week it's roasted sweet potatoes with grilled chicken breast. Lunch is at least $15 so I had to start bringing my own. For dinners I've been buying pre cooked food from this chef in my area. She does 5 different meals for $55. It's been a god send cause I'm super lazy.

    Check out http://www.damndelicious.net/. She has awesome recipes. Here are some I've made recently that turned out great! I also love Cooking Light magazine. A lot of their recipes aren't available online without a subscription. I subscribed to it last year and it has been 100% worth the money.

    Edited to fix links and to add that TK screwed my boxes up!

    I usually do a Lean Cuisine for lunch and like a zillion snacks because I can never get full.  I LOVE homechef, but again, the meals are not filling for me.  This is what I made yesterday! Turkey pot pie :)

  • @CharmedPam  I have never seen turkey pot pie look cute, but you have succeeded

    It wasn't my recipe :) It was all homechef.  It was really good though and super easy!  If you're not lazy like I am and can go grocery shopping (homechef delivers) you can make it too -
