So I claim to hate leftovers. With the exception of soups, they just never taste as good. And I’m all for variety too – having the same thing I had for dinner is boring to me. But I think there are certain types of leftovers that hold up well, and I’ve been really enjoying having “dinner for lunch.” Soups have always been good, but lately so have our dinner veggies and grains. So I take it back that I hate them. Eating a hot lunch is so satisfying, and especially nice since it’s cold now. The thought of a chilled salad sends shivers down my back. So I think I’d like to start making more of an effort to have leftovers for lunch, at least on the days when I can eat at home, and also preparing more foods on the weekends like I did with this rice.
So for lunch I reheated the leftover Red Lentil Dal from the other night along with my last portion of brown rice (which I added raisins and garam masala to).
Lastly, for the second time in my life I cooked with frozen spinach and really liked it! I thawed out a cup or so until hot and then stirred in plain yogurt and spices. Perfecto!
On the side I had a tiny apple with cinnamon. After taking 2 bites, the contrast of hot and cold (we keep our apples in the fridge) was too much so I nuked it for 30 seconds. Hot apple pie!
When I got home from class today I had a cup of tea to keep warm with a splash of milk –
And a dried apricot because my mouth was bored –
My welcome goodie box arrived right after lunchI had a few of the Oatmeal Squares from the box. I love this cereal and haven’t had it in ages. Looks like I’m all set on oats for a while.
