What's for Lunch
Also in the mix is a brick of feta cheese, six diced chicken thighs, oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh squeezed lemon juice. The liquid from the sheet I baked the chicken on is in there for flavor as well. Shopping at Price Rite, I'm getting these frozen veggies for two bucks a bag and they are worth it for the convenience. I couldn't pull the selection of ingredients together from scratch on my own. We'll eat this cold and it will serve us both for five lunches -- probably with some to spare.
Making a big batch like this keeps us on track. We always have something healthy and filling for lunch. Granted, this isn't low calorie, but it's healthier than a sub, pizza or wings. One big bowl of lunch costs about as much to make as the weekly lunch I used to go out for with my work buddies on Fridays at my old job.
If it looks like there will be more than we need for the week towards the end of the week, I'll probably work it into a soup. Not only am I cheap, I hate the thought of food waste because we live in a world of surplus and over-consumption. There is no free lunch, but I'm OK with a frugal one!
