    Welcome to August's bring your lunch to work, the summer holidays have started and no doubt some people will be going on holiday.

    There are 23 working days up for grabs.

    Let me know if you want to join in and I'll add you to the list on the next post.

    So come on.....who's in??? The more the merrier.

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Third working day of the month for me, and third homemade lunch.
    Couscous leftover from last night, with radishes, cucumbers and ham added to it. Really looking forward to it.

    Bad day for me! All intentions of making something for lunch today but after getting home late last night then sleeping in this morning and running out the house with 5mins to spare..... It was a cheese pasty from the bakery unfortunately.

    On plan for tomorrow! Left over lasagne for lunch. 5/18

    Morning All!

    Including today, I'm up to 9/23, which is every day so far!

    Made a bowl of chuna (chickpeas instead of tuna) mayo, enough to do 4 sandwiches this week. Added some lettuce and sliced tomatoes for some crunch. Need do come up with something for Friday, will look through my new Vegan on the go cookbook I got as a bargain price from Amazon.

    Mr Thrice is on 6/20 seeing as I made his lunch last night along with my own

    I'm working away this week, which means a week living in a hotel! Taking cans of soup with me so there is no temptation to use the office canteen!
