    Welcome to September's bring your lunch to work, the summer holidays have finished and we are on the slope to Autumn.

    Feel free to post what you're having/planning/eating for lunch as this may give others a idea of what to make and I'm always up for inspiration.

    There are 20 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.

    My 5th working day this month and my 4th lunch from home - last Tuesday was a delayed team buffet to celebrate Eid, so it was lots of yumminess in exchange for a 2 donation to charity. Today was rice with vegetables (fairly dull but I was not in a cooking mood last night!) but the watermelon with berry dip more than made up for the dullness of the rice.

    Yesterday was day 6/20 and I carefully packed my lunch and then left it on the kitchen table. However, I was saved by the emergency cup a soup in my desk drawer, so whilst I was quite hungry and grumpy by the end of the day at least I didn't buy any lunch!

    Morning

    So far I have done 4/15.

    This comprises

    2 x salad with mixed beans, 1 with beetroot and 1 with avacado
    1 x salad with pasta with tomato paste stirred though and
    1 x leftover potatoes and brocolli topped with cheese and beans.

    I bought 1 lunch last week.

    Today I am taking a salad, with beetroot. Might make cous cous...

    Morning All!

    Just checking in with 10/20 days (including today obv), 100% so far!

    Made another batch of pasta salad mid week, so I've been eating that all week. Think I'll go back to sandwiches next week so I can eat pasta for my dinner next week lol! x
