    Who else is struggling with lunch at home?

    In all of day two working at home, I've had leftovers for lunch both times after some deliberation . I guess I buy lunch a fair bit. Not all dinners suit leftovers. What the heck is for lunch?

    Eggs are a bit scarce and we go through 1/2 a loaf of toast and 3/4 of bread sandwiches with kids etc without me hoeing into it. If I start as well, it will disappear and you are restricted to 4 loaves currently. Sodded if I want to make more trips to the supermarket until it calms down a notch or two.

    Don't really have time to make homemade sushi in qtys only I would eat.

    Hmm. . .
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Not at all. A few spare loaves of bread in the freezer compartment. Breakfast along with the evening meal are our main ones. A cheese /onion toasty with fruit a few biscuts and drinks during the rest of the day.

    Yes but when you have more that 2 mouths in the house and can only buy 4 loaves the math doesnt work

    Local dairy, gas station ..... At our local we can get two toast loaves for $3.50. Only a 1/2hrs walk there and back. Delivery time is around 9.30am. We have 4 occupents here at the moment and manage fine. The 16yo boy lives on noodles and cordial most of the time.

    As soon as a fiejoa hits the ground here Connie consumes it. Goes through a bowl in one sitting. You need to keep away from her for a few hours after that though....

    Pearl barley brought to the boil and then simmered for half an hour, drained and rinsed, commercial soup on top and the lot heated through then served. Won't win any prizes but it has been working so far.

    Read one of the wife's many cookbooks. You'll be surprised what you can do without bread.

    I tend to eat when bored. I am bored and the pantry is way fuller than normal.
    Usually have sushi for Saturday lunch. Love aki bento. Eggs on toast today me thinks.

    Yeah, my eldest daughter keeps taking everything I can eat at the moment and then laughing at me. She knows that if we can't get to the shops for some reason that she's gonna be the first to be eaten, so I made get the last laugh yet.
    I didn't think!!! I experimented!!!

    Fuck! A gravity defying pantry. A very tidy one though.

    Lunch is the difficult meal. Breakfast is sort of standard and dinner is planned. Lunch today was boiled eggs and soldiers.

    Tomorrow the supermarket should be here with a load of stuff including tins of salmon etc. Otherwise there's going to be lotsa instant noodles. The diet will be starting to seem like an American prison.

    Well the wife is busy with the Easter window, heck maybe it does deserve a picture, but she'll crack into some thick soup with stock and lentils, tomatoes and of course a shit ton of meat, because, well we didn't evolve to eat grass. Pork breakfast sausages. It's not even breakfast.

    Just the thing as its turned 'orrible here. Late start to the day with frozen croissants baked for, well I'll call it breakfast.


    (Edit). Mmm, tasty. Might jam in a piece of vogels in the toaster (there's that bread again) and stir a bunch of chilli in with mine as I like an unfeasibly hot soup.
