When you work from home, lunch time always comes around much sooner than you think. It may be due to my unstructured schedule, the fact that I’m a late riser, or both. In any event, I’m often scrambling to make something for lunch, especially when my husband reminds me that it’s 1pm and neither one of us has showered or thought of lunch.
If there are leftovers of any kind, I’m extra inspired. Lunch is partly prepared. For example, a few pan-fried potatoes and a couple of barbecued ribs become the foundation for a hash and salad meal. Pan-fried tofu squares and a handful of boiled broccoli get cut up and dropped into a pot of instant noodle soup. There have been many ho-hum lunches but this cold soba noodle from a couple weeks ago was worth sharing with you. That’s to say, I’d make it again!
