During those lunch meetings, I took plenty of notes...notes on what would make great box lunches! If I owned a catering company, I’d offer things like fresh green salads (no iceberg lettuce, please), chopped fruit, veggie noodle dishes, and inventive wraps and sandwiches. Instead of pop, there would be plenty of water and freshly brewed iced tea. Since we all need something salty and crunchy, I’d offer some seasoned pretzels or chips and guacamole.
Isn't a sandwich like this so much more exciting?
Focaccia bread slathered with basil pesto and piled high with marinated mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sautéed onions, romaine, and freshly sliced tomatoes. This is such a great sandwich and I brought it to a recent family gathering along with Blue Cheese Potato Salad and sliced watermelon.
If I were served something like this for lunch, maybe I'd be taking notes on the actual meeting rather than daydreaming about a future in catering. Well, okay, maybe I'd still be daydreaming, but at least I'd be full and happy!
How would you spice up boring box lunches?
