    Since we have a 'Here's what I had for dinner' thread, can we have a Here's what we had for lunch? I am always looking for ideas on good healthy lunches to bring in with me so hopefully this will take off! Photos always nice too :)

    I'll start: M&S Quiche Lorraine and a kinder egg

    Brought in some of last night's leftovers!

    Spaghetti Bolognaise.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,897 ✭✭✭Kimia

    Brilliant, if this thread takes off that means loads of ideas for 'batch-cooking' to bring in the next day for lunch!

    I've just had a bowl of lentil soup that I made a huge pot of earlier - with home made milk loaf dipped in it.

    And a packet of Walker's cheese & onion crisps :)

    I'm in college and have ran out of money due to alcoholism.
    I therefore had half a bag of Haribo I had left over from Monday. :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,286 ✭✭✭WesternNight

    I had a shallow-fried chicken fillet and some delish multi-grain brown bread. Very much a "what do I have in the house" job today.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,732 ✭✭✭✭kylith

    Leftovers from last night's dinner; stuffed steak with roasties, and a salad - half from Lidl, half from my garden.

    I'm having salad: iceberg, tomatoes, cucumber, mozzarella, red onion and black olives with balsamic dressing.
    I've become slightly addicted to mozzarella.

    Probably with a ryvita cracker with cashew nut butter for dessert :D

    Today I will be having nothing due to reasons outside of my control (lol,not,see post up the page)
    I will be having the same in the 'Here's what I had for dinner last night' thread.

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,150 ✭✭✭✭Malari

    I HOPED to have the leftovers of the last night's mushroom risotto, but there are never leftovers in our house, no matter how much I make. My boyfriend just loves home-cookin'!

    Instead I had cheese and crackers with grapes, followed by yoghurt and granola.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,766 ✭✭✭squeakyduck

    I'm gonna have some chicken dippers and chips! I'm not the best cook! I'll have to take a leaf out of yer books lads! :pac:

    I'm having lunch for dinner today because I got a serious amount of exercise already today, so I'm having pasta with bacon, peas, carrots, sweetcorn and garlic with sour cream. Tasty!

    Portion of microwave pasta and mayo at 12, hope to get some protein in a really bad eater, eat whenever my son lets me! May have a decaf coffee with a splash of milk now.

    Today is homemade carrot and coriander soup with brown bread and a ham, cherry tomato and cheese sandwich to follow. Can't wait I'm starved!

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,897 ✭✭✭Kimia

    What's the difference in taste between a duck egg and a hen's egg?

    I would like to know this too! I've never had a duck egg and someone gave us a half dozen from his own ducks today but I'm not sure what's the best way to eat them!

  • Registered Users Posts: 22,710 ✭✭✭✭The Hill Billy

    I get duck eggs occasionally & love them boiled just like a regular hen's egg.
    They're also great for baking.

    get some everyweek, they are a little stronger tasting than hens eggs
