whats in your lunchbox?

Postby heuji on Wed Mar 21, 2012 12:12 pm

everyone loves a 'sandvich', but, whats your favourite lunch time combo. if you don't eat sandwiches you should be shot! really, what the £$%$ do you eat for lunch then?
a peronal fave' of mine has to be the chicken and pork triple decker. 2 slices of white bread and a toasted brown bread in middle slice... *drool*! pork side is filled with belly of pork, coleslaw and tomato. chicken side is chicken breast, smoked crispy bacon, mayo, cucumber and sweetcorn <3 absolute heaven.
a close second would be an all-day-breakfast one. basically everything you'd fry up for dinner slammed into one sandwich, or roll :shock: yes im scots, so i do love pushing the heartattackometer. i did go through the sushi, healthy eating, phase. when my vocal pitch got slightly higher and i lost a testicle i stopped :lol:

Whatever catches my fancy on my lunchbreak tbh. usually the most healthy option I can find. I always treat myself to a BLT on a Monday though as a pick me up. Because Monday's suck.

Also, putting this in the tf2 section? really?

Agree with window here heuji. The rest of the board doesn't bite so I'm moving this to off topic :)

I go home for lunch and 90% of the time I have toast. Unless I have some thing like a French stick laying around.

Now I'm getting hungry. Hurry up lunch !

Eww!

Well today we have A roll with chorizo / sunblushed tomatoes and cucumber. Usually with a packet of crisps and something sweet like a muffin or a banana.

I also get Graze boxes (Google it!). They are a company that sends you a box with 4 different snacks in them which are usually fairly healthy. Nuts, seeds and dried fruit usually or crackers/flapjacks or mini bread things. Pretty expensive, but not much more than I was spending on an extra chocolate bar to get me through the day.

I just had a scotch pie with brown sauce in a roll! Awesome!

But working from a van I tend to end up visiting alot of bakerys for soup or greasy rolls, i do know a place that does an epic Omlette roll aswell.

6inch meat ball marinara on Italian with extra cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce. No salad, as it's unhealthy and generally bad for you. Followed with a bottle of water and a packet of McCoys Flame Grilled Steak crisps.

These are the greatest crisps on earth. So much win in one small bag. Love it <3

As for me, my lunch tends to revolve around some form of chicken roll/pitabread combination with some fruit and crisps.

Almost everyday at work. Wholegrain rice with chicken/turkey, with some chopped pecans and tomatoes. Sometimes just mayo and sweetcorn with the rice and chicken.

If we don't have much work, I might go grab a Nandos(half chicken) or a Subway(meatball sub!)

It really depends from day to day but what does make a regular return are; a wrap carpaccio, tomato soup, noodles, grilled ham and cheese sandwich, cheese and onion bread with a cheese mustard paste (I am sure this is translated wrong, hell I am struggling with the Dutch name! :P) and just normal bread with something on it.

Sandvich is serious business!

50% of my diet is served between some kind of bread lol. Todays was pastrami on sliced wholegrain with red cabbage, smothered in a homemade sauce. Diced red onion, 2 tsp of american mustard, 2 tsp of mayo and a healthy dose of paprika. Not unlike the special sauce you get on big macs.

Tomorrow, as I need to finish the pastrami, will be my bbq beef and bacon melt. 2 slices of bread covered in bbq sauce, covered in extra mature cheddar cheese. 2 slices of bread with pastrami, again covered in cheese. Grill until the cheese starts to go golden. At the same time either fry or grill 4 slices of bacon. Place the bacon on top of the pastrami and cheese slice, place the bbq and cheese slice on top. Grilling the bread this way keeps the outside relatively soft but gives the edges of the bread a nice crunch.

On tuesday I'll be trying the strangest lunch I've ever heard of. A full english breakfast PIE.
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.
