|Many of us have been living the work from home life for well over a year. By now lunch has turned into a predictable menu. |
This week we’re bringing a few ideas to reignite the work from home lunch hour. These ideas will have you looking forward to your break!
Quiche Me If You Can offers full size and petite quiches. These hold up great in the fridge and reheat like a dream in the oven. Cover with foil at 350 until warmed through. Buy a few small ones in a variety of flavors, such as Roasted Garlic with Broccoli and Irish Dubliner Cheese or buy a large one and portion it out for easy lunch retrieval. Christa buys all of her ingredients from local farms and makes each quiche individually.
Liz from Queen Chili (and Owl & Anchor) has released a line of made from scratch chilis, such as her well known Cincinnati Chilis and a Hot Bean vegan option. Reheat a portion at lunch time, top with salsa and chips from Hot Mama Salsa or a chunky picante sauce from Picasso’s PDX Picante along with a dollop of sour cream from Mundus Foods and cilantro from one of our farms.
If a snack plate is more to your liking, then select a cheese such as Fromage Blanc from By George Farm. Spread on one of Grano’s baguettes and top with Rose City Pepperheads jelly.
Prepare a quick hummus platter by cutting up some fresh carrots and radish dippers from Brown Bottle, Sun Love, Coyote Ridge or Farm D’ICI. Pair with hummus and naan or pita chips from The Hummus Stop.
Prefer to keep things old school? Let’s elevate that PB&J by using some of Bliss’ Nut Butter and Diana’s Delights raspberry jam on Fat Dutch Bread’s sprouted grain.
Don’t forget to round out your meals with some fresh strawberries from RJ Farms or Kombucha from 4 Hearts!
You can find all of these vendors at the market this Saturday!
