Lazy Lunches


I have to say I’ve never really been a huge fan of the sandwich when it comes to my lunch time choice, I’ve probably just distressed half the male population with this statement but I find them to be rather expensive if purchased on the go or if prepared beforehand at home they tend to be soggy by the time of consumption. Ideally I’d spend a few hours on a Sunday in the kitchen meal prepping lunches for the week ahead but of course sometimes my bed and binge watching a box set seems more appealing so this doesn’t always get done, in which case I need something quick but tasty that i can rustle up within 10 minutes the night before or the morning of work, luckily I have this covered and you can too…
