What’s in the fridge? or “I’m hungry, what’s for lunch?

This is my favorite kind of lunch. It’s not just reheated leftovers. It’s made up of all sorts of leftovers, a little of this and a little of that, all thrown together. It’s really the best kind of lunch.

So I had

  • grilled zucchini, eggplant and red peppers
  • black rice
  • roasted chili/pepita sauce
  • marinated cucumbers
  • half an avocado
  • leftover salad with lemon and oil dressing

So I heated up the veggies and rice in the microwave, poured on the sauce and mixed the cukes and avocado with the salad. Et voila!

The tea, by the way, is genmaicha, which is green tea and roasted rice powder. If you’ve never tried it before, you should! It’s delicious!

I’d love to know what other people eat for lunch, especially you stay-at-home types. Soup and sandwich? Leftovers? Ice cream and cookies? What do you eat for lunch?


About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
