When I am over my head at work, making lunch in the morning is not something I want to spend a lot of time on. That’s why I try to cook on the weekends, so that there are leftovers that can be quickly scooped into containers for lunch. Yesterday morning there wasn’t much to choose from but there were four different take-out containers from last week, each with a bit left: Vegetable Fried Rice, Sticky White Rice, Broccoli in Garlic Sauce, Egg Foo Yung. I dumped all of them into one container, mostly thinking it was the best I could do and resigning myself to a lunch that would be mediocre at best.
But it was great. I stirred it all together, warmed it up in the microwave and it was a big comfort at lunchtime. Not quite macaroni & cheese, or pizza, but close!
Do you have a surprising mash-up in your life?
