Pack Lunches – Lets get over the boring and mundane.

My new meal plan for one considering I’ll be living alone. Inc. suggested shopping habbits.
So I have been offered a new job that is 100 miles from my current location, meaning I will have to live as a singular for an indeterminate amount of time. Which made me think, I will need my lunch planning and meals, and possibly even breakfast if there is only one of me. Most recipes do servings for 4, or at a push two. I do not think eating some things four days later will be good for me, being concerned about germs and stuff. So without getting bored I thought I’d make a list of the things I’d like to have for lunch, so I don’t get bored and have the same thing day in, day out.

I’m thinking

Lunch:

  • Make tuna crunch in a baguette.
    : 2/3 baguettes, 1 can of tuna, mayo, red onion. Optional: Cucumber, sweetcorn
  • Make egg mayo sandwiches.
    : Bread, any time, 2 eggs, mayo, black pepper. Optional: Watercress, Lettuce
  • Make chicken/ham sandwiches/wraps
    : Bread/Wraps – use any type of meat maybe leftovers.
  • Salad
