I have been considering making my own lunches to work. I mean, lunch boxes can be the cutest thing!
That aside, the most pressing reason would be my dislike of how our usual hawker fare (though delicious) are usually sooooo oily. Maybe it’s the coming of age… “You are what you eat.” Sometimes I cringe thinking about the kind of junk I put into my body. Our body is our temple, treat it well and it will likewise.
I’m gonna sound ironic here, but I actually love burgers! I know they have a reputation of being ‘unhealthy’, but I guess that’s because regular patties are made up of mostly unwanted meat (think ears, nose…eww). No wonder they are relatively cheap. However, if the patties are of higher quality (consisting of mostly real meat instead of unwanted meat), I think burgers make a good meal. Of course, alongside with some greens :)
American sliders for lunch at House@Dempsey!
Cuz it’s a burger-kinda-day ;)
What’s in my burger… Ground beef, tomatoes, onions and ‘secret sauce’ (hahaha).
I asked for medium rare but the waiter told me that it’s better to go for medium well because (in his words) ‘it’s ground beef’ and ‘I don’t want it to spoil your lunch’. There you have it – Medium rare is only for higher quality meat like steak. Always go for steak if you can!
Besides burgers, I love wraaaaps too! If only we had Pret-A-Manger here… I miss the Hummus wrap :(
Back to meal preparation. My only concern is the freshness. How long can I keep the rice in the fringe? Will the texture of the rice turn funny the next day?
How a typical meal prep looks like:
We don’t have a microwave at home (mum isn’t a huge advocate of microwave – radiation and stuff) so I’m not well-versed in that arena. But I guess it’s pretty foolproof – Pop the tupperware (with the lid open) into the microwave, press the button, and your food should be done in less than 5 mins! Let’s hope my new office has a (functioning and clean) microwave in the pantry ;)
Ending the post with a picture of our Pleated Playsuit ^^
And it’s gonna be Fridaaaaaaay!
