- Balyolya's Soup: Usually made with our own chicken, beef, or turkey stock. Ingredients (all or some): potatoes, pasta, rice, carrots, tomatoes, cauliflower, split yellow peas, celery, mushrooms, onions. Despite eating subtle variations of this soup every week for almost two years now, we never get tired of it! I'm also finally warming up to the idea of making some different new soups myself as soon as I'm brave enough (and don't have a ton of work to catch up on). We eat the soup about 4 times a week for lunch.
- Leftover breakfast: When I make a large and filling breakfast, instead of letting the leftovers wait till next day (food doesn't go in the trash around here), we eat them for lunch. Most often this is the omelette I make for breakfast once a week that serves 4 people.
- Sandwiches: Sometimes when we have our fresh bread, I make some open faced sandwiches with Kate's butter, raw milk cheese, chicken/turkey breast, spinach leaves, cucumbers, and anything else I might have around. If there is no meat, and that happens often, I just put avocado on it - balances nicely with the saltiness of cheese. The sandwich is usually accompanied by hot tea around here.
- Dinner for Lunch: Finally, since I make dinner at lunch time because hubby works second shift, sometimes we just eat a part of the dinner for lunch. Simple, two for one. This happens once a week or so.
