I also remember some fabulous 3 cocktail lunches too... or my favourite bakery/deli's Tomato Florentine Soup with a half sangie of herbed cheese, lettuce and tomato on an oven fresh multi-grain roll. Sometimes lunch was the most looked forward to meal of the day!
When I worked for our fair city's municipal law department, lunch time was legendary. I became friends with the chief of the photography department and we would often dash off to Chinatown for dim sum or Villa y Zapata for Mexican or Minh Ahn for Vietnamese. Other times we'd have lunch in the comforts of the photo lab sharing homemade goodies. I'll never forget when we walked in on a somewhat embarassed coworker already knee deep in the process of lunching. He had covered his enlarger with clean photolab towels, lit a candle, opened a hearty local microbrew to accompany a hunk of hard salami and crusty bread (I forgot his veggie of choice, which might have been kolrabi!).
Fun times, good memories and wonderful food.
Early yesterday afternoon, my neighbour came over and we made pita bread together, from scratch. Yes, the first few didn't puff. But enough did to have a delicious lunch with left over roasted chicken breast. I made it into a salad of homemade mayo, cranberry raisins, a dash of left over dry white wine, toasted walnut pieces, a pinch of garlic powder, sea salt, pepper and dried rosemary from my garden.
This was really lovely stuff.
In the similar spirit to the Dinner thread, what's up for lunch?
