OMG this couldn't have come at a better time. I've been failing to stick to my "bring every lunch" rule, mostly because I was too aspirational, as you described with that lovely quinoa dish above.
Today's solution? Bring avocado, bag of tomatoes, wrapped up hunk of fresh mozz, and travel size balsamic vinegar and EVOO (I know, who has those??). Cut them up onto tiny paper plate using flimsy plastic silverware from work. Enjoy.
And boy, did I. Why waste precious home time preparing the meal when you can waste stupid, seemingly infinite work time doing the same? REVELATION!
'I Have to Use Internet Explorer at Work' made me chuckle. At work.
