Early lunch thread


#1

Bit slow on here today, innit?

The canteen menu isn’t looking promising, so if I’m lucky I’ll get a baked potato. If I’m unlucky it’ll be some non-meal put together from various sides and the salad bar.

You must all be doing better than that, surely?


#2

Mate I’ve just had breakfast. Won’t be thinking about lunch for a while yet (I’ve got to remember how to cash a cheque).


#3

There’s some lamb kofta something in the cafe but I might just get a salad. I dunno.


#4

It definitely involves a special envelope, I remember that much.


#5

Fuck knows, it’s been about 5 years since I last had one.


#6

£3.50


#7

Salami and cream cheese bagel
Bag of spicy tomato Snaps


#8

Bit early mate. I’m on a site visit today so only options are not nice hospital canteen or petrol station M&S. Will almost certainly get my usual of sushi and popcorn.


#9

I made pesto pasta yesterday so got that for lunch today

tried to get some samphire for dinner but no luck. The greengrocer said he can bring me some if i give him a days noticed but that ain’t helpful to me now mate


#10

Clue’s in the title, “pal”.


#11

I cashed a cheque on Saturday. Just stuck it in a machine!

Lunch will wait, got a meeting 12:30-13:30. Sad and angry face.


#12

Stop the press, the meeting’s moved to 1.

Eating at 12. I need plans now…


#13

Can’t involve samphire on this short notice, apparently, so that’s out.


#14

My tajine and cous-cous will be sorely lacking.

Probably just have a sandwich. One of those shit samphire-free ones.


#15

Also had an absurdly early lunch. Two little baked potatoes, some absolutely fantastic ragu I made the other day, and a heap of peas. Still hungry though :grimacing:


#16

Is that for the Meera Sodha thing in the Guardian?


#17

had some leftover pizza for breakfast so not really too hungry

my body sort of feels like it’s about to fall apart from eating shite / drinking too much. should probably have some vegetables.


#18

YES
Doesn’t it look so beaut?


#19

Pretty sure I have purchased samphire in 'Bo’s before


#20

Yeah I’m gonna have to get my arse to the big bo’s. I tried waitrose but no luck.
