No, this isn’t a genius post but I realized that sometimes, you just need ideas for those quick, at work lunches where you don’t want to pack a lunchbag…. Or you hit the snooze one too many times, didn’t make anything the day before and have to grab and run. With that in mind, I might try to do some posts like this here or there as I find good quickie lunches. I know I’d appreciate tips and tricks for it. More heads and always better than one, especially with food.
This time around, I gave Lipton’s Cup of Soup a shot. They’re just quick little packets of dried soup you can make in a mug (convenient for those stuck at desks and already have a mug hanging around) with some water and a microwave. I had the cream of chicken one which is alright. No, it isn’t mind blowing good as some chicken stews that I’ve had (and need to recreate) but in a pinch, it isn’t bad.
I would suggest, however, that you add some crackers to it. Cheez-its are my choice because they have a nice flavor, decently salted and crumble up really nicely. Saltines would work but these little packets really need a punch of flavor somewhere. For kids, if you’re traveling, I’d throw in goldfish…actually, as an adult, I’d do it to!
In short, invest in a little box or two just in case. You never know when you need it.
