Quick, Easy Lunches


For work and home, I’ve been trying to find quick and easy lunches. I didn’t mind if I’d be eating the same lunch meal at home and then at work. But, I prefer having two different meals to mix it up.

Looking around in my house, I didn’t have much iningredients. Luckily, I had gone grocery shopping a few days before and got some staple items.

I ended up creating two kinds of lunches: Pork Spaghetti and Dumpling Soup.

For the Pork Spaghetti, I took a quarter portion of aΒ pork loin, peas, spaghetti noodles (about half a package), salt, pepper, and Knorr Parma-Rosa sauce. I had enough of this to last me about 3-4 days of work lunches. Here’s what I ended up with:

The Dumpling Soup is like the Tortellini Soup I made a while back, but of course, with dumplings! All you need for the Dumpling Soup are the following:

  • Chicken broth
  • Dumplings and Wontons (I used both because I wanted a variation of flavours)
  • Peas
  • Corn
  • Napa cabbage

To make this, I cooked the dumplings and wontons separately. Then in a separate pot, I boiled the chicken broth with the napa cabbage, peas, and corn, When the broth was done boiling, I added in the cooked dumplings and wontons and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes to mix the flavours.

I ended up having enough Dumpling Soup to last me 4 days. Quite filling too. The soup tasted much better once it settled in the pot the next day –Β but what soup doesn’t taste better the next day?

So, if you’re looking for quick and easy lunches, the two meals above are quite easy and quick to make. And, it’s enough to last you almost a whole work week!

Let me know what quick and easy lunches you make for work or at home πŸ™‚

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🀟
β €
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
β €
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
β €
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝
β €
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
β €
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️

Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
β €
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! πŸ™

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!

A nice, cold drink makes the summer heat beerable 🍺

I've been missing Iceland a lot lately and have been craving Einstâk beer. Here's a #ThrowbackThursday post to when I ordered a non-alcoholic, alcoholic beer in Iceland. Read about this funny story on my travel account ✈ @asyoutravelit.
