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 aย 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 –ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy ๐Ÿฐ

In 2015, I went to Sugar Marmalade went it first opened in Mississauga. I wasn't impressed with it. Four years later, my opinion hasn't changed at my second visit. Check out my quick review in my IG Stories.

It's the long weekend ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€”Let's par-tea! ๐ŸŽ‰ โ €
Earlier this week I finally got to try @thealley.ca in Toronto. Since it was my first visit, I decided to order the Deerioca. This drink is made with brown sugar instead of white. Make sure you mix it (Swipe โฉ) before drinking it, otherwise the brown sugar will only settle at the bottom. You also have the option of choosing regular milk or soy milk.
โ €
It wasn't bad but the brown sugar didn't give me the sweetness I'm used to. It did taste familiar to a non-bubble tea drink. But I wouldn't mind going back to try a different drink to compare to other bubble tea places.

If you have any recommendations, leave it in the comments :)

Yolks on you if you don't order the Spaghetti Carbonara from @scaddabush!
โ €
My go-to order is usually the Roasted Fennel & Sausage Fettuccine but yesterday I decided to try something different. I went for the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delish! ๐Ÿ˜‹
โ €
It was creamy and full of flavour. I also don't like bacon (Don't @ me!) but thus was bearable for me. It was a bit too oily near the bottom of the dish, so make sure you mix it well!
โ €
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size optionโ€”it's cheaper when splitting the bill! ๐Ÿ˜‰
