When I'm working at a school, I prefer to pack a lunch that I don't have to reheat. This is partly because I don't want to compete for a microwave, and partly because I'm antisocial at lunch and like to stay in my classroom and read.
I'm not a big sandwich eater. They're okay, but if I can eat something else, I will.
Tonight with our dinner, we had BLT Cucumbers. They're fabulous, in my opinion. I figured they'd be good with my lunch tomorrow, but they're a bit messy to eat. I opted to cut them up and toss 'em all in a container like a salad.
For protein I made some spicy chickpeas. They are super simple to make, and they taste great, although I think they could use a bit more spice. They can be eaten like finger food and make a great snack.
Some crackers and a couple of cookies will round out the meal.
1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 Tbls. sesame oil (you can substitute olive oil)
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp coriander
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
