the lunch thread

Recommended Posts

Got tired of making my own lunch every day, and broke down and ordered banh mi and sweets from the local Vietnamese restaurant that doubles as a French bakery (not kidding--the owner is a Vietnamese woman who grew up in France and was trained in pastry-making there).

Found a little dough from my last focaccia effort, hiding itself in the fridge; so whether it's 72-hour or even 96-hour, made a pizza with it. Topped with another fridge stowaway, the tomato sauce, some mozzarella and parm. Was quite tasty.

Thanks! It comes together very easily once you get pâte brisée made. My rolling skills really suck.

I Wanna Know What Lunch Is

Do you mean in an existential way?  Cause we're kinda showing you what lunch is.

I think he WANTS you to show him. And he might also want to FEEL what lunch is.

Not that it matters, but is there a reason the Lunch thread is in “General Food and Drink Discussion” whereas the Breakfast and Dinner threads are in “In the Kitchen”?

I asked that question ages ago. If everyone would like, I will move it over.

Because pre-Corona, lunch was often purchased and not made at home.

For lunch the other day, with a tossed salad...

Tumminia busiate (made from an ancient grain in Sicily), with a less than traditional pesto. In Sicily, and for this pasta specifically, the traditional pesto, called Pesto Alla Trapanese, is made with basil, almonds and tomatoes, much different than a Ligurian pesto.
