Broccoli Slaw with Salsa Verde

I loosely based this on a cabbage dish I like to order at a Mexican-ish restaurant downtown. I ended up using broccoli slaw instead of cabbage because it’s what Trader Joe’s had.

Easy Lunches: Chicken, White Rice, Soy Sauce, Nuts, Scallions

Exactly what it sounds like. When John was single, he used to eat rice with soy sauce, peanuts and scallions for dinner sometimes. We have a bunch of leftover rice in the fridge, so I had the same combination, with a pan-seared chicken thigh on top. Satisfying and simple.

Club Wraps

I may have a new favorite low-stress lunch option. I’m going low carb for the next two weeks leading into Mostly Meatless March. I just really need to get my weight under control (too many events and meals out lately). Didn’t have much in the fridge for lunch beyond rice, so I hit up the grocery store and this idea came to mind.

Club sandwiches are one of those foods I just crave every once in awhile (lately I’ve been having them on rye – yum!). Is the bread necessary to satiate the craving? These aren’t much to look at, but they did the trick, and were really easy and WW-friendly. I think I am going to make a turkey breast next week for dinner, and I bet these would be great with fresh turkey, too.
