Something new for the menu

Recommended Posts

Ok this may sound silly but I have my assembly next weekend as usual we have to prepare our own lunch but I am so tired of the usual sandwich and/or salad. Does anyone have any ideas for something different? Thought of a chicken curry salad on a bed of mixed greens BUT IT'S STILL A SALAD! LOL

I like apples and cheese so I will usually slice up an apple and two cheese sticks.

Fruit and protein together is good brain food. Personally I stay away from carbs and sweets while I'm at a convention,  it's not always convenient to take a walk outside to whistle a short tune...:whistling:

This is really a tough one because you can't heat anything up, don't want anything heavy to put you to sleep, plus you probably wouldn't want anything messy. 


I always packed wraps or sandwiches to keep it simple, but love the idea of sushi, spring rolls or hummus. Speaking of hummus, I love a good Mediterranean wrap.. hummus, feta olives, cucumber, a drizzle of some nice olive oil, dash of paprika. Mmmmm.. 😁


What if you packed your chicken curry salad as a wrap? If you have a thermos, you could pair it with a soup. Or pack some fruit or yogurt.

Cured meats and bread/olives can work - if you are careful enough to not drop it all over yourself!

Wraps are always a good one, but very similiar to sandwiches in that sense.


Hummus with celery, breads and other dipping foods is also a good one.

Tortilla chips with dips too. Again, also messy if you're incapble of eating normally like me haha.


Cold pasta dishes work well too.

I've grown accustomed to eating simple meals at the circuit assemblies alsol (i.e., salads and sandwiches) but once in a while I'll heat leftovers using my mini crockpot warmer.

Usually I can find an outlet to reheat my food at the venue and it's nice to have a warm/hot meal during intermission.


In the alternative, I'll use my food storage thermos so by the time lunch begins, my food is still warm.
