Default Lunchtime Choices

I'm having Thai food, something called gai pad bai grapau (chicken, chilies, onion and mushrooms) with extra chilies and onions which it also comes with a pancake roll, soup, salad and rice for $7.50. It better come soon I'm staving.

What's everyone else having or had for lunch today?

If I told you, you might not be so thrilled with your chillies and mushrooms.

For some reason this reminds me to mention that Doohans bakery there is now offering Gluten free stuff...you probably knew that already.

Sorry, thread drift. Boring ham sarnies for me today.

gai = chicken, pad = fried, bai grapau = thai basil

(just showing off)

Was it any good?

I had Butter and Herb flavor instant mash, very filling. I usually have quick and easy stuff like that at work since there's only a kettle and microwave. If I'm at home it'll be either a couple of Egg Mayo sandwiches or Beans on Toast usually Maybe a salad if I feel like being healthy.

Sadly I was just passing by, but there was a sign outside. I thought of you, then promptly forgot

Finest donuts and pastries in the world, but I doubt its all gluten free. Might be worth a call though to find out.

Default Re: Lunchtime Choices

I usually have some of whatever was left over from supper last night, with a nice bit of salad (we're still cropping huge numbers of cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes from the garden; the spinach has made a bid for freedom so no nice baby salad leaves...) and some fruit. There was nothing appetising left in the fridge this morning, however, so I had a large sandwich from subway. I can't remember exactly which of the mind-boggling variety of choices I made, but it had some meat, some cheese and all the optional bits & pieces in it. Oh, and a bag of crisps. And a coke. There's no point buying lunch if it's going to be all healthy...

I'll be in there tomorrow.

PS I'm told that Glover's pies are even better than Dooher's.

Come to think of it, it did have basil in it. It was very tasty, although their idea of a spicy or hotness rating system needs recalibrating as I had 3 chilies next to mine and it wasn't very hot at all. I don't like to complain as I did this at an Indian place last year and the next time I went in I think the chef took it as a challenge and the food nearly blew my head off.

Packet of crisps, some cantelope and a slice of celebratory leaving cake. It was a busy morning/lunchtime/early afternoon.
