6 Favorite Lunch Recipes

December 5, 2016

The North Loop is great for cocktails and dinner, but when it comes time for lunch, fast and inexpensive options are few and far between. Now that the weather is finally starting getting cooler, my Sundays are usually spent at the grocery store or in the kitchen prepping meals for the week.

Today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite lunch recipes. All of these are relatively inexpensive, and easy to make on Sunday and throw in the fridge or freezer for your lunch enjoyment all week long. Sorry, C. McGees.
