Working Girl's Lunch

Since I am back at work after the Christmas holidays, I have experienced 2 phenomena :

1. My waist line has grown
2. My bank balance has shrunk

As these two go hand in hand, I am trying to make adjustments on both sides.

And so I introduce the packed lunch.

Couscous Salad (enough for 3 lunches)

1 cup Couscous
1 cup Boiling water
1 cup cooked green beans
10 salted Almonds (chopped in small pieces)
3 sun dried tomatoes (reconstituted)
1 small piece of steak thinly sliced (you can use any left over meat)
Salt and Black pepper

Make up the couscous according to the instructions on the packet.
Toss all the other ingredients into the couscous.

This really is a healthy lunch, which is easy to throw together while making your evening meal.

Never frown, even when you are sad,
because you never know who is
falling in love with your smile.

This looks like a wonderful lunch selection. My family adores cous cous, so I'll have to try this.

Sorry to be so cruel to your New Year's resolution with my cake post!

I am sure they will love it.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
