"You're busted." that's what my doctor said after a physical a couple years ago. needed to lose weight, exercise, lay off the beer, salt, fatty stuff. well there's no way in hell i'm giving up the hot lunch. even in the summer when we get up to a scorching high of 72' i'll still make pho for lunch. so i started running again, lost 20 pounds and the hot lunch routine is not in jeopardy. there's nothing elaborate about my hot lunch...it's just not cold. leftovers usually morphed into something slightly different than the night before with a somewhat consistent cast of characters...habanero, scallions, hoisin, broth, refried beans, freshly picked greens and chives, eggs, bread. hot lunch means eating well with no more than 10-15 minutes of time invested. like adding some of the cast of characters to a ramen bowl. or a sandwich. a grilled sandwich.
