Now that most people are working from home, more people are faced with the challenge of how to make their lunch different so they aren't boring and too homemade. We have some ideas to change up your daily midday meal:

  1. Barbecue Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

    Five ingredients are all you need to make this decadent fried rice recipe. You can add more ingredients if desired such as mixed vegetables, cubes of potatoes, and chopped pechay or kangkong, but the main idea here is that you can have a barbecued chicken meal without needing to barbecue anything. Since you're at home, you can marinate the chicken in a little barbecue marinade before grabbing a grill pan or frying pan.

  2. Monte Cristo Sandwich Recipe

    If there is one sandwich that takes the ham and cheese combination to another level, it is this one. If you have a love affair with all things ham and cheese, this sandwich will make your dreams come true. It's a sandwich made better with mayonnaise and mustard and then treated like French toast. You'll love this fresh from the pan!

  3. Pan-Fried Pork Steak Recipe

    What makes steaks so delicious is really the freshness of it coming straight from the pan. A steak is just not the same when it gets cold. In fact, that's a sad meal. No steak should be left waiting to be eaten! Instead, take advantage of your change to have a truly memorable meal at your work table. You don't even need a ribeye steak! Try a more affordable and easier to cook pork version that will satisfy just as well.

  4. Roasted Caesar Salad Recipe

    Another big advantage of having your lunch while working from home is that you can make a baon meal that you just can't get anywhere else. That doesn't mean that it can't be made! You can always order a Caesar salad from almost any restaurant but do any of them offer this delicious roasted version? If you have an oven or even a toaster oven, this is easily done! Once those leaves are toasted just right, you even have the option to use as much (or as little!) of the toppings as you like, too.

  5. Spicy Chorizo Gambas Recipe

    Gambas is spicy garlicky shrimp that is usually served as a tapas dish in Spain but you can change things up by amping up the flavor with chunks of cubed chorizo. Its paprika and meaty flavors enhance the taste of the shrimp and when you don't have crusty bread to soak those flavorful sauce, steamed rice will do as a replacement. Plus, if you don't like rice or bread, toss this entire dish with cooked pasta and you'll get an instant shrimp pasta that's loaded with flavor. What makes this a fabulous lunch idea? This cooks just as fast as it takes to prep your morning brew.
