A Drama-Free 60 cents a day Work-Lunch prepared on Sunday to keep you warm and toasty all week long


Warm and cozy sounds weird to describe a work-week lunch time meal, but that's how I feel with my Thermos and "hippy-style" knitted thermos cozy that I knitted myself to keep the thermos warm on the outside.

My love of soups come together for a warm and cozy lunch-time meal during the work week, as I read Black Order: A Sigma Force an exciting espionage novel by James Rollins that takes me to several countries in a lunch time!

Here's an idea for a "drama-free" work week lunch-time meal. As the temperatures drop, a cold lunch-time meal just will not so for me. I love soup! So, I transposed my love of soup from dinner time only to a fun work week lunch meal. I made an extra pot of soup just for work lunches for the week. The cost: $3.00 for the week, or 60 cents per day!

Although I made a split pea soup for dinner this evening, I made a basic soup.

The basic soup lunch ingredients:

4 cups of fresh coarsely chopped turnip leaves, kale, spinach, or collard greens

2 cups of chopped carrots

2 cups frozen Lima beans

3 small diced oriental peppers

8-10 cups of water

Optional: 1 vegan bouillon cube

1 tap each turmeric, cumin, curry powder, garlic powder or to taste

* additional suggestions to twist it up during the week below


I cooked this for 10 -15 minutes and placed in 2 large containers in the refrigerator. To heat up, I'll just scoop the amount I want for a work lunch meal into a pot in the morning, reheat for 5 minutes or until hot, and place in my thermos.

Additional suggestions for a twist:

For a twist during the week to break up the monotony of a basic soup, add canned beans one or 2 days when reheating, wheat pasta, or bring vegetarian/vegan style home-made croutons or Italian bread and place in your soup when ready to eat.

Keeping the thermos warm on the outside (fun knitting project):

I use a Stanley Thermos that I knitted a thermos cozy for to keep the outside of the thermos warm. If you love knitting odd and end projects as I do from the normal scarves and sweaters, try this quick knitting project for thermos cozies to keep your soups warm:
