Lunch Weeks 21-26: Sabbich, Mustard Salmon Salad, Pork Stir Fry, Vietnamese Summer Rolls, Leftover Pulled Pork with Coleslaw and Potato Salad, Smoked Salmon Salad

So every Sunday, I head over to the kitchen to whip up a big batch of food for lunch the next week. Yes, I brown bag. And I almost always do it every week unless I become too busy to even buy cold cuts from the deli. I do it for several reasons being health, finance, and laziness. Now, you may think that spending hours on a day off to prep and cook five meals at once is hardly lazy. But let me remind you, I hate it when the time comes to decide what to eat for lunch every day. I work in Midtown so the choices are endless. My problem, the more choices, the harder it is for me. So it's much easier for me to have my lunch ready and already decided.

So my lunch for the weeks 21-26: Sabbich, Mustard Salmon Salad, Pork Stir Fry, Vietnamese Summer Rolls, Leftover Pulled Pork with Coleslaw and Potato Salad, Smoked Salmon Salad

So just quickly running through my lunches from the past few weeks.

  1. Your summer roll is so gorgeous! Did you make those for the week though? How do you prevent them from drying out? I tried a damp paper towel once and just got wet paper towel bits stuck on them....!

    1. I made them every night for the next day. To prevent them from drying out and/or exploding, my good friend told me to wrap them individually in plastic wrap. And it worked! Also, since I was using an ultra thin rice wrapper, I doubled up on wrapping the summer rolls. I even hardly noticed.
