Happy Wednesday from Nantucket!
It’s the JUNE edition of Let’s Look!
If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). We have been doing this little linky party for years now, and it’s always one of my favorite posts each month because most of the topics are YOUR suggestions!
In January, we looked at HOW WE ORGANIZE FOR THE NEW YEAR.
In February, we looked at WHAT WE EAT IN A WEEK.
In March, we looked at OUR FAVES FROM HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE
In April, we looked at HOW WE DO DATE NIGHTS!
In May, we looked at OUR HOMETOWNS!
And today, we’re looking at….GO-TO SUMMER LUNCHES!
Um…this week, my go-to summer lunch is…
…a lobster roll with fries and a gorgeous view of the Atlantic ocean, BUT on a normal summer day, my lunch looks more like…
Whether it’s summer or not, I almost always have some sort of salad along with something else (wrap, meatball, sandwich, soup, etc) from my local grocery store or Trader Joe’s. I like a little something hot if I can help it…but a good and very flavorful salad with chicken is another fave of mine too.
Here are some of my go-to lunches this time of year:
1: Some sort of salad with chicken. I’ll almost always add something to it for a little zip…
…this one is great with an added bit of Buffalo sauce on top!
2: I love a chicken salad with crackers during the summer! My favorite one to buy is the curry version from Trader Joe’s. Even if you don’t think you love curry, I bet you’ll love this salad! My local grocery store makes a great chicken salad too that I often buy. Of course, when I make it at home, I almost always use a version of THIS recipe.
3: I will sometimes make a big batch of my mother-in-law’s pasta salad during the summertime for a quick and easy lunch. It gets better every day that it’s in the fridge, and we all love it, so that’s an easy thing to whip up and enjoy for days.
4: I love a wrap! I would rather make myself a wrap than a sandwich with bread. This one…
…my Buffalo Chicken Wrap is one of my favorite things to make (all of the ingredients are ones you probably already have on hand!).
5: One other easy lunch is sometimes, I just make myself a little charcuterie board. I’ll add turkey pepperoni, some cheese, a few nuts, maybe some grapes or blueberries with a few crackers. Sometimes, I’ll add some carrots and hummus or even pickles. This is such an easy way to enjoy lunch!
I mean…I’m pretty basic over here.
You all know that when I go to Chick-fil-a, my go-to order is always their cobb salad with a combo of their ranch and zesty Buffalo sauce. That is my FAVORITE thing to order there! I probably get at least one direct message a day from someone telling me they tried this combo and their life is changed. Try it. Get your life changed 😉 .
If you need other ideas for your summer…
I would LOVE to know what you eat for lunch during the summer for lunch! Any ideas would be SO appreciated! Please comment and share!!
