So lately I’ve been trying to bring my own lunch more and more often this quarter. It was all working well until last week, when I had a tough exam schedule that made me a little lazy in terms of cooking and getting things ready. So I’ve been buying food on campus (not the best idea).

Now that I have a break from exams for this week, with the exception of my Spanish oral exam, I decided to make a better effort to pack my own lunch. I wanted to make something simple and something quick (in terms of cooking and eating).

Nicole and I were taken to the market today by our friend, which allowed me to buy more meat and other necessities. I’ve been missing milk for a long while now, but finally we have some. Yay! I bought a decently priced tri-tip. I try my best to buy large quantities of meat and storing them in the freezer. When I got back I trimmed the fat off the meat and separated the meat into three ziploc bags. I used the remaining meat for my lunch.

It’s really important for me to cook a lunch that is easy and quick, not only to cook, but to eat as well. The reason? Mainly because I end work at 12:30pm and start class at 1:00pm. My class and work location are on opposites sides of the campus. I don’t even think you could consider my work place as being part of the campus at all. So it takes me about 10-15 minutes to walk to class, therefore giving me 10 minutes or so to eat lunch before class. I know, poor scheduling on my part, but it’s the way things are twice a week for me.

The corn is just some can corn that I seasoned with pepper. The rice has some furikaki on it, and not pictured here, is some carrots to go with it.

Can’t wait to eat this tomorrow, yum!
