    Ive started temping at a solicitors for 2 days a week. Its been a bit difficult getting lunch there is all the usual Boots Marks etc.

    I wanted to do a Green day yesterday so walked a fair way to the market there is a stall that does Chinese food I thought I would get a portion of stir fried noodles so I asked the lady are they cooked in oil she said they are soaked in oil and water and then fried in oil,needless to say I declined ended up in Marks got a plain salad and fruit.

    How can you soak food in oil? Its gross what chance have you got with practices like this.

    It is because of this I simply make my own. I then have full control. I plan well in advance and it doesn't have to be dull, boring or cold.

    I always make my lunch in the morning before I go to work, that way I know exactly what is going in there.

    If you don't have time in the morning how about buying some mugshots or couscous & adding veggies to them?

    It was probably their traditional way of preparing the noodles. They might think our way of preparing food is "gross"!

    If you have a M&S near you then there are loads of choices of salads and prepared vegetables. When I worked in London I used to pick up my lunch from the M&S in Paddington Station and was spoilt for choice.

    pennypig - I love your avatar!! :D:D

    I always make my own lunches. I'm not sure how people can afford to buy a salad every day when it costs pence to make. :confused:

    I know what you mean I had salad stuff in the house I think some of it was laziness and not being organised too.
