Lunch making Loathing

I hate making lunch.

I may even hate lunch in general, although that has slightly changed since second grade. You see, second grade is when my mom got fed up with my demands for lunch perfection and turned the kitchen over to me.

Now as teachers, I realize that we have all of this time for  a long leisurely lunch. But if I don't plan ahead, lunchtime equals scavenging time. Seven mints found in the bottom of my desk? Been there! Giving in to the breathed on, up for grabs goodies in the faculty room? Done that. Today's culinary masterpiece was none other than carrots and hummus... Which I didn't even take out of their containers first, just threw in my lunch bag. Womp womp. No creativity there. 

When I do cook, I love meals that I can get some mileage out of. I have no problem with eating the same thing for more than one meal as long as it is good.  This is an amazing thing because it means I don't have to aimlessly hunt for food in the morning.. As long as I prepare it the night before. 

Tonight's dinner, which makes it tomorrow's lunch, and possibly Thursday's lunch, is pizza bubble bread. A favorite which is so easy I don't hAve to think about it, just scrounge around and drop things on cut up biscuits. I've made it with many different toppings including chicken, artichoke, pineapple, olives, mushrooms, you name it.  Now because I haven't gone to the grocery store, tonight's bubble bread was a leeeetle simpler, but no less delicious!

Preheat oven to 350. In a 9 x 13 pan tear up two tubes of biscuits. I use the larger biscuits and tear each one into 4 to 5 pieces. And pizza sauce or tomato sauce if you're desperate, garlic, Italian seasoning, cheese of choice and pepperoni. I use turkey pepperoni as a semblance of healthiness.  Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Add about 30 minutes, I always do a check. This is because the middle biscuits don't cook at the same rate as the outer...so I cut the middle open a little for the cooking to take place. Once finished, be prepared to have some self control so that you don't eat the whole pan...or try to eat the whole pan....the whole pan might be a little much. After all, you gotta save some for lunch!
