Pot luck lunch
It's half term for the kids tomorrow and Friday but not for teachers. We have 2 staff development days, aka sitting in kid sized chairs in a classroom being talked at for hours.
Best part of these days is our pot luck lunch where everyone brings in something to share. There's no real planning involved and it usually works out.
My offering above is a 3 bean salad with a honey and mustard dressing (fat free) and Mexican chicken. I had 3 tins of beans in the store cupboard (red kidney, cannellini and chickpeas), onions in the veg basket and a bag of frozen chicken fillets in the freezer. I always have honey, mustard, cider vinegar and spices kicking around so no need to buy anything specially for the lunch (unlike some of my colleagues who were going to the supermarket after work tonight!!)
I haven't skimped on ingredients but still managed to make something nice :-)
