Apricot, Blue Cheese, and Honey Toast

One of the great advantages of working from home is lunchtime. When I worked away from home, I was a horrible lunch packer. Either I’d forget, be too lazy, or nothing would sound good when I needed to pack my lunch. Often I’d grab something from the local sub shop or make a quick run to get a salad. I tried leftovers and occasionally that would work, but for the most part, my lunches were awful.

Now that I’m home, I still set aside an hour for lunch but instead of heading out to grab something, I have an arsenal of lunches that are quick to throw together. Salads, sandwiches, pita pizza, leftover rice bowls, and toast. All meals only take 10-20 minutes to come together and are way more satisfying than the subs I use to eat. This meal in particular is great- quick to prepare but packs a punch of flavor. The apricots can be subbed out for peaches or nectarines and the blue cheese could be replaced with goat or even mozzarella for a mild flavor.
