For over a decade, I have worked remotely, doing technology things.
Many of the people I worked with had the joy, the privilege, of going to offices. The commutes. The small talk. The cubicles. The office politics. The birthday celebrations, with the cake.
Us remote workers, we get none of these things.
But: we do have lunch.
While the daily joys of office life are largely denied me, I manage to eat lunch every day. That simple act brings with it a level of expertise.
If I know nothing else, I feel very comfortable saying that, when it comes to lunch, I have something to offer. Cooking at home can be tricky, and a lot of us will often refrain from really using what’s available to us, primarily for reasons of time. However, with some planning and forethought, we can have some fine food without an enormous time commitment.
In this space, I will share some of the things I have learned over the years of cooking good food in a short amount of time. If you find it useful, great! And if you don’t, that’s great too! It’s a big internet, and you can look at cute dog gifs while you wait for your takeout to arrive.
But hey – I think it’s time for lunch.
