PACKED LUNCH MONDAYS: DESK DRAWER PANTRY {PART 1}

I wanted to do something a little bit different today for Packed Lunch Mondays. Instead of giving you another recipe, let’s talk about what’s in your desk drawer. And I don’t mean office supplies, but rather the little foodie bits and pieces that help make desk meals that little bit more special. If you work in an office environment like I used to, then you know that office lunches are often no fun. Having a well-stocked desk drawer is great for helping you eat well throughout the day, particularly if you have long of ... Read More
