squash, spinach & blue cheese

This may just be the first time you’ve ever seen Tupperware on my blog. I have a love-hate relationship with Tupperware. I use it multiple times a day, often times for breakfast and lunch but I long for those wonderful glass containers that are just like Tupperware in every way….except that they are glass. And I work in a “food manufacturing facility” so no glass allowed! I also am subjected to random brownie taste tests…but I won’t complain about that ;)

But when it all comes down to it, it’s what’s inside that matters, right? A few weeks ago, I shared my psycho picky lunch habits with you all. Luckily there are a TON of lunch ideas in the comments section. (Thank you!!) And this lunch that fits some of my criteria, is one that I’ve been meaning to make since November. It is simple, easy to throw together, combines veggies and a little fat from the cheese. Round out the meal with some protein and it is almost perfect.

The squash was baked and topped with a little salt and pepper. Then I threw about 2 cups of spinach (half bag) in the Tupperware. When I microwave my meal at work, the squash gets hot, the blue cheese melty and the spinach wilts. It’s delicious and incredibly satisfying. And that’s really all I can ask for in a lunch – that and my 9 other lunch criteria…

    As an alternative to glass (and plastic) containers, they do make stainless steel lunch containers. That doesn’t help if you want to microwave your lunch, but if you wish to pack a salad or something that will be served room temp or cold, it’s a nice departure from the tupperware routine.
