a working lunch

as a young professional in the district of columbia, i’ve been finding it hard to make time to cook in the evenings and bring in leftovers for lunch. unfortunately, it’s getting expensive to keep buying lunch everyday at work — whole foods & chipotle don’t help my cause! thus, i decided to make a dinner that could be transformed into an equally as delicious lunch.

last night, i roasted chicken with tarragon and sauteed some veggies with bacon…. then used the leftover chicken to create a tarragon chicken salad! boom.
