I'm in the mood to cook a large amount of something this weekend and I thought it would be fun to bring in some lunch to the office on Monday to feed the guys I work with. Sort of as a thank you for all the coffees they've treated me to over time, and also because they're pretty much a captive audience!
Inspiration is not striking so I thought I'd solicit some suggestions. It would have to be something fairly safe (their usual lunch involves some sort of 'asian' teriyaki with rice, so not the most adventurous of palates) and something I could easily lug to work on public transit and preferably serve room temperature (perhaps with the option to microwave).
I'd like to push them out of their comfort zone a little, but not too much. If I can incorporate ingredients from local farmer's markets (I'm in Toronto, Ontario) that would be great too.
I'd be feeding around 8 people, and pork and beef are off-limits.
