My summer of lounging around cafes and lunches in the Mission has sadly ended. I'll be posting about food options near my new job as soon as I remember to actually leave the office for lunch.
In the mean time, I'm trying to stock up on delicious components for meals I can throw together with no effort or notice.
I don't mean takeout. I mean prepared foods that are a cut above Trader Joe's frozen foods or mac and cheese. Points for anything nutritious or with shelf life of at least 96 hours.
Here are a few I've enjoyed recently:
-homemade pesto from Jim & Sons produce on 24th Street in Noe Valley. It's in the refrigerator in the back. Add a few red pepper flakes. Their fresh OJ is also very good.
-spinach ravioli from Lucca. I've always loved their cheese ravioli too. I didn't love their fresh meatballs though.
-lemon quark from the farmer's market (either Ferry Plaza or Alemany).
-heavenly natilla (Peruvian nutella? caramel Bodega Goat Cheese) at Ferry Plaza or Whole Foods.
What are yours?
