“Luncheon Specials”

My Luncheon Specials are a collection of my lunch meals. I create them as I go. I am usually inspired on weekends grocery shopping, at Whole foods or for example this past weekend at the “Veggie Fair” here in Dallas http://www.texasveggiefair.com/
Luncheon specials are also a translation from the Italian “Pranzo del lavoro”, usually found on boards or signs infront of local Italian restaurants offering a “Work lunch” menu, a moderate priced menu for workers out to lunch.  My “Luncheon Specials”, as are all my meals, determined and planned by my budget, my taste and my time. My luncheons are highly versatile and work wonderfully as dinners too! 🙂

  1. Reblogged this on Italian American Dual Citizenship and commented:
    As a Dually qualified Italian Attorney in New York, I receive many inquiries by American citizens of Italian ancestry that wish to obtain Italian American Dual Citizenship.

    Italian citizenship law is based on the jus sanguinis principle (citizenship by blood), and anyone with an Italian ancestor can claim Italian citizenship.

    Contact my office for more information about Dual citizenship
