Pasta salad is one of those dishes that is perfect for packed lunches. It’s meant to be eaten chilled so you can prepare it in the evening and stick it in the fridge. Then in the morning pop it into one of those lunch cooler bags with a little ice brick and it’ll stay perfectly cool until lunchtime. A great summertime lunch that is also a wonderful vehicle for a few of your daily fruit and veg servings.

This is my first post for 2010, so happy new year everyone, I’m looking forward to sharing a year of foodie adventures, advice and camaraderie with all of you here and out in the rest of the foodie blogosphere. I have a few things up my sleeve for this year, the first of which will be in celebration of my third blogoversary later this week, so keep an eye out for a few non lunch posts.
In the interest of improving my lunch pictures I’ve taken to photographing my lunch in the morning before I go to work instead of at night when I actually pack it. So that I can take advantage of some natural light and not have to use the flash on my camera. Let me know what you think, any feedback you have would be really appreciated.
