Scrumptious lunch time ideas!

by | Dec 21, 2020 | Blog Page Posts Slider, News

Pumpkin soup. Here at Connemara Lettings HQ we are always looking for healthy and tasty food options for our lunches (we do like to treat ourselves sometimes too with Samantha’s fabulous baking skills). As the weather is getting colder we wanted something to warm us up! These lunches are quick and easy to make and are simply delicious. As it is autumn (I personally love all the autumn colours), we decided to go with an autumn themed lunch option with a pumpkin soup and carrot and apple porridge bread. The soup was quick and easy to make and was really filling, that coupled with the porridge bread and we were fully energised to get on with the rest of our busy day! As sharing is caring we want to share our lunch ideas with all of you lovely people so enjoy!!
