Because my husband is a firefighter who works 24-hour shifts on a rotating schedule that includes weekends, he is home for lunch usually three or four days. It's nice to have time to sit down and chat with him in the middle of the day while the kids are off at school. And it forces me to stop and eat a meal. When I am home alone, I often get wrapped up in work on my computer and just forget to eat or don't want to stop what I'm looking on.
Anyway, just sharing a recent lunch meal:
Red Bell Pepper
Mayo with olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
I served it with a homemade pasta salad.
