Chunky Tomato Bisque

I’ll admit I’m not that organized when it comes to bringing lunches to work. I usually spend my weekday evenings decompressing from the workday and running after my toddler. Before I had my son I was pretty disciplined and brought my lunch to work all the time. Back when I had a ton of energy….
